A branding building

SAN ANTONIO - Rooms To Go (RTG) buildings are a big part of their branding. With that said, finding the right contractor for their newest location was essential. O’Haver Contractors with their vast experience in retail, industrial, education, medical, hospitality, libraries and municipalities, seemed to be the right fit for the new Rooms To Go Round Rock (RTG) project.


   The new retail store construction included, but not limited to the construction of an adult showroom, a kids showroom, offices, break-room, utility rooms, a shipping and receiving warehouse, loading dock, recycling center, storage areas, overhead garage doors, HVAC,  a mechanical room, plumbing, an electrical room, fire protection/sprinkler system/alarm, signage, site work, landscaping, irrigation, and a parking lot with markings
    The exterior of the building was comprised of CMU, steel framing, stone, glass, EIFS, TPO roofing, and glass curtain-wall system.
    The store’s interior was made up of  metal studs, drywall, ceramic tile, carpet, wood and metal trim with exposed painted ceilings and structural steel.
    “The project site was in a highly visible location and the building acts as a sign so its appearance is very important during and after construction. The interior of the building is a showroom designed to be integrated with the furniture and became part of the display.  This led to interesting finishes and designs, which are unique to this building.  While the building is integral to the RTG brand, no two buildings are identical,” says Project Manager, John Zamoyski.
    RTG does their construction management in-house.  This led to very little interaction with the architect and  engineers.  Nearly all communication and decision making was through the RTG construction manager.  Casco Corp was the architect for the project.
    O’Haver Contractors’ Project Manager, John Zamoyski, Superintendent John Salmon, and General Superintendent Wayne Wright oversaw the construction of the 55,000-sf, $8 million project that took 11 months to complete, start to finish.
    The success of the Round Rock project led to O’Haver Contractors breaking ground on the Denton, TX location in April.
    A closely held limited partnership established in 1996 by company founder and President, Donald R. O’Haver II, calls San Antonio home and pursues work throughout Texas in both the private and public sectors. -cmw
