Achieving the end goal

image Gateway at Spring Valley

HOUSTON – Arch-Con Construction has recently completed the Gateway at Spring Valley project located at I-10 and Campbell Road. The co-developers are Ersa Grae Corp. and StollerUSA.

    Tenants include part owner StollerUSA (4th and 5th floor) as well as East West Bank (3rd floor office and 1st floor bank branch). The restaurant Peli Peli will also be on the first floor.
     Arch-Con Construction’s senior vice president is Jason Cooper; senior project manager is Ken Hudson and the building superintendent is Montan Montemayer.
     According to Cooper, the construction team utilized four story tilt wall panels to achieve a fire rating between the building and the parking garage.
    “The site was very constrained, therefore staging deliveries was crucial as storage and construction workers were at a premium,” he said.
     Cooper says the exterior construction materials included glass curtain wall and architectural precast with tilt wall panels between the building and parking garage.
    The interior construction materials included stone, glass, glass walls, upgraded light fixtures, cork flooring, wood veneer, motorized fabric blinds and 3M acrylic panels
     Major challenges were keeping the Class A project within its preliminary budget and having a tight timeline.
    “We held the budget by working with the design team from the onset of design and reworking design features to ensure the architectural intent was maintained,” he said. “With the amount of rain in 2015, the timeline was constricted.
    “We overcame this by overlapping trades and starting core MEP work early by staging the curtainwall installation. From an interior perspective, there were a number of regulations from the City of Spring Valley that we needed to work within and working with multiple tenant vendors on state of the art technology.”
     Cooper says the owner, construction team and architect all worked together well to achieve the end goal of a beautiful and successful building.
    “We were able to move the tenants into the building on time with the exemplary teamwork,” he said.
      President and CEO Michael G. Scheurich founded Arch-Con Construction in 2000. The company has offices in Houston and Dallas and employs 85 people. The general contractor specializes in commercial design and construction services for real estate developers, building owners, architects, brokers and tenants. –ab
