SAN ANTONIO – After discovering a passion for design build, Kevin Reid established Reid & Associates (R&A) in Albuquerque, NM in 1990. Two years ago, he expanded operations by opening Reid & Associates of Texas in San Antonio, where Reid, founder and CEO, lives today.

    Born and raised in Texas, Reid grew up and attended the University of Texas in Austin. After graduating with his degree in architecture, he practiced architecture in Austin and Dallas, but he became frustrated and realized he wanted to do more than just the design.
    “I wanted to be able to fully integrate that design through the completion of a project,” recalls Reid. “So, the construction side of the business gained a lot of interest for me.”
    He went to work for the Wray Company, out of Arizona, where he saw many advantages to the fully integrated approach of having the architectural and engineering design team at the table with the contractor from the inception of a project.
    Celebrating the 25th anniversary of his company, Reid is still the sole owner. The vice president in charge of construction companywide for R&A is John Bonney, who also lives in San Antonio and runs the San Antonio office. In Texas, R&A’s biggest markets are industrial manufacturing and warehouse projects and senior living facilities.
    The company’s largest client is a company that Reid co-founded with Ben Spencer in 1999. Merging R&A’s development division, which specialized in industrial, call centers and offices, with Spencer’s retail development, they partnered to form Titan Development, which is a wholly separate company.
    “[R&A] provides all of the design build, construction, due diligence – it really acts as an internal delivery system for the development company on all things related to design and construction,” Reid explains. “Depending on how busy Titan is on any given annual basis, they range from 50 to 70 percent of our total workload, and then the other 30 to 50 percent is what we call third-party construction that Reid & Associates does for other owners.”
    Examples of the work R&A is doing for Titan currently include an Elan senior living facility outside of Austin and a large Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in La Cantera in San Antonio. R&A is also working on three separate Titan Industrial Parks in Schertz, Selma and New Braunfels.
    Reid & Associates is a design build general contractor specializing in private commercial and industrial projects. The company is based in Albuquerque, NM with an office in San Antonio and a division in The Villages, FL. –mh
