  2. Mission Constructors is one of Houston's famed construction companies founded in 1978. They have done a lot of projects in the Houston area, but one of the projects that stands out is the Museo Plaza on Fannin Street. I wonder when the 60 year old building at 3818 Buffalo Speedway will be demolished? The current tenant is Mission Constructors. They actually might own the building? I often drive by and think of it as being out of place and surrounded by high rises. Website: https://missionconstructors.com/
  3. Forgive me and please move if this is not the right place. My husband had the pleasure of working with Tom Bellows and is stunned - he was only 53. Complete obituary in today's Chronicle.

  7. Until recently I did not know Hines had a connection with Harvey Builders. Maybe that's why you often see Harvey build Hines projects. Sometimes referred to as D.E. Harvey Builders, Harvey-Cleary Builders, etc. https://www.harveycleary.com/ A history of logos.
  8. Hines has a topic, so I figured Hanover deserves one too Hanover has been my favorite lately, as you might notice. https://www.hanoverco.com/
  9. For as long as I can remember Williams Brothers Construction has been around ripping up Houston. What is their story? I would assume construction projects in the city would constantly go up for bid. However that WB logo is commonplace and it seems so for decades. Are they very good or is it like the mafia and the mayor might end up with a horse head in his bed?
