Texas A&M University, Commerce, TX

Music Building – This $29M project consists of a 2-story, 80,000 SF music facility built in 2010 on the west side of the campus, visible from Highway 50, between University Drive (the main entrance to the campus) and Memorial Stadium. To accommodate the new Music Facility, the football dressing room building, also known as the T-Lounge, was relocated. Additionally, alterations were made to the parking lot that originally served the Memorial Student Center to align with the requirements of this music facility. The building boasts cutting-edge performance, rehearsal, and instruction facilities, a concert hall with a seating capacity of 600, a recital hall accommodating 75 guests, 5 rehearsal halls, classrooms, piano and electronic music labs, as well as studios and practice rooms.

New Sam Rayburn Student Center – This project entailed the construction of the Sam Rayburn Student Center, spanning an impressive 96,000 square feet. Completed in 2009, this state-of-the-art facility is situated on the Texas A&M campus in Commerce, Texas as a replacement of the aging Sam Rayburn Memorial Student Center. As the Program Manager for this project, Dikita’s responsibilities included reviewing A/E proposals and making recommendations during the selection process, overseeing development of design drawings and specifications by assigned A/E firms, maintaining budgets and schedules, providing Quality Assurance functions during design and construction, and executing project close-out.

Following an expansion in 2014, the Rayburn Student Center (RSC) now covers a total of 120,000 square feet.
