Austin-San Antonio Corridor Construction Projects

S Watts Group’s expansion into the South Austin-San Antonio Corridor kicked off this fall with multiple construction projects in the San Marcos and New Braunfels metros along the IH-35 Corridor. Over the past several months, our team has completed numerous projects and began making significant progress on several new jobs.

J&S Leasing

J&S Leasing sits on 7 acres of property near Mustang Ridge, TX. The project included two buildings, a 7,500 SF PEMB workshop with offices and restrooms, and a 9,700 SF main office space. This main building features several unique design aspects, including skylights, a dropped ceiling, lofty ceilings, tilt walls, and more.

One of the most unique design aspects is the continuation of the exterior concrete wall into the main entrance of the building. The textured concrete wraps around the entrance and can be seen through the glass door entry. Multiple skylights located in hallways and specific office spaces provide additional natural lighting.

Briggs Equipment

Briggs Equipment is opening a new location outside San Marcos. This project consists of a tenant interior and warehouse renovation. So far the S. Watts Group team has repainted the building exterior and added new windows, new installation, electrical wiring, and overhead roller doors. 

One of the biggest challenges for the team so far was overcoming structural integrity problems with the support beams of the warehouse office. The support beams for the second floor did not run the length of the floor. Additional support beams were added by our team to ensure structural integrity.

Berry Aviation

Berry Aviation is a private aviation company headquartered at the San Marcos Regional Airport. The office space experienced unfortunate flooding that caused severe damage to a majority of the building’s drywall and made all of the flooring unusable. Understanding the client’s need to get back to work, S. Watts Group set a quick pace to turn around the space for the client. 

Watts Group’s team got on-site within three days of contact with Berry Aviation. Concise communication and dedication to the project timeline were crucial for the team and our contractors to successfully complete the project while delivering high-quality work. 

Within three weeks, our teams were able to take this once flooded space and give it the new look it deserved, allowing Berry Aviation to continue to function properly.

Project Specifications: 

  • Type: Office/Warehouse
  • Size: 31,000 sq. ft.
  • Location: San Marcos, TX
