The New Mexico Department of Agriculture is moving forward with major upgrades to its NMSU facilities. As the selected general contractor for the project, HB Construction will orchestrate new construction and renovations spanning three buildings. The Lab Building represents HB’s third project at NMSU.
The planned NMDA Lab Building will include dedicated labs for chemistry, metrology, seed, and petroleum. The project also includes a renovation to complete the NMDA chemistry lab and additional renovated space for the NMDA marketing department. Phased construction will allow for uninterrupted use of these facilities.
Dekker/Perich/Sabatini is the architect and lead designer on the project, joined by Bohannan Huston and EEA Consulting Engineers.
NMDA has been closely connected with NMSU since its inception. The department’s headquarters were established at NMSU in 1911, and the university’s Board of Regents functions as its governing board.
NMDA’s critical responsibilities include supporting agricultural producers, ensuring a safe and secure food supply, and ensuring responsible resource management. With a revived campus at NMSU that meets growing space and technology needs, the department will be positioned to serve New Mexico communities for decades to come.
The HB Construction project team is thrilled to join NMSU Facilities and Services, NMDA, and other participants on this important new project.
