FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Feb. 15, 2017

TOMBALL, Texas – Lone Star College-Creekside Center is so beautifully and uniquely designed and of such a notable quality that the Associated General Contractors of America-Houston (AGC) have identified it as a work of excellence and worthy of an award. LSC-Creekside Center is a satellite campus of Lone Star College-Tomball.

 “LSC-Creekside’s outstanding design and quality of construction is a manifestation of a strong working relationship between the college, the architects and the contractors,” said LSC-Tomball president Dr. Lee Ann Nutt.

 The Silver Award for Project Excellence (APEX) was presented to Durotech, the contractor responsible for designing LSC-Creekside, located in the Creekside Village area of The Woodlands, just off of Kuykendahl Road.  Entries for the award were judged by teams composed of owners, architects, engineers, and other representatives of the architectural, engineering, and construction industry.

 “APEX is the highest award for construction quality in Houston,” said Bob Richardson, executive director of project development for Durotech, a commercial contractor that has been serving Houston and the surrounding area for more than 25 years. “Creekside is a very complex project and a prototype college campus of the future. Lone Star College is a premier Durotech client and we are delighted that an independent panel of judges has recognized the uniqueness and exceptional quality of Lone Star College’s Creekside campus.”

 The AGC Houston created the APEX award to honor firms within the construction industry for their excellence in constructing. The award recognizes and honors firms for their excellence in construction, their valuable contributions to the community and their demonstrated commitment to skill, integrity, and responsibility. 

 “From the visioning and planning phase, through construction to the grand opening, PBK, Durotech and Lone Star College have been committed to this project and making sure it’s the best it can be,” Nutt stressed, before adding, “The APEX Award is confirmation that LSC-Creekside is an amazing facility and a true asset for the college and the community.”
