HB Construction recently kicked off another project at New Mexico State University, a new 300-bed student housing facility located north of the Corbett Center Student Union. A crowd of supporters gathered Friday to celebrate the moment.
University officials, including Chancellor Garrey Carruthers, were on hand to commemorate the project and its impact on NMSU’s future. The new dorm is part of a larger mission to increase retention rates and provide students with world-class facilities.
Angela Throneberry, recently retired Senior Vice President of Administration and Finance, put the new facility into perspective. “Facilities and housing are a major part of recruitment, retention, and the success of our students. This new facility will provide our students with great amenities, but also the tools, resources, and support areas that they need in order to be successful.”
HB Regional Vice President Travis Coker talked about working with NMSU. “The university has a clear commitment to improving the student experience. We’re here to help deliver on that commitment.”
Besides student living, the three-story Residence Hall will include classrooms, a student lounge, and outdoor common areas. HB Construction is proud to work with the university and the designer, Parkhill Smith & Cooper, on the project.
