Banking on Bautex Block: New Projects Starting in Rio Grande Valley, Austin

In addition to the projects currently underway in Houston and Austin, Bautex Systems is deliv­er­ing Bautex Block to several new projects breaking ground in the Greater Austin-area and the Rio Grande Valley.

The architect for Verde Go, a new con­ve­nience store brand that will sell Valero gasoline, has chosen Bautex Block for the ren­o­va­tion of an existing 2,000 sq. ft. gas station and con­ve­nience store located in north Austin. Work is set to begin this summer. Addi­tion­al­ly, Verde Go will soon begin con­struc­tion of a new 5,000 sq. ft. con­ve­nience store gas station with a sandwich shop located in south Austin.

Archi­tects specified Bautex Wall Systems to meet higher standards for energy effi­cien­cy and building per­for­mance as pro­scribed by 2015 IECC building energy codes, which are effective for all new con­struc­tion in Texas on November 1, 2016. Building with Bautex Block lets the owners of Verde Go stay with a more durable concrete or masonry con­struc­tion instead of light gauge steel framing, and it does so at a com­pet­i­tive cost. 

Later in summer 2016, a project team begins work on an expansion of a Rio Grande Valley Credit Union located in Harlingen. This new office building is Bautex Systems’ first project to be con­struct­ed in the Valley.
