Central Texas College has over 40 buildings on its campus and requires a substantial facilities team to maintain the buildings and grounds. For over 30 years the Facilities department has been housed in an 11,000-square-foot building that has significantly outgrown the staff's needs for offices, storage, vehicle and maintenance shops. The College made the commitment in 2011 to provide the Facilities department with the space and equipment required to meet the demands of their essential tasks. The Facilities Complex is centrally located in the campus, a half-mile from the original Facilities Building, south of the Student Center and west of the Sports Complex. The complex consists of four buildings: Administration, Shops, Storage and Chemical Storage Buildings. The complex has parking for 104 cars and a wrought iron fence that bounds the north and south ends with access controlled vehicle and pedestrian gates. Existing grades required significant fill on the west and south sides, creating a hill in excess of 20 feet in height. Earthen fill was imported and compacted in order to provide a level building site. All of the buildings have slab-on-grade foundations with spread footings.

The Administration Building is the front door of the Complex. The campus material palette of brick, stucco and clay tile was incorporated by both literal and subjective means. The 11,000 square foot building contains staff offices, Building/Grounds maintenance and custodial services areas, conference and training rooms. The pre-engineered metal building is clad with the campus brick and stucco but the roof consists of standing seam panels with metal applications that have the shape and color of clay tile. The north/south corridor features tall ceilings (in excess of 20 feet) with east facing clerestory windows to bring in dramatic natural lighting.

The Shops building is a pre-engineered metal structure, with metal wall panels (of a finish similar to the campus stucco) along with a wainscot of cast stone and brick. The standing seam metal roof panels are the same color as the Administration Building roof. The building houses carpentry and vehicle maintenance areas. A separation wall occurs between the two shops to accommodate code and the differing clear heights of the two spaces. The carpentry shop consists primarily of relocated tools and equipment from the existing campus woodshop. A new paint booth was installed in this space to paint/lacquer furniture. All of the shop equipment is connected to a dust collection system. The vehicle maintenance area has three service bays, one with a drive thru, the others with a single entry. Vehicle lifts are in two of the bays, a permanent unit in one of the single entry bays and a moveable unit in the drive thru. Service reels are mounted above to provide compressed air, power and a connection to the vehicle exhaust system. A dedicated welding area is in this shop with a moveable exhaust apparatus. Each shop has an office, sink and emergency eyewash. Two restrooms and a shower occur between the two shops. A paved covered breezeway connects the shop and administration buildings.

The Storage building is to the west of the Shops building. This pre-engineered metal building contains equipment for the following departments: Custodial, Electrical, Building, Grounds and Mechanical maintenance. A bay of covered exterior storage occurs on the north end of the building. Chemical storage for Grounds and Building maintenance occurs to the north of the Storage Building.
