Texas A&M-Fort Worth Breaks Ground on Law & Education Building

FORT WORTH, TX — Texas A&M-Fort Worth recently broke ground on its first building for an urban research campus — a first-of-its-kind public-private collaboration intended to boost the regional economy while anchoring an innovation district in southeast downtown.

The Texas A&M University System is beginning construction on its Law & Education Building, a $150 million, eight-story home for the Texas A&M School of Law as well as other academic offerings by Texas A&M University, Texas A&M Health, and Tarleton State University.

The city of Fort Worth and Tarrant County are collaborating with the Texas A&M System to construct two additional campus buildings over four city blocks owned by the A&M System. The second structure, the Research & Innovation Building, is where several Texas A&M System agencies will work alongside private sector tenants. A third structure, the Gateway Building, will house offices, more classroom and meeting spaces, and a conference center.

Fort Worth Mayor Mattie Parker and Tarrant County Judge Tim O’Hare spoke at the groundbreaking event.

“The Texas A&M System is building exactly what Fort Worth needs in this moment in our history,” Parker said. “This groundbreaking today represents countless future careers in law, medical technology, nursing, and engineering, all of which are vital to meeting the need for a highly-skilled workforce in Fort Worth and North Texas for decades to come.”

“The Texas A&M System’s project will be incredibly vital to the long-term success of Tarrant County," O'Hare said. "It will bring in multiple high-quality business relocations to partner with the university and will enhance an already first-class downtown.”

Stantec will serve as the architect of record for the Law & Education Building and provide lab planning services on the project in partnership with the design architect, Pelli Clarke & Partners. The construction management teams are Turner Construction Co., CARCON Industries, Source Building Group Inc., and Dikita Enterprises.

The Law & Education Building will be completed by 2025, with the goal of completing the first three campus buildings by 2027.
