Arias provided Construction Materials Testing Services for the construction of the new 4-story Academic Building on the Texas A&M San Antonio campus on South side of San Antonio, Texas.

The Central Academic Building is a (4) four-story structure located generally south of the existing Main Campus Building. An auditorium is also situated on the west side of the Central Academic Building.

The Central Academic Building evolves the aesthetics of the existing Multipurpose Building. The Central Academic Building is an iconic presence on the skyline of San Antonio and creates a significant brand presence for Texas A&M University-San Antonio.

The Central Academic Building is the foundation for all future projects providing a covenant of Spanish influenced classical architecture. The building defines the pedestrian ways and green spaces that will be linked throughout the entire campus. The public space is enhanced by the new plaza which is formed on three sides by the Central Academic building and opens to the elliptical mall directly to the north.
