Expansion: The Kent Street Project

The City of Bryan's Kent Street Project focused on extending the street from Memorial Drive to Broadmoore Street, both of which are major collectors near the St. Joseph Medical Center. In order to increase fluidity of traffic to and from the medical center and around that area, Kent Street was elongated to provide a connection between the roads. The construction cost of the project totaled about $450,000.00. The project included approx. 1,200 LF of concrete roadway, a new 8" sidewalk for the high pedestrian traffic near the hospital. Drainage facilities included a dual 6' x 8' box culvert, approx. 400' long and approx. 800 LF of waterline. The top of the box culvert was used as the roadway p

Bridging the Gap for A&M TEEX

The TEEX Brayton Fire Training Field is a 297 acre facility located near Texas A&M University campus in College Station, Texas. This facility hosts more than 45,000 emergency responders from across the U.S. and over 45 countries every year. Due to the high volume of activity in this area, the safety of not only the facility itself, but the bridges and roadways leading to it is crucial. Located on the 297 acre grounds was a single lane bridge that ran over White Creek. The turning radii onto the bridge was too small, which resulted in guardrail damage. In order to prevent further damage and open up a second lane for traffic, TAMU requested that a second bridge be constructed next to the old.

Restore or Rebuild: Structural Damages After a Natural Disaster

As cities begin to estimate the total destruction to their communities, common structural damages identified after a natural disaster include roadways, water plants, emergency power systems, bridges and storm sewer systems. We have assisted in the reconstruction of over 250 roads including curbed, urban, rural and open ditch, with erosion controls added such as rock rubble and concrete slope paving. In towns such as Hemphill, Texas, we were able to design and construct a new replacement water tank after the destruction of their original 500,000 gallon ground storage tank as seen to the right. Water infrastructure repair has also included the reconstruction or expansion of wastewater treatmen

Goodbye Age-Old Stalls, Hello Aria Partitions

We are all familiar with the age-old bathroom stalls that provide little privacy to the user. With large gaps between the door and panels, doors that do not come within a foot of the floor and low durability, most people avoid using public restroom stalls at all costs. As a firm that deals with many public structures such as schools and city buildings, privacy as well as aesthetic is important. Thus, in order to provide the best for our clients, we hosted Randy Box with Southwest Architectural Sales earlier this year for a lunch and learn regarding privacy in today's public restrooms. Mr. Box's presentation focused on the use of Scranton products such as Aria Partitions to replace the antiqu
