Recently, our location on Irving Blvd. in Dallas had an Open House on Thursday to showcase its new Contractors Lounge, and it was a huge success! More than 100 customers were able to enter a random drawing for terrific giveaways such as a 50 inch flat screen TV and many great tools that were donated by our selected vendors.
A free lunch was provided for all the customers, and vendor booths were set up throughout the store. Thanks to the awesome sales team at Construction Services, the vendors received a record amount of orders. They all said this was the best Open House they had ever participated in.
Thanks to everyone who helped make this event a fun and successful day!
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!

Construction is under way for a new downtown Houston YMCA facility. Tellepsen is serving as the general contractor, Kirksey was selected as the architect and Haynes Waley is providing structural engineering services for the project.
Jesse Sandoval, supplied Tellepsen with the vapor barrier and steel-ply forming material for the parking garage, hi chairs for the columns along with several other construction products.
The new facility is a block away from the current downtown YMCA location and will be the second largest operating YMCA of the Greater Houston area. The 120,000 square foot facility is scheduled for completion in 2010 and includes additional exercise rooms, a chapel, a women’s wellness center, a daycare and many more features.
The facility is incorporating green building practices and is pursuing LEED® certification. Shep 309 Rez All, Shep Select Self-Leveling and Shep Farm Fresh are being used on the job helping contribute to LEED points.
