Parkway Central Office Complex

Houston, Texas

Parkway Central is the first of several projects being developed by Core Real Estate on a 9 acre site located on the Westside of Houston along the North Sam Houston Tollway. Parkway Central is a 228,000 ft², four-story office building featuring 11 ¼” thick panels with the tallest panel being 73’ 11” and weighs 166.5 kips.

James Beaird (51) worked with Texas A&M Concrete and Debra Samson (55) worked with general contractor DE Harvey Builders to supply the Power Shep Lift Inserts and the Burke B-52 Braces for this project. All together it was a total of 174 braces which were braced to the outside with the Badger Helical Anchor System.

Jeffrey Brown, a principal with Houston-based Powers Brown Architecture specializes in designing tiltwall buildings.

 “The tiltwall method is even more appealing now because of the cheaper way to meet the rising demand for office space in west Houston. Tiltwall projects are faster and less expensive than traditional office construction and that is the big hook that’s got people attracted to it.”

Among the projects CMC Construction Service is proud to be a part of is a proposed 250,000 ft², five-story office building off I-10 and Greenhouse Road in the Energy Corridor.  We would like to thank Debra Samson for the great information and pictures for this story.

College Station Branch of the Year 2012

College Station, Texas

For the first time CMC Construction Services is awarding two branches a Branch of the Year trophy. The new Branch of the Year awards are awarded to a large branch and a small branch based on the amount of revenue. This week the large branch “Branch of the Year” trophy was awarded to Branch 56 in College Station, Texas for FY2012. Branch of the Year is determined by Sales, Safety Record and Service.  Area Manager, Melanie de los Santos had the following to say about the branch:

 Congratulations to the College Station team for the Branch of the Year accolade.  This group of employees exemplifies the meaning of customer service and hard work.  Their sales and safety records speak for themselves.  It sure doesn’t hurt that they throw great customer appreciation luncheons and tailgates (Gig’em Aggies).  Please join me in thanking all the personnel in this branch for their efforts in the past year.  We can all learn a few lessons from them.

Congratulations to the employees of the College Station branch and thanks for a great year!
