Biography

Gary Hall, who earned a Bachelor of Building Construction degree in 1984 and is senior vice president at Project Control, was project director of the 21-month redevelopment of Kyle Field, the largest collegiate athletic construction project in history, completed on time, below its $485 million budget and without interrupting the Aggies’ home football schedule. He helped lead a team of thousands of workers facing a seemingly impossible completion schedule, achieved an unmatched level of distinguished accomplishment, created an iconic building and demonstrated to the world the value of the education he received at Texas A&M, said Joe Horlen, head of the Department of Construction Science, in a nomination letter for Hall and fellow Outstanding Alumnus and Kyle Field project leader Greg McClure ’90. Hall has also led construction of arenas for professional sports teams, new buildings and renovations at Rice University, and buildings for nonprofit groups including the Houston Food Bank and the Asia Society of Texas. These and many additional projects were marked by Hall's tireless commitment, professionalism and ability to unite a team, said Lisa Ritter '14, a project manager at Project Control, in an Outstanding Alumni nomination letter. "I believe the greatest testament to his leadership is the respect he is given by people who work for him and with him. That is certainly parallel to the respect he gives others," she said. Hall has also aided the Department of Construction Science’s curriculum development and fund raising as a past member of its Construction Industry Advisory Council.
