Jan 10, 2019

We are excited to announce that Sabre Commercial has been selected as the winner of three Outstanding Construction Awards as presented by the Austin Chapter of the Associated General Contractors (AGC). Projects are judged on the difficulty of construction; unusual construction techniques involved; final appearance and quality of the finished product; as well as timeliness of completion.

Vida Capital + Ovation Partners, located in the Class A Shoal Creek Walk, received the Interior Finish Out Award for projects valued between $500,000 and $2 Million.

This first generation interior finish out was completed on the fourteenth floor of Shoal Creek Walk building in downtown Austin. The completed space includes two separate offices of sister companies as well as the common elevator lobby and corridor between. Both offices were uniquely designed with each featuring high end finishes, lighting packages, and design elements throughout. Each tenant had its own distinctive reception area, break room and conference room as well as a mixture of executive style individual offices and open office space.

This project was completed while the base building was still under construction and our team was able to complete work with minimal disruption despite extremely limited elevator access. Both offices were suited to comply with the AEGB 2-Star rated building.


The University of Texas at Austin, School of Architecture 5th + 6th Floor renovation, located in Austin, Texas, received the Education Award for projects valued up to $10 Million. 

This project included the complete remodel of the fifth and sixth floors at the UT School of Architecture. The fifth floor included the creation of three classrooms and common area. Each classroom featured state of the art presentation equipment as well as fully programmable and multi-functional light fixtures. In the common area, sliding pivot panels serve as a pin-up gallery for the architecture and design students. The sixth floor was renovated to create functional open office space for staff.

As with most University projects, construction was within an occupied building and scheduling occurred around class schedules and quiet times.

Power Home Remodeling Group received the Industrial/Warehouse project Award for projects valued up to $5 Million.

This 28,000 square foot tenant finish out for Power Homes Remodeling Group (PHRG) is located at the Met Center, Office 12. The first generation finish out included both office space and their warehouse. With a heavy emphasis on having a flexible space, over half of the office floor plan is allocated to training rooms, break areas, and open office. The remainder of the office includes glass enclosed private offices and conference rooms.

The reception area includes a custom 16 foot curved wood-slat wall enveloped in steel. Full height custom graphic walls were affixed throughout the space to further PHRG’s team branding and values.

This gorgeous office/warehouse finish out was delivered on time and within budget. The finished product is visually arresting and highly user friendly, with plenty of wide open spaces.
