DALLAS, August 11, 2022 – Adolfson & Peterson Construction was recognized by TEXO, the largest construction industry trade association in Texas, at its Distinguished Building Awards Recognition Dinner on August 11, earning two awards.
AP team members and guests attended the ceremony held at Fort Worth’s Stockyard Station. Birdville ISD’s Haltom and Richland Middle Schools earned TEXO’s First Place Distinguished Building Award for Educational Facilities over $75M and Park Cities Presbyterian Church (PCPC) was recognized as a Distinguished Building Award Merit Winner in the Historic Renovation category.
“These awards affirm the quality of work AP strived to implement in not only these two projects but all of our work. We faced several unforeseen challenges related to winter storms as well as code and infrastructure hurdles,” said Zack Rogers, AP’s vice president and project executive. “Our team came together collaboratively and creatively to deliver facilities that met the needs of BISD and PCPC.”
“AP worked with BISD, PCPC and our project partners to adapt to each unanticipated circumstance,” said Mike Ortiz, AP’s project executive. “We implemented uncommon yet effective construction techniques to create individualistic aesthetic facilities while staying on schedule.”
AP was awarded BISD’s Haltom and Richland Middle Schools in a voter-approved bond package and called for the ground-up construction of two 178,000-SF facilities to be delivered before the start of the school year in August 2021. AP then demolished the existing school sites and installed outdoor football fields with natural grass and a running track to make good use of the land, completing this aspect in December 2021.
The PCPC project included a 67,000-SF expansion and an additional 66,982-SF of renovation work to the existing church. AP was charged with preserving the integrity of the existing church’s over-70-year-old structure while combining it with nearly two acres of directly connected acquired land. The project also involved a subterranean parking garage and expanded surface parking to increase on-site parking availability from 157 to approximately 400 total spaces. This work added needed spaces and improved facilities so PCPC can focus on its community pillars and extend the transformative presence of its religion.
AP Gulf States has been a member of TEXO since it was founded in 2009. The association seeks to build the best construction community for North and East Texas. Today, TEXO is one of the country’s largest chapters affiliated with both the National Association of Builders and Contractors and AGC.
