Power Home Remodeling Group, Tenant Finish Out

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.

The large break area included specialty reclaimed barn wood accent walls. This project included the removal of a structural staircase connecting to the floor below as well as the repurposing of an overhead door to secure their Computer Hospital.

Treehouse Pediatrics

Treehouse Pediatrics is a kid-friendly clinic that creates welcoming, safe healthcare spaces for the little ones. When the owners decided to move to Round Rock, they chose Sabre Commercial to build their new clinic from the ground up.

With dazzling finishes and themed patient rooms, this pediatric clinic is meant to take the anxiety out of visiting the doctor. The single-story medical office building features 22 exam rooms with corresponding nurse’s stations, six doctors’ offices, a fully functional lab and two separate reception areas for both sick and well patients.

The BSA LifeStructures‘ interior and exterior design incorporates 30 different paint colors and 14 unique wall coverings—creating a whimsical space where different textures and materials converge to give each room dimension and visual pop. From shapes and stencils to hopscotch and art, strict attention was paid to making the offices accessible and appealing to our tiniest Texans.

Aristocrat Technologies

This first generation tenant finish-out for Aristocrat Technologies, a global gaming company, is located on the fourth floor the Class A Domain 1 office building. Featuring a wide variety of custom finishes including wood slat ceiling features, tin ceilings, a brick facade feature wall, and custom booths and benches throughout, this office space is designed to impress. The space was outfitted with a mixture of private offices enclosed by DIRTT wall systems as well as more traditional cubicle office systems. Floating acoustic ceiling panels with an integrated light system keep the area fresh and stylish. To make the space their own, the break room features an arcade with fully functioning pinball machines as well as Aristocrats’ own game systems.

St. Edward’s University, Chapel Renovation

This project included the partial demolition and historical renovation of the 115 year old Our Lady Queen of Peach Chapel on the active St. Edward’s University campus. The chapel is one of the oldest buildings on the St. Edward’s campus.

The added Campus Ministry Building includes a reception area, community room featuring floor to ceiling windows, conference rooms and offices for the campus staff. Architectural details include the use of MDF doors, galvanized metal fins to deregulate irregular breaks in the HardiePanel siding and detailed finishing throughout. The 65K SF Contemplative Garden upgrade brought in concrete benches as well as a circular steel seep that allows for rainwater collection off of the roof of the chapel.

All work was completed on the fully operational St. Edwards University college campus.


Image of the Atlassian from the Stairwell

This tenant finish out split over two floors in the new Colorado Tower in downtown Austin was completed within a tight construction schedule. The open concept space includes two large break rooms, a hospitality bar that serves as Atlassian’s upscale coffee house serving beer and coffee, a game room, numerous open lounge areas, bicycle storage, showers, quiet zones, and two outdoor terraces. To allow the employees to remain flexible and mobile, power/data is distributed throughout the workspace every seven feet from ceiling-mounted power sources.

The staircase, a true focal point of the office, required extensive collaboration between the steel workers and the woodworkers. Due to the extreme size of the steel stringers, the Sabre team coordinated their crane entry through a removed glass panel.

Featured in Refinery29’s “Best Offices in the United States” article, January 2016, we can’t help but agree.

The University of Texas at Austin, Student Union, Events Center Renovation

Wide Angle UT Student Union - Barstools

This 15 week project was commissioned as a way to update a very outdated student events center. The majority of the building remained occupied during construction and Sabre worked in close communication with the current tenants and the university. As we were working in an occupied space with student groups and event teams, our team worked around quiet times, and coordinated with the owner contracted furniture vendor for glass wall installation. Sabre relied on our existing key relationships with building management and occupants to ensure minimal disruption.

Both the original project schedule and budget were met. Some of the more unique items on this project included an ornamental “deer horn” glass chandelier which is one of the centerpieces of the space. Since this project completed we have been awarded many more projects with The University of Texas at Austin, proving that we leave behind very satisfied clients.
