Construction is underway on a new corporate headquarters for the Willbanks family of companies to be located at 735 Buffalo Run in the Lake View Business Park (a Trammel Crow development 1 block south of the south Sam Houston Parkway at Fondren).
Willbanks is purchasing the largest of 3 buildings being developed and constructed by Adkisson Development. They will consolidate Houston operations currently located on Stillwell St. and Northdale St. The new facility will support the companies’ recent growth by doubling its square footage in Houston. Completion is scheduled for mid-2018 and will be home to Willbanks and Associates Inc., Willbanks Contractor Support LLC, and Boiler Management Ltd. (The Teal System).
When the new 35,000-square foot tilt wall structure opens, it will provide the workspace for all Houston based office, warehouse, shop employees, and local field staff. The office is designed in anticipation of continued growth and will easily accommodate a 50% expansion of staff. The facility will include approximately 15,000 feet of office, classroom and demonstration-lab space with an additional 20,000 feet designated to a high bay warehouse and fabrication shop. The company plans to use the new classroom and lab space to host continuing education and training for the plumbing and HVAC industry.
The new headquarters will support the companies’ satellite operations in Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Atlanta, and Denver.
