We understand the necessities behind these industries. These types of businesses make the greatest impact on their communities, and we know that we do greatly contributes to their purpose.

HM Completes Massive Sanitas Katy Location in 10 ½ Weeks

On Thursday, Oct. 10, Sanitas hosted its grand opening in Katy. The new 16,000-square-foot location is part of an ongoing multi-national breakthrough in healthcare services. The Keralty Company has combined its efforts stateside with Blue Cross Blue Shield to provide accessible healthcare across all socio-economic demographics. Although the breakthrough has been in the planning, the task came in the building.

How We Build Out Medical, Dental and Optical Practices

Houston is known for its Medical Center. But it’s also known for its numerous dental clinics, as well as The University of Texas Dentistry School at Houston. Interestingly enough, optometry centers are on the rise in Houston. Luckily for all three of these industries, HM General Contractors specialize in building out these three types of facilities.

A Complete Look at the Completed Signature Eye Center Project

We have a high return client percentage and we see that as a testament to a number of qualities we’ve embraced at our design and build firm. A few of those qualities are communication, quality product, and timeliness.

One of our recent projects was Dr. Laura Koehler’s Signature Eye Center in League City. We had completed her first optical center a number of years ago, and with the growth of her business, she was in need of a new and much larger facility.

We couldn’t wait to get started. We wrote an article on the construction and completion of the project in July. We recently took photos of the interior with its furnished offices, optical rooms, lobby, and more. Let’s go through the interior of the Signature Eye Center with a visual tour.

The Lobby of the Vision Center

One of the design aspects we always enjoy coming up is the front desk. That is typically the first thing visitors to your business will see, and so we wanted to create something stunning. When you walk into this lobby, you are met with three distinct materials: wood, marble, and brick. These three are very distinct, yet they came together very nicely. The lights above (as well as throughout) were a nice touch.

When it comes to optometry centers, it’s all about the eyewear displays. Regardless of the size of the office, our designers and builders are able to put together various display areas for your frames. Just check out how this stylish eyewear was displayed.

Hallway, Offices, and Rooms

The colors we used were soft and natural, like the trim and doors. The hallway, the offices, and the rooms provide a nice feel to it. The canned lighting and lighting fixtures provide excellent lighting to match inviting entrance.


We transformed wall space to establish a more open feel by using glass instead of sheetrock. Along with that, the size of the facility allowed us to create a unique office space for Dr. Koehler.


We were also able to build a welcoming break room. Often these areas are small and cramped. But we were able to make it spacious and comfortable for everyone working at Signature Eye Center.

Design, Build...and Read?: An Optical Construction Project

One of our recently completed projects was for De’ Cordova Eyewear near Lake Houston. Dr. Kerri-Ann Hodges wanted a vision center that brought her vision to life. Part of that vision was making people’s lives better providing clear sight and enlightening minds. Hence the slogan: Enlightening Eyes.
