[DALLAS, TX] – The American Subcontractors Association – North Texas Chapter recognized Kent Companies Texas with two awards at the annual awards celebration on June 7, 2018. The Multi-Family Division received a Platinum Project Award for Lakeside DFW in the $8-$10 million category, and the team earned a Safety Award of Excellence in Division II.
Lakeside DFW encompassed three projects on one job site: Nexus Lakeside, Overture Flower Mound and Lakeside Parkway in Flower Mound, Texas. Kent Companies’ scope of work included concrete foundations, slabs on grade, post-tensioned foundations, cast in place podium decks, site concrete and road paving. Kent Companies’ daily manpower often surged to over 70 personnel per day on average, at times hitting 90 or more concrete professionals on site. Greystar was the general contractor for the project.
Angel Alvarez, Vice President of Multi-Family Operations, shared, “Our field leadership team truly delivered on this project. Senior General Superintendent Victor Freeman and Superintendent Felix Lopez developed a strategic plan to meet the manpower required for this project.
They worked with Alfredo Pedroza and multiple assistant superintendents to expand the structure and reach of field leadership across three demanding projects. Safety, communication and quality control were of the utmost importance as we deployed close to 100 professionals on site for peak days.”
Carson Greenlee, Kent Companies Safety Coordinator, accepted the Safety Award of Excellence. Kent Companies Texas consistently reduced its EMR over the past three years as total employee hours exceeded one million hours annually. Greenlee shared, “Safety is our first priority. We deliver on our promise with training, safety stand-downs and increased presence in the field. Our work in this area is never complete.”
