Case studies/ recent projects:
Nolan County Jail and Sheriff’s Office- Municipal
Location: Sweetwater, TX - Contract Value: $2,451,000
In recognition of our ability to manage highly technical projects, Hill Bros. was selected as the concrete and masonry contractor for Nolan County’s new jail and sheriff office. We are responsible for a highly technical 37,000 square foot foundation with both structured and elevated slab components and a tolerance of less than ¼” movement over the life of the building. The foundation includes 198 25’ piers, reinforced concrete beams and carton forms to allow for soil expansion. When the building is complete, over 90% of the foundation is exposed or finished floor slab. Our scope also includes all of the CMU walls and exterior stone masonry veneer for the building.
Nolan County Courthouse Façade- Municipal
Location: Sweetwater, TX - Contract Value: $1,600,000
The granite cladding on this 1970’s era county courthouse started to fail when a 1-ton stone broke off the building, barely missing nearby cars and pedestrians. As a result, the exterior was removed to allow for extensive building envelope remediation. Hill Bros. is serving as the masonry contractor in charge of recladding the 32,000 square foot three story structure with mechanically anchored dimension stone. Safety is paramount as the installation requires working on six levels of scaffolding with daily wind of 20- 30 miles per hour. Close attention must also be paid to scheduling and delivery of materials due to the limited lay down area and remote project location.
Crane’s Mill Park Access Complex
Location: Canyon Lake, TX - Contract Value: $250,430
Flooding severely damaged the popular park facilities on Canyon Lake operated by the Army Corps of Engineers. As part of rebuilding the park, Hill Bros. was hired to build two new public restroom facilities and a park access complex. Our scope included all aspects of the facility except foundation, HVAC, electrical and plumbing. Since the project was funded by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA), project funds had to be used in a short timeframe to avoid expiration. Not only did our team expedite production and coordinate with trades not in our scope to meet this milestone, we accomplished this during one of the hottest summers on record.
Hill Bros. has a robust safety program in place to prevent worksite accidents. All managers are required to complete OSHA 30-hour certification. In addition, all front line supervisors, workers and subcontractors must abide by our safety program and standards. As a result of our safe work practices, Hill Bros. has not had any lost time accidents in the past five years.
The Hill Bros. Construction team has embraced sustainable building practices since the 1970's. We incorporate green building into projects because it makes sense and is the right thing to do... for our clients and their bottom line, the environment, the community we live in and the construction profession as a whole.
