Going Above and Beyond at Del Valle ISD

October 20, 2021

At American Constructors, we always aim to go the extra mile for our clients, providing innovative, thoughtful solutions throughout every step of the construction process.

We recently had the opportunity to help resolve an emergency situation at Del Valle High School — a project American Constructors did not build nor is actively working on. After receiving reports of a water line break that was quickly filling up a crawl space, American Constructors arrived on-site within 30 minutes and were able to shut off the main fire line that was leaking badly.

We quickly determined the extent of the damaged piping, which required removal of several sections of concrete outside the building, and included not only the 8” sprinkler main, but additional plumbing and drainage piping in the crawl space.

By Saturday, October 22, all new lines and the new sprinkler system were successfully in place. All repairs were completed on October 26.

“This was an incredible response by American Constructors and Allied Underground,” said Steven Alves, Executive Director of Operations for Del Valle ISD. We’re so grateful to their team for their quick thinking and effective solutions. They were able to safely and efficiently return our campus to regular operations and had the foresight to address future potential issues before they arose. They are true partners to the district and continue to go above and beyond to support our needs.”

We want to recognize project manager Cody Lester, Allied Underground, and the entire team who worked on these repairs — they truly embody American Constructors’ values and heart for service. We are proud to be partners of Del Valle ISD and look forward to unveiling two of the district’s new elementary schools in Fall 2022.
