American Subcontractors Association of North Texas Honors DHL Alliance Buildings with Platinum Project Award

[ARLINGTON, TX] – The North Texas Chapter of the American Subcontractors Association recognized the exceptional work on DHL Alliance Buildings D & E by honoring Kent Companies with a Platinum Project Award. The award was presented at ASA North Texas’ 43rd Annual Awards Night on June 4 in Arlington, Texas.

DHL Alliance Buildings D & E are located in Fort Worth, Texas. General contractor ARCO National Construction awarded Kent Companies the concrete scope of work. Construction started in May 2020 and concluded in August 2020.

DHL is a best-in-class warehouse and industrial center. Kent Companies delivered the commercial concrete package for two buildings totaling more than 1.1 million square feet in slab on grade; over 250,000 square feet of tilt-wall panels, and over 926,000 square feet of concrete paving. Kent Companies’ Commercial Division fast-tracked this project by constructing both buildings simultaneously, achieving all of ARCO National’s project milestones.

“Kent Companies brings incredible manpower, capacity and craftsmanship to every project, and the Platinum Project Award recognizes our field team for extraordinary effort on DHL,” said Wes Marek, Pre-Construction Manager at Kent Companies. “We knew schedule was a priority for ARCO National, so we developed a logistics and manpower plan to deliver Buildings D & E at the same time. We’re proud of our team for making it happen.”
