Pugh Constructors: Building For Tomorrow, Today


Historic Renovation

Perhaps the biggest challenge in historic renovations is maintaining the integrity of the building while incorporating energy-saving measures or modern enhancements. Unlike most new-construction projects, historical renovation projects often hold surprises. Pugh Constructors excels at communication and coordination which is essential to keep the project moving.

We have a passion for breathing new life into old structures. Pugh Constructors recently completed the Mission San Juan Capistrano Structural Stabilization and Interior Restoration Project. Please see more details below under the Religious and Structural headings. We completely restored the 73rd and 131st District Courtrooms in the Bexar County Courthouse back to their 1926 historic appearances while incorporating state-of-the-art computerized video and audio equipment. Pugh Constructors self-performed much of the restoration work. We did the selective demolition, drywall framing and gypboard, removal and reinstallation of the millwork, cleaning of the historic elements, and restoration of the historic door hardware including repairs to same. We restored windows to working order, repaired the historic millwork and patched and restored the original colored concrete floors.


Building Committees need to be able to trust that their general contractor will be a good steward of resources and respectful of the surrounding project area. Many have sacrificed to fund and design the vision. Pugh Constructors believes that to whom much is given, much is expected. There is no greater joy than to create that which will outlive yourself. We will provide the best value and work each day to be a good steward of your resources. We look forward to breaking ground together.

Structural Repairs

We recently completed the Mission San Juan Capistrano Structrual Stabilization and Interior Restoration Project. Phase I consisted of excavating and horizontal band stitching along the bottom of the walls. Belled piers, corbels and grade beams were installed. Structural stitching was installed in above-grade selected areas. Interior an exterior walls were re-pointed and received grout injection in selected areas. All buttresses were removed and the existing masonry was repaired. A water-proof membrane was also installed.

Pugh Constructors has been called upon by numerous structural engineers over the years to help solve both emergency repairs and distressed structural issues. They trust our abilities and willingness to solve the difficult problems. Work has included structural foundation issues, deteriorated steel and concrete members, impact damage and even original design problems. Since we have renovated many buildings, we know where the problems will develop, how to uncover them, and most importantly, how to fix them. Structural repair is not our leading line of work, but we offer this as a service to the many design professionals that call upon our expertise and advice.
