New Mexico State University has issued a Request for Proposals for facility work on its Grants campus.
The project is centered on the renovation and upgrading of the school’s Walker K. Martinez Hall, a structure that was originally built in 1978.
The nearly 80,000 square foot building, located on the east side of the campus, is expected to see an upgrading of its HVAC system as well as its fire alarm infrastructure.
Also included in the project is the renovation of the structure’s restrooms in order to make them Americans with Disabilities Act compliant; roof replacement; and the installation of a new roof drain and overflow.
The renovation, as designed by the Albuquerque-based Van H. Gilbert Architects, will additionally see the installation of new restroom flooring; plumbing, electrical, and lighting fixtures; and new ceiling, door, and frames.
The building is one of the most-frequented structures on the campus, housing offices, classrooms, and meeting spaces.
The RFP has a submission deadline of June 16.
