Kent Companies Texas Named one of DFW’s Best & Brightest Places to Work

Congratulations to the entire Kent Family in Texas. For the third year in a row, Kent Companies was named one of Dallas/Fort Worth’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For by the National Association for Business Resources.

The competition evaluates contenders on two fronts. First, our organization was evaluated on compensation, benefits, employee enrichment, education, recruitment, communication, diversity, community initiatives and strategic company performance. Second, confidential employee surveys collected candid feedback from our team.

Kent Companies will be recognized at an awards gala in January 2019. We’ll use the results of our assessment report to continue to invest in resources that make Kent Companies a great place to build a lifelong career.


Kent Companies Texas – Commercial Division

General Contractor: Ridgemont Commercial Construction

Rubicon is a three-story 70,000 square foot medical office building situated in Irving’s Las Colinas area. The property is designed to provide an epicenter of healthcare services for Irving residents. The building is already partially leased by the UT Southwestern healthcare system and Clinical Pathologies Labs.

General Contractor Ridgemont Commercial Construction turned to Kent Companies for the comprehensive concrete scope of work including foundations, grade beams, slab on grade, tilt-wall panels, slab on metal deck, paving and site concrete.

Rubicon MOB – By the Numbers:

  • 32,000 gross SF tilt wall panels
  • 23,100 SF mud slab
  • Over 100,000 SF paving
  • 65,800+ SF slab on metal deck

Ridgemont’s Senior Superintendent shared these kudos for Thomas, Francisco and the entire team:

I want to express my gratitude for how Kent Companies is performing on this project so far…Francisco Diaz has done a great job and has been an excellent team member. He has worked diligently to help out through all the weather delays. He has been attentive to all safety and quality issues and has been focused and responsive. I’m very pleased with what he has done. Thomas Casillas has been a good addition as well. He works with Francisco and me to make sure we have the manpower and equipment needed to get back on track. The hours spent, the dedication to keep the site de-watered, parking lot and streets free of mud and stabilizing site access has been a great effort. It is very much appreciated, and we would not be where we are now without this effort. Keep up the good work Kent Companies!
