Keystone began 28 years ago with one man in a one car garage. Today, we have 35 employees and are preparing to break ground to double our 22,000 square foot facility in Bryan, Texas. We are so thankful for the leadership of Keystone’s Owner and President, Bob Kraus, the hard work of each Keystone team member and the continued trust from our customers to provide the very best millwork. Here’s to many more years!
The new Fred Pirkle Engineering Technology Center at Sam Houston State University is home to the Department of Agricultural and Industrial Sciences. This 53,500 sq. ft. building contains an Innovation Lab, work shops, clean manufacturing spaces, and ancillary laboratory classrooms for Electronics, Robotics, and Sustainable Energy as well as classrooms and laboratories for Agricultural Sciences. There is also an honorific museum for the building’s namesake, Fred Pirkle, and a rotating light display that bears his name above the open collaboration room.
Our work is on display throughout the building including the lab and classroom casework, glass display case, trim and window sills and the solid surface lavatory countertops.
The Commons is located on the Southeast side of Texas A&M’s main campus in College Station, TX and is regularly frequented by the nearly 4,000 students who live in the adjoining residence halls who use the Commons to study, dine and socialize. This was the first renovation to the Commons since it was built in 1971. The goal of the project was to update the facility and create an open, inviting space for students that was dynamic, energetic, upbeat and would contribute to the social fabric of campus.
Keystone Millwork provided the millwork throughout this project including custom reception desks with metal base molding and reveals, 3 form panels, solid surface and quartz countertops, wood base molding, custom upholstered wood benches, shelving and casework.
We are happy to be a part of another quality project at Texas A&M and are hopeful that the renovations will enrich the lives of students there.

Former Texas A&M Corps of Cadets would have surely enjoyed having a Starbucks in their dorms to help them get through morning PT (physical training) but it is the current students who get to enjoy this new luxury. A two story Starbucks is part of the complete Corps dorm renovation led by Spawglass. We are pleased to have contributed to such a great project.
