SAN ANTONIO - When ASCO Equipment was looking for a contractor to build their new sales, parts and service facility, they wanted a contractor that had extensive experience in working with privately owned companies.





    Hooker Contracting Inc. has been involved in the construction industry in South Texas since the mid ‘60s. A lot has changed since 1965 when H.V. Hooker founded Hooker Contracting. Today, the company is owned by Scott Shaheen and other employees. The employee-owned company specializes in design-build projects for private companies throughout Texas.
    Hooker began work on ASCO’s new sales, parts and service facility in June 2017. The project team for Hooker Contracting included Project Manager Scott Shaheen, and Assistant Project Manager Yvonne Masters. Project Superintendent Steve Jimmerson oversaw the $9,500,000 project and turned the keys over to ASCO in July 2018.
    The project site was once the old Keller Materials facility. The Hooker team began work with the demolition of the former Keller Materials office and warehouse space to make room for multiple site improvements. Once demolition was complete, construction of an approximate 21,000sf new showroom, office and parts warehouse space began in addition to approximately 25,000sf of new service bays and a new wash rack building.
    This project provides ASCO, which is the largest Case Equipment dealer in Texas, with a state-of-the-art facility to better serve their customers.
    Construction materials and systems included conventional steel framed structures as well as pre-engineered building systems, natural stone and stucco veneers, metal wall panels, metal and membrane roof systems, polished concrete floors, reinforced concrete paving and reinforced crushed stone paving.
    Other than working to overcome delays resulting from weather events, the project progressed very efficiently as a result of the owner, architect, engineers, contractor, subcontractors and vendors working as a team during the design and construction of this facility. This resulted in the most unique aspect of this project. Because of the cooperative working relationship between the owner and the design/construction team, the overall success of the project resulted in the delivery of a very efficient, attractive and cost-effective project.
    Hooker Contracting Inc. is a full-service design/build contractor in San Antonio, TX. -cmw
