Sentry Gateway Business Park

San Antonio, Texas

The Tilt-Up Concrete Association recently held its annual conference where the winners of the 2012 Tilt-Up Award were announced. The Sentry Gateway Business Park in San Antonio, TX received an award in the Office Division category. The 99,000 ft2 building is nearly 50 percent glass-to wall ratio and balances the structural aspect of the walls with an open appearance.

By using tilt-up construction the perimeter of the building was erected in three days which was a major advantage to the project. The building is designed to LEED Gold criteria and is currently in the process of becoming certified.

EE Reed was the General Contractor for the project and Urban Concrete Contractors was the sub-contractor. Rudy Gonzales (03) worked with Urban Concrete on this project to rent the tilt-wall brace package and sold SILCOSEAL 2000F bondbreaker, 10mil Stego wrap, Greenstreak formliner, banak reveal, and e-z chairs.

Thanks to Rudy for the information for this story and his hard work on this project.

Baton Rouge/New Orleans AGC Charity Golf Tournament

Baton Rouge, Louisiana

CMC Construction Services recently sponsored the Baton Rouge/New Orleans AGC Charity Golf Tournament that supports the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). Members of the Baton Rouge/New Orleans AGC Chapters believe in giving back to the community and this year’s tournament raised $11,000 for JDRF. In addition to being an event sponsor, Dean Hughes (41) served on a committee to help organize the day’s activities.

Hughes said, “I am glad that we work for a company that is willing to support efforts like this, it really shows the character of our company. Events like this help us to further our relationships with our customers so that we become the ‘Go To’ resource for product knowledge, necessary inventory to supply the entire jobsite and the capability to make timely deliveries to ensure work is not delayed.”

A special thanks to Dean Hughes (41) for the photos and information for this story.
