ARLINGTON, TEXAS - May 18, 2009 - Bob Moore Construction has been selected to build the retail center finish-out in the 1,000,000 SF Rooms To Go Distribution Center in Houston, Texas.

In January, Bob Moore Construction was named general contractor for the distribution center's building shell following a competitive bidding process. The company's selection to complete the retail center finish-out was the result of a separate competitive bid.

The distribution center construction project is located between the cities of Katy and Brookshire, just west of Houston. The main building will be 988,000 square feet; the project includes a separate 12,000 SF trailer maintenance building. The showroom will span 81,728 SF of the main building.

Rooms To Go will act as their own developer for this project; MacGregor Associates Architects, Inc. from Atlanta, Georgia is the architect.

The new distribution center comes on the heels of more than 1.5 million square feet of successful distribution center, flex-tech center and retail facilities built by Bob Moore Construction in south / central Texas in the past several years. This project is the second distribution center Bob Moore Construction has been chosen to build for Rooms To Go; the first was an 851,000 SF building in Arlington, Texas in 2004.

"We couldn't be happier about our selection to deliver the Rooms To Go Retail Center," said Ed McGuire, Vice President of Construction for Bob Moore Construction. "The distribution center is an exciting and impressive project in and of itself. Now we can look forward to putting the finishing touches on the building's interior as well, to make this project one that Rooms To Go and Bob Moore Construction can both be proud of. We appreciate the opportunity to continue our positive working relationship with Harmon Jones, Senior Vice President of Construction and Bruce Wallick, Senior Construction Manager for Rooms To Go as well."
