Construction industry software developer, HCSS, announced it has broken ground on a new building and parking structure at its Sugar Land, Texas, campus. The two-story, approximately 56,000-square foot office building will be the third on the 12-acre corporate headquarters, which HCSS has inhabited since 2010.
The new building will bring approximately 200 new jobs and a $12 million capital investment in real and personal property to the suburb southwest of Houston. The site also includes the original 42,000 square foot facility completed in 2010 and an almost-16,000 square foot building, complete with two-story climbing net and slide, finished in 2015.
“We are excited to call Sugar Land home and to bring hundreds of new jobs to the area,” said HCSS Vice President of Strategic Initiatives and Customers Solutions Tom Webb. “The addition of this new building to our campus will both allow us to grow as well as add even more elements to help our employees feel connected, strengthening our customer service culture.”
HCSS prides itself on providing a great life for all employees, with wellness benefits like an onsite workout facility, running and walking tracks, and healthy snacks provided for all employees and visitors. The new building will expand on this philosophy with an additional workout room and an indoor racquetball court.
Other amenities will include a full kitchen, multiple lounge areas, and an entertainment room, as well as a three-level parking garage with an approximately 280-vehicle capacity.
The building was designed by Studio RED Architects and is being constructed by Rosenberger Construction. Site work was done by MSC Earthworks.
HCSS has grown to more than 300 employees and is constantly expanding its product and customer base, which largely consists of infrastructure, heavy/highway, and utility contractors — those who build roads, bridges, dams, airports, and other structures. With this expansion, the company hopes to grow a new segment of its business and double the employee base yet again, with sales and marketing the first to move into the new building in 2020. Additional development personnel will move in at a later date, and the company plans to eventually grow to a five-building campus.
