A New Hilton Garden Inn Location

Hilton Garden Inn

Bryan, Texas

In December 2012, a Hilton Garden Inn broke ground in Bryan, Texas. Our College Station branch working alongside Brightman Construction, sold and serviced this project.  When complete the hotel will be a five-story 83,000 sq. ft structure with an additional 87,000 sq.ft in paving.

CMC Construction services provided the rebar, fabricated rebar, poly, chairs, redwood headers, safety supplies, chemicals, and many more products for the completion of this project. Bill Kiser (56) was responsible for fabricating material; while Frank Patranella (56) and MaryAnn Astolfo (00) coordinated rebar and materials being delivered to the jobsite.

A special thank you is due to the entire College Station Branch for continuing to provide superior customer service and whose commitment has allowed this job to proceed without any delays in construction.

Texas State Highway 19

Huntsville, Texas

Huntsville, Texas

In 2012, Smith & Company started work on a $14.36M highway construction project just outside of Huntsville, Texas. The complete project consists of four lane highway improvements on SH19, including exit and entrance ramps between IH-45 to Hwy 30. Pictured above are the columns that will be used to hold the road signage along the highway.

These columns were designed using job built ¾” plywood face, aluminum stiffeners, 20 mm tie rods with plate washers, flange nuts and channel collars.  They are braced with Shepler’s pipe braces each side. The columns are tapered, 26’ high with a 4’2” ID base and 2’9 ID top.  CMC Construction Services supplied the fabricated rebar, forms and chemicals including form release and Simpson anchoring epoxy.

We would like to say thank you Debra Samson (55) for providing the story and images for this project.

Lake Charles Grain and Feed Silos

Lake Charles, Louisiana

Lake Charles, Louisiana

In October 2012, Todd & Sargent began construction on eight whole grain silos and four shipping bins at the IFG Port Holdings in Lake Charles, LA. The whole grain silos are 44 ft. in diameter, 168 ft. high, have a 36,000total ton capacity and contain concrete suspended hoppers. The shipping bins are 30 ft in diameter, 168 ft. tall and have a 8,800 total ton capacity.

This project required several CMC Construction Services departments and branches to work together. Bill Sheu (Houston) and Steve Wilson (41) made a site visit to discuss the plans with the customer and Mei (Maggie) Qu (Houston) designed the project to the customer’s satisfaction. The forming material for this project was shipped from France and the engineering was a unique pie-shape cut from lumber.

Cade Cothern (41) scheduled on time deliveries for all material from Baton Rouge and Bob Dozier (45), Dan Bass (45) and the entire Lake Charles branch (45) supplied the remaining products such as tie wire, form oil, curing compound, lumber and safety equipment.

Thanks to everyone that helped make this project a success!
