and ER at an international airport. In November 2017, work began on
an 8,200-square-foot freestanding emergency center and urgent care
facility on 1.4 acres of land at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
The facility will house a full-service emergency room as well
as a separate urgent care area. Code 3 Construction's architectural
and engineering partners have designed the foundation system to
deal with the challenging north Texas soil conditions, while also
handling the many challenges that arrive with any first-of-a-kind
construction. Serving the needs of more than 60,000 airport-based
and airline employees on-site every day and more than 60 million
passengers traveling through the airport every year, this state-ofthe-art facility is roughly 50 percent complete and is anticipated to
open later this year, Thompson says.
Code 3 Construction assists the facilities it builds through a
department within the company, Code 3 Service and Maintenance.
The company's services include warranty management, equipment
maintenance and landscaping. Code 3 Service and Maintenance has
ongoing service agreements with seven Code 3 emergency room and
urgent care facilities and is looking to expand to other clients.
Key to Code 3 Construction's continued success is ensuring
longevity through repeat and referral business achieved through
exceptional customer satisfaction in all areas including timeliness,
attention to detail and service-minded attitudes.
In a recent job, Code 3 Construction completed the tenant finish-out for a 4,700-square-foot facility. It was designed to deliver
high-quality care and superior patient outcomes. Code 3 Construction was brought into this project via a referral from one of its trusted partners who clearly understood the need for high-quality work
for a sophisticated and detail-oriented client. "Projects like this have
earned our reputation as the contractor of choice for those who want
the best," Thompson says. "We take pride in our work and believe
such references and referrals are a testament to our results."
Code 3 Construction recently worked with Key Whitman Eye Center, which had outgrown its existing suite and needed to expand. The
project team understood the complexities of maintaining operations
during the construction process and expertly conceived a multiphase schedule that allowed the client's business operations to
continue throughout. Much of the work had to be completed outside
of normal business hours to ensure the client was able to maintain
function. "Flexibility as well as creativity in these situations are the
hallmarks of the expertise of our company," de Moor says.
Code 3 Construction is continually building the team of designers,
architects, engineers and tradesmen working on its projects. "The
quality of our subcontractors is directly related to the quality of our
builds which is why we are so selective when it comes to assembling
our team," the company says. "Big D Drywall is one such company
that shares our ideals, and we have built a strong and ongoing relationship with this outstanding company."
an emergency room facility when Harvey passed directly over both
facilities located in Rockport, Texas.
"We were less than a mile inland, where much of the city was critically damaged, if not totally destroyed," Thompson says. "Both of our
facilities stood strong in the face of the storm with minimal damage."
Following the storm, Code 3 Construction set up temporary
medical facilities on location with backup generators. "Code 3 was
the only medical facility operable in the 50-mile radius between
Rockport and Corpus Christi (Texas)."
The permanent Code 3 facilities were completed soon afterward
and continue to serve recovery efforts in Rockport. "We are proud
to say that our facilities are built to withstand a direct hit from a
Category 4 hurricane," Thompson says.
Code 3 Construction is always growing its knowledge base and technical capabilities. This includes implementing the Procore project
management platform throughout its operations. "The technology
we use to perform takeoffs, estimating, bids and project management is changing all the time," Thompson says. "We are constantly
educating ourselves to keep up with those changes."
The company's embrace of new methods, as well as its rapidly
growing project and subcontractor base, will help it grow. "Our goal
is to continue to expand and take care of our employees," Thompson
says. "This is how we will maintain the highest levels of integrity."
Two of Code 3 Construction's latest projects withstood the force
of Hurricane Harvey last August. The company had completed a
general practice and allergy clinic and was nearing completion of
