The team, which works throughout the Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia market, really liked that and adopted “Setting the Pace” as its motto from then on out. By living up to that motto, Southland Concrete has become recognized as a leader in concrete subcontracting, demonstrated by ongoing repeat business.

One of the hallmarks of a successful contractor is the ability to create strong, long-lasting relationships with clients, and that’s exactly what Houston-based W. S. Bellows Construction Corporation has developed with Texas Children’s Hospital. For more than 27 years, W. S. Bellows has maintained a consistent presence on the hospital’s campus with numerous high-profile projects such as the West Tower and Vertical Expansion, Feigin Center and Vertical Expansion, Clinical Care Center, and most recently, the Pavilion for Women.

W. S. Bellows Vice President Tommy Kubin says the company’s relationship with Texas Children’s is emblematic of Bellows’ high-quality work and the way it conducts business. “We do a lot of repeat work for our clients and it’s a testament to not only our building capabilities but our client service as well” he says. “Everyone remembers the last job you did for them and we always strive to leave a positive lasting impression.”
