Infrastructure Division

Mission Statement

The Infrastructure Division provides sustainable planning, design, construction and support services to enable partner divisions to provide meaningful outdoor experiences to the people of Texas.

Vision Statement

We help to enhance the quality of life of the people of Texas by contributing to the accomplishment of the department’s mission.

To the people of Texas we have a responsibility to provide the highest level of stewardship of the natural, cultural, and fiscal resources that they have entrusted to us.

To the other divisions that are our customers we have a responsibility to provide first-class customer service. We provide to them a quality product that has value, by creating a collaborative partnership built on trust and open communication. We do not just listen to the customer, but truly seek to understand their needs and concerns.

To accomplish this, we are organized into multifunctional regional teams that turn the customer divisions’ needs into completed projects.

Ultimately, we add value to each project through a collaborative effort to provide superior customer service and stewardship of resources so that TPWD can provide hunting, fishing and outdoor recreation opportunities for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.

TPWD Projects

The Infrastructure Division administers Texas Parks and Wildlife Department's Capital Program. Through the Infrastructure Division, the department annually bids, on average, hundreds of construction and professional service projects statewide ranging from under $25,000 to multi-million contracts.

TPWD projects include major repairs and new construction of buildings, utilities, site work, and restorations at various state parks, fisheries, wildlife management areas, field offices, and other facilities all over the state. Additionally, Infrastructure is responsible for all professional design projects for the department.

Requirements for construction contracts vary depending on the estimated cost of the project:

Insurance is required by state law and requirements may vary based on the individual project conditions. For most construction contracts over $10,000, the contractor is required to provide proof of insurance before authorization is granted to proceed with the work.
