Kathleen C. Cailloux Hall Professional Studies Building

Client: Schreiner University

Location: Kerrville, TX

Type: New Construction

Size: 18,400 SF

The new Kathleen C. Cailloux Hall Professional Studies building is a 3-story 18,400 square foot education building. The brick and cast stone exterior along with the fenestration rely on the campus’ existing architectural vocabulary while adding a new measure of sophistication to it.

The building’s arched main entrance evokes the look of vintage campus buildings welcoming students inside. The front loggia provides cover from sun and elements and a place for meeting and socializing. The first two floors are dedicated to classrooms and offices. The third floor dormered attic space is planned for additional offices. The design respects the University’s rich architectural tradition while providing students with a “state of the art” facility to house the Business Department, Graphic Design Photography and Art programs.

Awards received for this project included:

  • 2003 Golden Trowel Award for Superior Design from the San Antonio Masonry Contractors Association
  • 2002 Excellence in Construction Award from the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc.
I have high praise for the Lopez Salas team for their collaborative spirit and compatibility. They listen, and they listen with care. They document and they communicate. They follow up on loose ends. And they are successful in working with all sorts of personalities to defuse potential problems. They are strong professionals and a pleasure to work with. We have developed a relationship of mutual respect during all of our projects.

Our Cailloux Hall project, the home of our School of Professional Studies, won more than one award, and it is much admired by visitors to the campus.
