In 2017, Halford Busby prepared construction docs to design a new building for Texas A&M University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, dedicated to phase two of the Equine Initiative. The Texas A&M Equine Initiative aimed to bring together equine research, teaching, extension, and outreach in the Texas A&M College of Agriculture & Life Sciences and the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM).
The building consisted of facilities for nutrition research labs, a large covered feeding barn, wash bays, a veterinary examination area, hay and grain storage area, nutrition turn-outs, pastures and fencing. Project highlights include:
- 258,000 square feet of top-tiered space,
- A new equine facility,
- Consolidates academic programs,
- 11 structures,
- 700-foot long barn and
- A room to host live auctions as a revenue generator for the school.
The completed building is located north-northeast of the phase 1 Equine Initiative, between N. Harvey Parkway and Finfeather Road.
