The newly constructed Fritz-Pak Corporation headquarters in Mesquite, Texas has been honored with the 2009 Outstanding Project Summit Award for projects under $5 million for its new Industrial Warehouse / Office Facility.
The Summit Awards are presented yearly by TEXO, the joint North Texas chapters of Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) and The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). There were 88 entries for consideration. The winner was chosen by a panel of independent judges from the construction and construction design industries, from universities and from OSHA. There will be an awards presentation banquet in the fall.
Fritz-Pak’s new facility was built to our specifications by Raymond Construction of Dallas. The project is a tilt-up concrete building incorporating many environmentally friendly features such as the use of skylights for natural lighting, Low-E glass to reflect heat and reduce energy consumption, positive air flow ventilation in the warehouse for comfort, concrete floors in the offices, which reduce VOCs and allergens. All landscaping follows xeriscape techniques using drought resistant plants, an important environmental consideration in North Texas.
We are especially pleased to receive this honor because it reinforces our corporate commitment to environmental responsibility, both in the products we make, and the way we manufacture them. Come visit us in Mesquite (near Dallas)!
Fritz-Pak Corporation is a member of the American Concrete Institute, the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association, the American Society of Concrete Contractors, including the Decorative Concrete Council, the American Concrete Pumping Association, and the International Packaged Concrete Manufacturer’s Association
