The many excellent projects built by the members of the Austin Chapter of the Associated General Contractors demonstrate both their construction skills and their ability to deal effectively with the unexpected.
University of Texas Golf Club, LTD
Four separate building were constructed along the 7,154 yard par 71 course at the University of Texas Golf Club at Steiner Ranch in the Texas Hill Country by Workman Commercial Construction Services Ltd. The $1,458,000 project included construction of an outdoor pavilion, a cartbarn/clubhouse building, which contains a pro shop, snack bar and serving bar, and two course restrooms. Each building had its own unique design and structural components. It features a unique structural wood truss system, a beautiful fireplace and other high quality finishes.
The Rizzo Construction Inc. project is an addition to a custom residence located in Austin. It involved building a multilevel structure containing a swimming pool, spa, covered patio and cabana with a swim-up bar area. Custom cut stone columns and balusters were extensively used. The elevated swimming pool, which has a negative edge, employed custom-patterned Mexican mosaic tile throughout. A 75-foot-long lap lane extends from the spa through and under the covered patio area until it finally ends in the main swimming pool.
Historic Renovation of Building 45 Officers Quarters at Camp Mabry
Braun and Butler Construction, Inc. did a historic renovation of a 90-year-old building at Camp Mabry in Austin that had originally been used to house military officers. The work included demolishing all interior wall, forming and pouring foundation support piers and beams, installing structural steel beams and columns to support the second floor and framing and finishing out apartments on the first and second floors. The condition of the structure that was to remain unchanged was very poor. Careful planning was required so that its structural integrity was maintained during the interior demolition process. Despite this, the project was completed on schedule.
