PROGRESS: HOUSTON COMMUNITY COLLEGE

The Historic San Jacinto Memorial Building in Houston, Texas is a three-story 180,000 SF building originally built in 1914.  Now a part of Houston Community College, the building is currently undergoing a complete interior renovation and is being redeveloped as an administrative and academic classroom building.  BRW is currently in the process of restoring the historic exterior of the building back to the glory of its original design.  Additionally, the finished building interior design will highlight its history while creating state-of-the-art spaces for the College’s future academic and education environment.

Here is a look at the current progress on the project:

Dallas Independent School District’s Woodrow Wilson High School opened for the 2013 spring semester with a new addition and a fresh renovation.  Although the official grand opening will not occur until April, we thought we might share a few sneak peak pictures.  We’ll be sure to give you the full photo tour once the grass greens up!
