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.
