The newly constructed Fritz- Pak Corp. headquarters in Mesquite, Texas, has been honored with a 2009 Outstanding Project Summit Award for projects under $5 million for its new warehouse and office facility.
Fritz-Pak’s new facility was built to company specifications by Raymond Construction, Dallas, under the project management of Brandon Fuller. The tilt-up building incorporates many environmentally friendly features, such as the use of skylights for natural lighting, low-emissivity glass to reflect heat and reduce energy consumption, positive air-flow ventilation in the ware house for comfort, and concrete floors in the offices that reduce VOCs and allergens. All landscaping follows xeriscape techniques using drought-resistant plants, an important consideration in north Texas.
The Summit Awards are presented yearly by TEXO, the joint north Texas chapters of Associated Builders and Contractors and The Associated General Contractors of America.
