Construction Sector Growth in TX; New People and Projects at Hoar Construction

Hoar Construction announces senior staff promotions and new staff. The bigger message is about the growth in Houston's construction industry, and across the state. The release contains statistics that support AIA's most recent Architectural Billings Index, as well as recent construction spending forecasts from Reed Construction Data and ENR office construction and healthcare sectors spending.

Houston, TX, April 10, 2013 --( In the last 90 days, Hoar Construction’s Texas division has responded to 20 requests for proposals and bids for new projects, totaling $390 million in construction. Public and private sector entities in Texas have money to spend.

In just the past three weeks, Hoar has been the successful contender for five new projects across the state, totaling almost $115 million in construction. The firm was ready; in anticipation of this growth and the $140 million worth of construction Hoar already had underway, the firm has hired 10 new employees and made nine key promotions in their Texas division over the past nine months.

“Texas is definitely a land of opportunity for companies willing to work hard and prove their worth,” Rob Burton, President & CEO said. “We had immediate success in the retail and corporate sectors in Houston when we opened that office 16 years ago. We always followed the institutional sector, specifically healthcare. We started pursuing that market aggressively five years ago and it’s paid off in a big way. We’ve now completed over $180 million in healthcare work and have another $130 million or so in construction on the boards. All this is in addition to the seven commercial projects we’re doing across Texas.”

Hoar opened an office in Austin in 2011 to support the increasing work in central and west Texas. The office now employs six full time staff. Jeff Light, who leads the Austin office, has been promoted to Director of Construction. Current significant projects directed by Hoar’s Austin office include the Texas Tech University School of Nursing in Abilene, TX, a long-term acute care (LTAC) hospital in Victoria, TX and the M2 Apartments in Denver, CO.

Light is a perfect example of Hoar’s long-term strategy in Texas.

“The recession was hugely challenging for us. But we believe in our company and our vision, so we continued to invest in our people,” Brian Cook, Vice President of Hoar’s Texas division, said. “We’ve been quietly growing our business in Texas throughout the downturn, hiring key associates and promoting many of them into more significant leadership roles. The last five years have been painful, but like any good exercise program, you experience some pain if you want to get into shape – we are leaner, stronger, and honestly a whole lot smarter than we were before the recession. We know our training and preparation is benefiting our clients and partners.”

In Houston, key promotions and appointments include Brady Johnson to Director of Operations, Ray Finlayson to Senior Estimator and Scott Evans to Director of Business Development for the commercial sector.

Other promotions across Texas include:
· Warren Socha to Senior Project Manager, working on Granite Briarpark Green and Westside Surgical Center.
· David Stallman to Senior Project Manager, working on St. Peter's United Methodist Church addition in Katy and CityCentre Four.
· Walton Rader to Project Manager, working on M2 Apartments.
· Hollis Anderson to Project Manager, working on CityCentre Four.
· Sean Cagle to Assistant Project Manager, working on the Texas Tech University School of Nursing.

Hoar has also hired 10 new staffers at all experience levels. New hires include:
Superintendent: Leighton Kellett, working full time on-site at M2 Apartments.

Assist superintendents: Will Weeks, assigned to Granite Briarpark Green; Patrick Alvarez, assigned to the Victoria LTAC hospital, and Adam Lloyd and Jon Pratt, both working on M2 Apartments.

Project engineers: Nathan Kolbaba, assigned to Granite Briarpark Green; Will Azar, working on M2 Apartments; Houston Bolt, assigned to Westside Surgical Center; Chris Hoelscher, working on St. Peter’s United Methodist Church; and Chuck McPherson assigned to CityCentre Four.

Hoar continuously monitors industry trends and expects construction in Texas to remain robust.

“I meet with a dozen or so hospital executives and civic leaders every month. They’re confident the positive economic momentum is sustainable in the long term and they’re ready to make capital investments again,” Wendy Burke, Hoar’s Director of Business Development for the institutional sector in Texas, said. “With the new projects we’ve landed, 2013 is going to be a record year for Hoar. The only question is how high we will go.”

Hoar has set the precedent in the healthcare sector for construction excellence. In 2012, Hoar became the first and only contractor to achieve Endorsed Company status by the Texas Hospital Association. The endorsement is the seal of approval that a company has met THA requirements for product quality, service track record, customer satisfaction and financial stability.
