June's Project of the Month + Industry Updates

July 6, 2021

Texas A&M University - San Antonio Campus

This project was completed in collaboration with

This stunning 19'x65' shelter structure with custom perforated panels was designed by PBK and installed outside TAMU San Antonio's new Academic & Administration Building. There is plenty of covered outdoor space for students and faculty, and the one-of-a-kind design blends beautifully with the lush green environment and the brick and stone façade building.

Both ends feature 2"x8" trellis tubes welded to the outer 6"x10" tube to let natural light in while keeping the area shaded and cool. The decorative panels are placed into the columns, and each has a slightly distinct opening type that also serves as additional shade. This design uses L-12 soffit panels for decking, drainage outlets for concealed waterflow, concealed connections, and column openings for electrical outlets.
