The Texas Facilities Commission (TFC) is implementing Phase 1 of the Master Plans at both the Capitol Complex (CapCom) and the North Austin Complex (NAC). The TFC selected the CobbFendley team to provide professional engineering services as the Site Services Engineer (SSE) for the following projects.
Capitol Complex (CapCom) Projects:
The Capital Complex includes approximately 1 million square feet of office space, a five-level below grade parking structure, expansion to the Central Utility Plant (CUP), a walkable utility tunnel, and the conversion (Street Vacation) of Congress Avenue from 16th Street to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard into the pedestrian-only Texas Mall.
North Austin Complex (NAC) Projects:
The North Austin Complex includes a 400,000 square foot office building with an above-ground parking structure for approximately 2,400 passenger vehicles.
The CobbFendley team’s scope includes the following services, some already complete and some still underway:
