Institutional projects such as educational and healthcare facilities typically present a unique set of challenges related to current functionality, future expansion and upgrades, construction sequencing and scheduling, and the long-term performance of specialized, sensitive equipment. Arias has successfully assisted numerous school districts, universities, hospitals, and healthcare providers in meeting these challenges and providing long-lasting, sustainable facilities.
Developers of commercial projects including office, retail and hospitality facilities demand value-added consulting services without compromising project quality or integrity. More so than any other project type, these developments generally require “thinking outside of the box” in order to develop innovative and reliable foundation and pavement recommendations. Arias has completed many commercial projects by successfully recommending and implementing sound, cost-effective solutions for unfavorable site conditions.
San Antonio has often been referred to as “Military City U.S.A.” because of the numerous bases and large active-duty population located here. As such, Arias has extensive military experience at Lackland Air Force Base, Randolph Air Force Base, Fort Sam Houston, Camp Bullis, and the Former Brooks City Base and Kelly Air Force Base. In addition, Arias has successfully completed numerous projects at Laughlin Air Force Base in Del Rio and The Naval Air Station in Corpus Christi. Military projects typically present very strict design and construction tolerances and significant observation/monitoring by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) during construction. Arias is accredited by the USACE and has successfully worked with USACE Inspectors and Engineers, as well as Design and Construction Teams in the delivery of a significant number of military projects.
