Brian Heath – Salt River Project

Standing outside in the searing Arizona sun, Brian Heath takes a break to wipe the sweat beading on his brow. It’s hot outside and he’s concerned. He’s just gotten word that the old clay pipeline at the Southside Water Service Center location collapsed and requires immediate repair. At Salt River Project in Tempe—one of the […]

Ben Butler – Greystar

It’s the Wild West indeed when it comes to rental housing. So many incomers from all demographics, and while there’s not necessarily a shortage of apartment complexes and villages in Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico, there is—in Ben Butler’s colorful words—an amenity war raging. The landlord who can provide the most comforts and conveniences will […]

Brian Martin – Medical City Plano and Medical City Frisco

No matter what the health crisis at Medical City Plano in North Texas, Facilities Management Director Brian Martin says the 600+ bed hospital, located in thriving Collin County, is ready. As Collin County’s only Level I trauma center, Medical City Plano regularly accepts transfer patients from more than 200 hospitals in a four-state region. Level […]

Blake Roberts – Legend Homes

When a real estate market turns sour—whether caused by market conditions or a pandemic—that’s not the time to panic, says President Blake Roberts of Legend Homes in Houston. In fact, it’s what he’d call a business opportunity. It was in this very situation that the Texas-based residential development company found itself, not once, but twice. […]

Brad Arceneaux – Market Basket

It really was a game of inches—two of them, to be precise. In 2017, when Hurricane Harvey inundated the Texas Gulf Coast, the Market Basket grocery store in Mauriceville, Texas, was one of countless properties to experience significant flooding. So when it came time to build a replacement store, company Director of Facilities Brad Arceneaux […]

There will be 73 new beds for patient care, with the potential for up to 230 beds. There will also be emergency medical services, a neonatal intensive care […]

BAD DEVL

In-demand finished lots for homebuilders are on the drawing boards, a busy Kelsey Stone tells Blueprint in late 2018. Lots that will be ready for construction, and have water, sewer and road access. Homebuilders, Stone explains, don’t always develop their own land. Here, in and around the Texas Hill Country, many have shifted to a […]

Building Products Plus Inc.

At first glance, the wooden wares offered by Houston-based Building Products Plus (BPP) might not seem like the stuff of glossy magazine spreads. Yet, you’ll see them on a golf course in Da Nang, Vietnam, supporting sand-trap embankments and water-retaining walls to the tune of 2,000 linear feet. They withstand the traffic of thousands of […]

Bell Mechanical Services

Being in the right place at the right time will benefit any business, and the folks at Bell Mechanical Services can count the blessings they have reaped ever since expanding into the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington area in 2008, after the success of their first operation in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Once the Great Recession receded, this part […]

Building Abatement Demolition Company Inc.

In Texas, the landscape is dotted with hundred-year-old courthouses, longstanding federal buildings and many other tributes to the Lone Star State’s long and proud history. But that ornate trim, those façades, those decorative ceilings—they aren’t without some baggage. “You see all these one-of-a-kind, handcrafted building materials on so many old buildings that are coated with […]
