As many other commercial construction firms struggled through the recent economic downturn, Henthorn Commercial Construction’s business grew by nearly 300 percent. The company has become the premier commercial construction company in west Texas and continues to grow year after year.
Serving West Texas for over 20 years
For more than 20 years, Henthorn Commercial Construction has provided commercial construction services throughout west Texas. Based in Lubbock, the company is locally owned by father and son team Mike Henthorn and Tyler Henthorn. The Henthorn family has decades of experience in the commercial construction industry.
Henthorn Commercial specializes in multi-million dollar construction and remodeling projects. The company offers a full suite of construction services including construction management, new building construction, and interior and exterior remodeling, as well as site selection and design services offered through Henthorn Commercial Development, LLC.
Although Henthorn Commercial’s core team is small, the company’s staff boasts more than 60 years of combined experience in commercial construction. The company also employs an in-house team of skilled, experienced tradesmen and laborers to self-perform construction tasks including carpentry, ironwork, millwork, framing and drywall, and more. By self-performing these functions, the company saves both money and time for its clients.
Henthorn partners with trusted subcontractors to complete all other aspects of construction. By treating subcontractors and vendors as strategic partners, Henthorn ensures high quality work and efficiency on every project it undertakes.
Henthorn Commercial’s success is built on its commitment to providing outstanding quality of work on every project. “Our ultimate goal is to build remarkable structures and respectable client relationships that stand the test of time,” the company’s website states. Company owners Mike and Tyler Henthorn are actively involved in projects, and project managers visit job sites almost every day. By working closely with clients, architects, engineers, and other professionals involved in each project, Henthorn Commercial provides an exceptional client experience and excellent results on each job it undertakes.
The company has earned a rating of A+ from the Better Business Bureau due to its track record of client satisfaction, and has won local awards including the West Texas Associated General Contractors of America chapter’s 2015 Safety Award.
The company’s relationship-focused strategy has proven highly successful, as its volume of business has grown year after year. During the Great Recession, as the entire construction industry struggled, Henthorn Commercial thrived. In fact, the company’s growth tripled from 2009 to 2010, and doubled in the years that followed.
A diverse portfolio
Henthorn Commercial’s portfolio demonstrates the company’s commitment to quality and craftsmanship in every job it completes. The company’s website showcases its outstanding work on a variety of building and remodeling projects, including medical facilities, retail stores and restaurants, financial institutions, houses of worship, hotels, and multifamily residential developments.
Henthorn Commercial has experience in remodeling and renovation of medical facilities. The company recently performed renovations for Seminole Memorial Hospital. The project included a renovation of the hospital’s fitness center, construction of new dining and pantry facilities, updates to a clinic lobby, and complete interior remodeling of the clinic including patient rooms, nurse stations, restrooms, a lobby, and offices. The project also included the installation of new HVAC, plumbing, and electrical systems. Additionally, Henthorn Commercial also performed renovations for the McCombs clinic in Lubbock, transforming a former retail space into a medical facility.
In 2016, Henthorn completed work on the Esplanade Shopping Center, a new commercial development in West Lubbock. The Esplanade includes more than 100,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space designed with beautiful Spanish Mission style architecture. Prior to the Esplanade project, Henthorn Commercial completed tenant finish-out work on the Lubbock franchise location of La Madeleine Country French Café. Henthorn created a warm, rustic interior in the 6,892 square foot restaurant, which features large wooden beams and a stone fireplace.
Henthorn Commercial performed a complete interior remodel of the American Bank of Commerce in Lubbock, which included new offices, teller stations, restrooms, and more. The bank remained open during renovations, which were conducted in three phases to ensure minimal interruption to the bank’s operations. Henthorn simultaneously remodeled the bank’s Wolfforth, Texas, branch to create a new interior identical to that of the Lubbock branch.
Henthorn also specializes in construction and remodeling for houses of worship. The company was contracted by Lakeridge United Methodist Church to construct a 5,700 square foot chapel attached to the existing church building. The finished chapel features a vaulted ceiling, stained glass windows, and a brick exterior.
In another notable project, La Quinta Inn and Suites in Lubbock contracted with Henthorn to construct a two-story addition connected to its existing hotel building. The addition includes 42 guest rooms. And in 2013, Henthorn constructed the Anatole at City View Apartments, a multifamily living complex featuring more than 200 apartments along with a swimming pool, a movie theater, and an outdoor entertainment area.
Henthorn Commercial has also performed work on office buildings, schools, and more. Currently, the company is working on the construction of Adventure Park Lubbock. Scheduled to open in late 2017, Adventure Park will feature a two-story laser tag facility, bowling lanes, an arcade, party rooms, a full service restaurant, and more.
The Lubbock area is experiencing continual growth, with the city’s population recently surpassing 250,000 people, according to data recently published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As the demand for commercial construction in Lubbock increases, Henthorn Commercial will continue to grow and expand its business.
With a reputation for outstanding quality and craftsmanship and a portfolio of excellent work, Henthorn Commercial is the general contractor of choice for commercial construction projects throughout West Texas.
