Louis Spaw and Frank Glass first met at Rice University in the late 1930s. Fifteen years later, the pair crossed paths once again and started their own construction company - SpawGlass. Completed in 1953, SpawGlass’s first project was a $1,080.18 enclosure of a porch belonging to the organist of Louis Spaw’s church. Now, 61 years later, SpawGlass’s revenue exceeds $475 million per year.
While many things have changed over the past 61 years, the company’s commitment to providing the highest standards of service and quality remains the same. We are driven to achieve our mission to provide our clients with the absolute best construction experience, resulting in long-term relationships with clients, architects and specialty contractors.
Being 100 percent employee-owned is a way of life at SpawGlass. With ownership extending from our craftspeople to our chief executive officer, we have approximately 300 owners. Our team members are dedicated to quality work they can be proud of because it’s not only their job, it’s their company.
One thing that has never changed since 1953 is SpawGlass’s passion for its people. As Louis Spaw stated, "We don’t just build buildings. We build people."
Featured Community Involvement Events
On November 18, 2014, SpawGlass Foundation presented a check for $22,500 to Respite Care of San Antonio. The check represents proceeds raised from SpawGlass-San Antonio’s first annual golf tournament held in October. This gift will empower specialized care, healing and hope to children with special needs residing in the Davidson Respite House and the Najim Family Respite Home. Respite Care of San Antonio’s mission is to provide services to enhance the stability and the nurturing opportunities of families caring for a loved one with a developmental disability.
In October 2013, SpawGlass Civil coordinated the Stovall Middle School SPARK Park restoration and upgrade in Houston. SpawGlass and its specialty contractors donated approximately $25,000 in supplies and labor to replace park benches, add a shade structure, plant trees, seal the asphalt trail and clean and paint the existing play structure. Volunteers from SpawGlass completed the work over three days in October. In December, the SpawGlass team was recognized by the Greenspoint District with the 2013 Parks Partner of the Year Award.
SpawGlass-Houston, through the leadership of Operations Manager Richard Moore, took on a special project in 2012 – building a home for U.S. Marine Corporal Daniel Peterson through a partnership with the Homes for Our Troops organization. Corporal Peterson was serving in Afghanistan in 2010 when an explosion left him a double amputee. SpawGlass team members worked many hours constructing Corporal Peterson's new home, located in Tomball. “It is a great honor to be able to use our construction skills, along with the donated labor and material from members of our subcontracting family, to give something back to this young Marine who has sacrificed so much to serve and protect our country,” said Richard, himself a former Marine. A key ceremony for the new home, which was specially adapted to accommodate Corporal Peterson's injury and provided at no cost to him, was held on June 23, 2012.
