We are thrilled to share with you the final outcome of our two-year project at Texas A&M International University in Laredo, Texas. Texas Wilson furnished the new Addition of Instructional & Support Spaces (AISS) Building that consists of classrooms, lecture halls, laboratories, and offices. This project was a success with the help of EYP Architects in the design process.

Today’s higher education spaces are expected to perform in ways we never would have imagined a decade ago. Learning spaces today need to be flexible and multi-functional to meet the reality of educational environments and to ensure student success. The evolution of academic spaces on campus continues to transform interiors into areas that are interactive, tech-enabled, and adaptable to a variety of uses for collaborative engagement. Our goal in higher education is to enhance learning environments and create inclusive spaces for all students.

The majority of the furniture used to furnish TAMIU’s new building was provided by Steelcase Education. Products consisted of gray Bob lounge chairs, yellow Lagunitas, Brody lounge seating, and Move armless chairs.

This project came to fruition just on time for the new academic year to start in the fall. We are proud to have played a role in the growth of TAMIU and are excited to see how they utilize their new AISS building.
