Showing Off Our New Contractor’s Lounge!

Dallas, TX

Dallas, TX

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!

New Product and New Vendor

Almand Light Tower

Recently, CMC Construction Services in Dallas sold seven Almand Light Towers to Webber, LLC. This is a new product for CMC Construction Services. John Pierson, North Texas Equipment Manager, secured pricing and established Almand Brothers as a new vendor. Due to John’s aggressive pricing negotiating Britt Sims was able to beat several competitors for this order.

CMC Construction Services provides many products our customers are not aware of and John’s sale motto is “don’t be afraid to sell anything, if we don’t have it we can get it.”

Thanks to John Pierson for submitting the pictures for this story.

Wheatland Towne Crossing

Dallas, Texas

Spring Valley Construction is expanding the Wheatland Towne Crossing shopping area with nine (9) additional buildings. The shopping area will include: PetsMart, Office Depot, Dollar Tree, Party City and 4 additional retail shells. The CMC Construction Services Engineering Department in Dallas was given the 220-panel job on July 11, 2011 and was able to step up to the challenge of completing the first “for approval” drawings in four (4) working days.

This job allowed our Dallas location to demonstrate services outside of the typical consumables such as liquid color, stamp designs, tube cutting, in the field panel layouts and engineering’s ability to design projects with minimal use of strong-backs.

A special thanks to James Caldwell (22) for his above and beyond attention and hard work on this project.

University of North Texas Football Stadium

By Bruce Fredrickson, CMC Construction Services – Dallas, Texas

Denton, Texas

CMC Construction Services is supplying the construction products and rental hardware to Xavier Structures on the new University of North Texas Football Stadium in Denton, Texas. The structural concrete project consists of a new, ground up replacement stadium built on UNT’s Mean Green academic campus. The new stadium is LEED certified intended and is the largest construction project in the history of UNT.

David Moland and I began the project with a site visit and introductions to the project team including: project manager, operations manager, superintendent, safety manager and lead field engineer. After providing them with project pricing and help with submittal documents, we were able to spec in Shepler’s Performance Products including Shep 309 Rez-All cure and Shep Farm Fresh form release.

Our Houston Rental Yard supplied the RJD Industries Fiberglass Wall Tie system for the large concrete walls. Xavier used NoxCrete Formcoat E for the architecturally exposed walls and used Simpson Titen HD anchor bolts and Simpson SET-XP epoxy when necessary.

In addition to a wide variety of hand tools, bits, blades and other consumables, CMC has provided several Bosch Power Tools. Larger ticket items sold on this job include multiple truckloads of SureVoid carton form and WR Meadows PMPC Waterproofing Membrane required in several food preparation rooms. This project also requires larger than usual quantities of everyday, non-stock items including snap ties, grout, vapor barrier, Syknoflex, and Euclid Verticoat patching material.

The geographic location of the project just outside the DFW Metroplex has presented some service and delivery challenges. Luckily, the site is equally distant from both the Dallas and Fort Worth branches. Operations has done a good job of sharing the load between the two branches when facing critical delivery deadlines. Individual inside and outside salespeople have also sacrificed when necessary to help me keep this large project serviced. It has been a team effort all around and I look forward to a continued effort throughout 2010.
