Imperial provided construction of all new facilities infrastructure. The infrastructure project addresses 5.5 acres of wet and dry utilities (gas, fiber optics, plumbing), including moving power lines along the closed portions of Lillian and Vanderbilt streets from overhead to below ground and installing adequate storm water drainage. Large amounts of surface storm water pooled along the closed portion of Vanderbilt Street during heavy rains. Overhead power lines were replaced, upgraded and installed underground to accommodate a growing physical plant on the Stephenville campus and avoid electrical outages. In addition, the project improved campus walkways and rehabilitated closed portions of Lillian and Vanderbilt streets into pedestrian malls.
These two pedestrian malls in the heart of the Tarleton State University campus will be nothing short of transformative for the daily experience of students, faculty, and staff. The Lillian pedestrian mall remakes the main entry of the campus into a place of prominence and accommodates both circulation between the vehicle and pedestrian. With a series of open gathering spaces, the Vanderbilt pedestrian mall creates a sense of rhythm and movement. Brick pavers accented throughout the mall bring warmth and character to the space while complimenting the existing color pallet found throughout the campus.
