Jordan & Skala Engineers opened our Houston office in 2008 and has since completed over 500 projects in this prominent and growing city. While our presence in this market is not new, we are always refreshed and grateful to see the lasting effects that our projects have on the surrounding communities and cityscape.
This leads us to be excited to announce that not one, but two, of our Houston projects, have been selected as finalists for the 2020 Landmark Awards presented by the Houston Business Journal (HBJ). According to the HBJ, these awards “recognize real estate projects that make a significant impact on Houston and help sculpt the look, feel, and image of the city.” Our two finalists meeting this distinguishable criterion are Buffalo Heights Phase I in the category of Mixed-Use and Egrets Landing in the category of Office Building/Campus.
Our Houston design team worked diligently with some of our longest-standing clients to bring these projects to life. In the case of Buffalo Heights Phase I, ZCA Residential and Midway Companies led the charge, as Jordan & Skala Engineers provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineering to this innovative, seven-story development. The project contributes an unbeatable live/workspace to the area, with a mix of apartment units, convenient office space, and an anchoring HEB grocery store at ground level, all located within a short distance from the Houston Central Business Park. For Egrets Landing, Identity Architects and the Jordan & Skala team collaborated to bring a much needed 22,000 SF office/retail space to the Sugar Land area. JSE again provided MEP design services for both the core and shell, as well as the tenant improvement phases of this revitalizing steel and glass commercial project.
We are proud of our design teams, and look forward to the HBJ’s announcement of winners, tentatively scheduled for September 24th, 2020. Jordan & Skala wishes luck to all participating firms as each of these projects, regardless of the outcome, have created a notable impact to the Houston market that will be appreciated for years to come.
