 Texas A&M University Corpus Christi take tour of American Bank Center for class project 

Tour given by Chief Engineer Kenneth Bridgeman for final class project   

(Corpus Christi, TX April 20, 2017) On Wednesday, April 19, the Facility Management and design class over at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi paid a visit to SMG managed American Bank Center to tour the facility and talk about all things that make for a successful event venue. Students visited areas such as the American Bank Center Exhibit Hall, Selena Auditorium and arena.

Topics that were discussed were the history of building, different renovations the building has gone through over the years, dehumidification and more. These are all elements of facility management and design. Other topics included lighting and the process of the ice rink. Students got a firsthand look and were able to ask questions for their final project for the end of the semester.

“It was a fun experience, exclaimed Kenneth Bridgeman, Chief Engineer for SMG managed American Bank Center. It’s not every day that you get to see your building through the eyes of a student who is learning so much of this. Their set of eyes gave me a much different view of this great building and I hope to see more of these students visit us.”
