Fish & Richardson Law Office

This Austin Energy Green Building project included the demolition and build-back of the interior areas of the 20th floor in the 111 Congress Building in Downtown Austin consisting 7 large conference rooms, all with custom millwork and furniture, as well as 35 finished offices, a breakroom, lounge and lobby. The scope included all MEP work, all finishes including, specialty ceiling replacement using 3 Form panels to simulate ‘fish’, MAARS demountable partitions, flooring, millwork and paint. Throughout the space, elegant finishes were applied from floor to ceiling, such as custom light fixtures, numerous wall coverings and quartz countertops.

All of this work was done in a densely populated area of downtown in an occupied building. This presented numerous challenges of managing material delivery, as well as coordinating any base building items with the property owner, Cousins Properties.

Pet Paradise is a single-story, ground-up retail pet boarding facility located in Kyle, 20 minutes South of Austin. The project includes complete civil and sitework improvements, foundations, framing, roofing, skin, interiors, and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing work as required.

This high-end pet resort includes day camp areas with indoor play spaces and a pool, plus a large outdoor play area with splash pads and synthetic grass. A full veterinarian office is available with exam and treatment rooms, grooming facilities, canine “VIP suites”(kennels), feline boarding rooms and multiple washing and cleaning stations. The facility also contains a full kitchen, offices and administration space, as well as living quarters for a full-time caretaker.

Pediatric Associates of Austin

This project was a renovation of 3 existing suites converted into 2 suites to relocate the Pediatric Associates of Austin Doctors Office. Sabre doubled the footprint of their existing offices giving them twice as many exam rooms than they had at their previous location. We added a reception area, refreshed the existing restrooms, added a nurses station in the rear, refreshed the doors, ceilings, all lighting and updated the existing plumbing. Murals were added to both sick and well-child waiting areas and each exam room had owner furnished themed decor installed.

Sabre was able to get involved early on in the design process to avoid any delays in materials that would affect the schedule.

This project also adhered to AEGB specifications.

Dell Seton at The University of Texas, Austin – Cath Lab

This project was a renovation of an existing second floor Cath Lab. We refreshed the space with new linoleum flooring, Zero VOC paint, Acrovyn wall protection, custom millwork, updated med-gas connections and upgraded the ceiling to accompany new structural steel supports for medical lights and Price ceiling grid system for SA/RA/lights and hose drops. STARC Wall Containment System kept this floor a sterile environment during construction. We also facilitated the installation of new equipment all while coordinating work on a busy trauma floor in Downtown Austin.

Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas, Austin – 5th Floor Expansion

This project was a finish-out of the ADA compliant 5th floor west wing and included new linoleum flooring, Acrovyn wall protection, updated med-gas connections, as well as Zero VOC paint throughout.

State of the art technology used in all aspects of construction. We used Starc Wall Systems to contain the construction site from exposing any dust and air particles into the air inside an active hospital. Infection control and prevention measures were paramount every day, we used air scrubbers and negative air machines to mitigate risk. With that, we installed insulated ducted returns in the entire wing.

In each room, we installed state of the art Hillrom Nurse Call Systems and Curbell Medical Products were used for pillow speakers, new sheetrock ceilings to accompany new structural steel supports for medical lights and Human Care Patient Lifts. Dedicated exhaust and monolithic ceilings were installed in isolation rooms, along with room pressure monitors that are tied into the hospital’s building management system that sends readings showing the current air pressure level. Additionally, Swanstone solid surfaces were used for shower surrounds. Nurses’ stations included new custom millwork, updated Swisslog system, new GE Healthcare Patient Monitoring Systems and new integral blind systems.

The Art of Anti-Aging

First generation build-out of a medspa on South Lamar Blvd. consisting of custom lighting, including a precise lighting layout to insure wall washer lighting on the owner’s custom artwork. The lobby area included a custom coffee bar and reception desk. The back of house areas included exam rooms with custom millwork, an employee break room and office.

Our early involvement in this project allowed us to get in front of price escalation and material lead times which ultimately kept the project on schedule and under budget.
