HUNTSVILLE, WALKER COUNTY - Sam Houston State will build a $22 million engineering technology center and add $9.5 million worth of renovations to the Bernard G. Johnson Coliseum.

The 53,000-sf engineering technology center will house labs for agriculture science and engineering technology.

The building will be named for the late Sam Houston State alum and Therm-Omega-Tech Inc. founder Fred Pirkle, who donated money for the project. The center will also have an interdisciplinary multipurpose room and administrative offices.

In renovations and updates, the Bernard G. Johnson Coliseum's original mechanical equipment — including the heating and air conditioning system — will be replaced, 1,000 seats will be added, and another 4,000 sf will be built out. The facility was built in 1976.

A timeline for the project is still to be determined.
