GALVESTON - Construction is underway for the 612-bed Maritime Cadet Residence Hall at Texas A&M University at Galveston. Hunt Cos. is designing, redeveloping and constructing the $45 million project in conjunction with Florida-based Moss & Associates.

Completion is targeted for fall 2015.

The new hall is slated to include two residential wings that connect to a central commons area. That commons area will be comprised of a mix of classrooms, study lounges, flexible social spaces, staff and cadet offices, a reception area, common laundry area, a convenience shop and storage spaces.

“The priority is to deliver a comfortable and amenity-driven living environment to the future cadets, instructors and staff of the residence hall at Texas A&M at Galveston,” says Sinclair Cooper, president of Hunt’s Public Infrastructure Division.

“This new Cadet Residence Hall will make the growth of our maritime academy possible and therefore provide the officers needed as America’s merchant fleet expands to meet national interests,” says Rear Admiral Robert Smith III, CEO of Texas A&M at Galveston and Superintendent of the Texas A&M Maritime Academy.
