Satterfield & Pontikes Construction (S&P) won the top award in the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Greater Houston Excellence in Construction Awards, Light Industrial category for its work on the S & B Modular Operations Fabrication Facility.
The Excellence in Construction competition recognizes outstanding projects in several categories ranging from commercial and industrial construction to interior renovations and historical restorations. The award not only commends remarkable feats in the construction industry, but also the project’s safety record.
S&P constructed the 78,000 square foot S & B Modular Operations facility that fabricates and assembles modular components for industrial processing sites. The facility features a specially engineered metal building designed to accommodate the massive weights of the large custom-made components. More than 50 cranes, with capacities ranging from two tons to 50 tons, provide wall-to-wall coverage in the manufacturing bays. A unique feature of the project is the placement of 35 acres of roller-compacted concrete in only three weeks.
S&P managed the entire design-build project from concept to owner move-in, including all phases of the unconventional design approach and fast-track construction schedule. The $16.8 million project was completed in only nine months.
