A three-story structure on the central east side of the main Las Cruces campus of New Mexico State University is in line for a signification renovation.
The Thomas and Brown Hall, which was built in 1971, may soon house all of the College of Engineering’s degree programs.
The plan is part of an effort to better utilize space, as laid out earlier this summer in a document called the Space Consolidation Study NMSU College of Engineering.
That consolidation effort will also free space in other campus buildings currently housing different engineering programs.
Now, NMSU has issued a Request for Proposals for a qualified architectural engineering firm, as well as a planning service firm, for the renovation project.
The RFP is asking for, among other things, phased cost estimates for the renovation project, with the idea that a master plan can be developed by the spring of 2020.
The deadline for the RFP is November 4.
The Thomas and Brown Hall is named in honor of two NMSU engineering professors: Melvin Thomas and Harold Brown.
