Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity Contract Work

A&M Vet Hospital
In late 2009, PDG Architects was awarded our second Texas A&M ID/IQ. To date we have participated in the following projects

TEEX Training Facility – Riverside Campus

Texas Engineering Extension Services (TEEX), trains police and sheriffs for the surrounding law enforcement agencies utilizing a training facility owned by Texas A&M University. PDG has designed a new state-of-the-art facility that focuses on conditioning and agility training. The 9,500 SF building houses men’s and women’s locker rooms, a weight training gymnasium and an aerobic conditioning gym that can be used as a multi-purpose room and/or sub-divided into smaller spaces if needed. The training facility will be located adjacent to the TEEX classroom building and outdoor training area. The design for this masonry and metal panel building features sustainable design elements such as: north facing clerestory windows, low flow plumbing fixtures, and an energy efficient HVAC system. We anticipate meeting LEED® Certification criteria upon completion of this facility.

Multi-Species Research Center - College Station Campus

PDG Architects is currently designing a new Multi-Species Research Center for the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biological Sciences.  This facility will be approximately 21,000 square feet in size and is designed to house up to 160 dogs, as well as a variety of other, smaller animals.  To support the University's numerous animal health and treatment research programs, the Center will also include laboratory, imaging, treatment and surgical facilities. The original budget for this project was $2.2m, however an increase in building size is currently being considered by Texas A&M that if approved, would increase the budget to approx. $4m.

Women's Soccer Field Stadium Enclosures - College Station Campus

 PDG completed the design of canopies to cover existing bleachers at this field. The design solution had to adapt to a very tight site and the construction of these covers will need to be phased to allow for the soccer games to continue throughout the construction period. The budget for this project is $2m.

Erosion and Sedimentation Storage and Control Buildings  – College Station Campus 

PDG was contracted to design two buildings and a covered preparation area for the agricultural department at Texas A&M.  The first building, 40' x 60', is to house the departments equipment and soil samples and the second building, 60'x60' was to be a laboratory designed with rain racks and other testing equipment allowing for the simulation of erosion and sedimentation.  This facility tests samples from microscopic to those delivered via crane and thus this facility is being designed with the clear height required to accommodate this need while not exceeding the height restrictions of the nearby College Station Airport.  The budget for this project is $1.2m.

Vehicle Maintenance Facility - College Station Campus

PDG Architects has been contracted to design an building addition to the existing vehicle maintenance building on the main campus.  This addition, 50' x 100', is to provide an additional 8 bays to be utilized for the repair and maintenance of the universities buses, tractors and other large equipment.  The budget for this project is $1m.

Large Animal Hospital Canopy - College Station Campus 

 PDG was contracted to design a canopy addition to the Large Animal Hospital at Texas A&M main campus.  This canopy is intended to provide shelter during the handling of animals as they are moved into and out of the facility.  The budget for this project is $500,000.

Ag Café – College Station Campus

PDG was contracted to conduct a conceptual study to determine the feasibility of expanding the existing Ag Café, a popular food service venue on the main campus of Texas A&M University. Conceptual designs were developed along with associated cost estimates. Actual projections for increased revenue versus the project costs (cost/benefit ratio) were reviewed and our client reached the decision that the study had shown the expansion would not be profitable at this time.

Soccer Field Restroom Renovations/ADA Up-grades – College Station

PDG is currently working with Texas A&M’s Athletics department to design a meeting room and restroom facilities for the patrons of the 2009 NCAA Champion Women’s Soccer team and the Intramural Athletics department. This fast paced project is slated to be a new CMU and brick clad, metal building with men’s, women’s and family rest rooms and a multi purpose room. This facility will be located between the soccer field and the existing intramural fields. The facilities will be accessible from both the fields and allow each facility to secure the other side to ensure fans cannot enter without purchasing tickets.

Project under previous ID/IQ (within the past five years) includes:
Hotard Hall - Renovation/Adaptive Re-Use. In an effort to better utilize an existing facility, Texas A&M University made the decision to convert a 60 year-old dormitory, into much needed office space. This four-story, 20,000 SF building was slated to be split among two departments: General Academic Programs and the Center for Academic Enhancement. The new layout for the building provides much needed office, counseling and tutorial space. The conversion and renovation of this building presented several challenges, including the existing 9' clear height, accessibility, space constrictions, and staff adjacency requirements. In order to solve access dilemmas, an elevator was installed, old doors were replaced, and the restrooms were reconfigured. PDG worked closely with the MEP consultant to design an MEP system that would be compatible with the 9-foot floor-to-deck height and closely monitored the work throughout construction.
