The Agriculture and Life Sciences Complex on the Texas A&M University campus in College Station is a 300,000-sf, four- building complex that combines 14 agriculture departments with classrooms, common areas, campus dining, break rooms, and office and administration spaces. Kirksey designed the educational spaces to foster collaborative teaching, research and extension efforts. Anchoring the complex and showcasing the history and future of agriculture is the new AgriLife Center. More than 600 faculty, staff and researchers call this new facility home. The Agriculture and Life Sciences Complex benefits faculty, staff, and students with the consolidation of all departments and administrative functions within a single, unified campus.
LEED certified, these buildings are designed for increased energy efficiency, decreased water use, and more efficient use of on-site resources. Unique sustainable features include extensive daylighting, high-performance lighting and mechanical systems, rainwater harvesting, and on-site storm water treatment.
Located on the path between Kyle Field and the Bush Library, this facility brings recognition to the finest college of agriculture in the country, creating an identity for AgriLife which had not previously existed.
