Summary of Construction

When you ask Mike Laur, Director of Construction for Texas Roadhouse, about the job we do for his company, he doesn’t beat around the bush. “They know our buildings as well as we do,” he says candidly. “Their team actually saves us money, because they know what we expect. Without their expertise, we’d have to hire a guy to visit the site every week. But I trust them.”

We’ve built tons of concepts for Mike. Some of our Superintendents build three of these things a year, and have built over a dozen total. Our team has always done everything in our power to get it done right, on time, and on budget for Texas Roadhouse. Our belief in honoring commitments and building relationships – not just buildings – is one of the reason we’ve kept their business for so long. 

This Florida build – like so many of the others – was a wood-framed construction, starting with a conventional slab on a grade. The code here required additional fire and wind rating specifications, which we’re used to from other builds in the area. The exterior finishes include cedar siding, and black integral concrete to create that “roadhouse” environment. We installed the maintenance-friendly Silikal floors in the kitchen, because hey, when you’re tossing peanuts like they do, cleanup needs to be as easy as possible. 

“Buffalo Construction, Inc. has been an outstanding partner since day one. They’re always available to hear our needs, and know what it takes to ensure that Texas Roadhouse is satisfied. They understand the value of long-term relationships and valued-partner needs. You can count on Buffalo to get it done on time, and on budget, and be a great partner even after the job is done.”
