Viahart Toy Company Warehouse

This project consisted of the ground-up construction of a 24,750 SF distribution warehouse for the Viahart Toy Company. Mueller Inc. provided the pre-engineered metal building, Malin provided and installed 175 twenty-two by eight feet metal racks to stock the various inbound and outbound shipments. The interior construction also included a pre-assembled 2-story Panel Built Inc. modular office to accommodate restroom facilities and a second-story display room. This project also included extensive site and utility work. This six acre property is prepared to receive 4 additional warehouses since utilities were installed for the entire plot.

Fierce Whiskers Distillery

Fierce Whiskers Distillery was the ground-up, new construction of a 7,812-SF distillery building, a 5,541-SF five-story rickhouse, and all associated site work.

The distillery can boast being “grain to glass” as the whiskey is produced from an all in-house process at the state-of-the-art sustainable production facility. In addition to the buildings, Sabre was responsible for the installation of owner-provided equipment including but not limited to a still, fermenters, grain silos, chilled water systems, and the copper pot still from renowned Vendome Copper and Brass Works out of Louisville.

Along the south wall of the distillery, Sabre installed multiple glass garage doors that lead to an outdoor patio. The scope also features a tasting room accented with custom wood finishes.

McCoy’s Door Manufacturing Facility

McCoy’s Door Manufacturing Facility is located in New Braunfels, Texas, and sits on 9.67 acres. This design-build project includes renovations to the existing warehouse and office space finish-out to repurpose the existing building to create a door assembly and distribution plant. A concrete paving area was added to accommodate three new loading dock bays. The existing paved asphalt at the front of the building was repaired and the parking lot re-striped as well.

Renovating the existing 102,940 SF (99,342 SF Post Demo) warehouse for McCoy’s build-out consisted of selective structure demolition to remove steel leveling plates and scales, middle warehouse offices, a chilled water system, exterior silos, overhead cranes, and previous electrical and mechanical systems.

Deep Eddy, Heaven Hill Distillery

When Deep Eddy Vodka outgrew their production facilities in Dripping Springs, they worked with our team to convert a 120,000 square foot empty warehouse in Buda to suit their needs. This project included a 12,000 square foot interior remodel to create office space as well as a taste testing lab and bar. In addition to office space, the building now includes their bottling lines and warehouse space. Upgrades to the process mechanical piping were required to allow for the installation of multiple stills as well as the boilers and chillers required to control the temperature. Building upgrades included the reroofing, insulation, and addition of fire sprinklers.

CHiP Semiconductor

Construction of CHiP Semiconductor’s new forty thousand square foot office, warehouse and laboratory was delivered under the design-build model. As the design build manager, Sabre Commercial managed the site planning, schematic design, design development, construction documentation and limited construction administration for the development. The building is composed of a concrete tilt-up shell with an internal steel framed structure.

2017 – Austin AGC Outstanding Construction Award Winning Project

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.

ArthroCare CMC Manufacturing Laboratory

ArthroCare is a repeat client whom we have worked for in many previous projects including their corporate offices, manufacturing plant, and multiple laboratories. The scope for this particular project included the construction of ArthroCare’s new 21,050 square foot CMC (carboxymethylcellulose) production facility in South Austin. The finished space included office area, a break room, restrooms, clean rooms, packaging, warehouse and new process lab to manufacture the CMC.

Construction was completed in a tight schedule of only four and a half months.  ArthroCare already had orders for the material they were going to be producing at the facility which made meeting the schedule a must. The project team was able to make that happen. Sabre not only completed this project within the schedule, but under budget.

PODS Warehouse

The 54,450 square foot, single story facility constructed in San Marcos, Texas was built as a distribution and storage warehouse for PODS containers. The Design-Build project was built with concrete tilt wall construction with light weight open web steel joists supporting an insulated single ply roof. The flooring was built to withstand the 30 ton rated forklift used to move the storage containers around within the building during operation.

In addition to the warehouse, the City of San Marcos required the owner to double the width of Leah Avenue from Clovis Barker Road to the driveway entrance, approximately one quarter mile. This widening included all new storm drain inlets to match those on the other side along with sidewalk and signage. This work was rolled into Sabre’s construction contract.

2015 – Austin AGC Outstanding Construction Award Winning Project

TechSpace – Austin

This 28,000 square foot coworking office space was constructed on the first and fourth floors of the operational San Jacinto Center in downtown Austin. The first floor includes coworking space, conference rooms, lounge areas and kitchen space. The fourth floor space includes private offices, their “Killer Conference Room” as well as more lounge area and kitchen space. The space is equipped with high end finishes throughout, featuring 25-foot-high ceilings with wall to wall windows, a Bicycle Feature Wall, reclaimed wood feature wall, hanging wood trellis ceilings in common areas, mosaic tile feature wall, private phone booths, huddle rooms, custom artisan millwork made from wood and hot rolled steel, and specialty light fixtures throughout. This project was completed within a tight construction schedule, with occupancy required before SXSW 2016.
