Assemble Case Study

Assemble Helps Satterfield & Pontikes & Fretz Construction with Cathedral Expansion and Renovation Project

Assemble Helps Win the Bid for the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral Expansion and Renovation Project

Most Assemble users know that using the software on a project can add huge value – from quantification to variance and beyond. But have you ever thought that your use of Assemble could be a selling point in winning a bid? The Joint Venture team of Satterfield & Pontikes Construction (S&P) and Fretz Construction did. And, by showing how they can track and manage a project through preconstruction and construction using Assemble – and provide the owner with all the transparent project details they desire – they beat out two other General Contractors for the job.

Project Background:

Built in 1952, the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral is a 6,086 square foot facility in Houston, Texas. Known for its intricate design and stonework, the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral is a landmark in the city. As the cathedral’s membership has grown, so has its facilities needs. The facility is currently in schematic design with Phillip Johnson + Alan Ritchie Architects on an 11,744 square foot expansion that will retain and preserve the exterior east and west ends of the building, replacing the middle section with a major addition in width and height, as well as expand the courtyard. Construction on this $12 million project is expected to begin in early 2017.
