Did you know we have CANstruction in San Antonio too? This year, Alpha sponsored Kimley-Horn and PBK to design and build “NOTABURGER”. The CANstructure took 3,800 cans to create and included Sloppy Joe sauce, black beans, diced tomatoes, stewed tomatoes, and green beans. NOTABURGER won the Best Meal award, given to the structure made up of the most versatile and nutritious combination of canned food. The CANstructures will be displayed at the North Star Mall until September 23, then all cans will be deCANstructed and donated to the San Antonio Food Bank. Make sure to vote for NOTABURGER for the People’s Choice Awards!
It’s CANstruction Season in Dallas at North Park Mall. Alpha Testing has teamed with Archer Western, HNTB, and DGR Consultants for our CANstructure. 16,000 canned goods make up the spiral staircase that represents our team’s theme “change comes one step at a time”. This is Alpha’s third year to participate in this international design/build competition that benefits the North Texas Food Bank.
North Park Mall is hosting this year’s competition, with 27 teams participating. Designs will be displayed from September 9-23 and are located on the first floor in the eastern half of the mall. Come see the CANstructures for yourself and make sure to vote for our team in the People’s Choice Award!
Here’s a look at our Alpha Testing kiddos on their first day of school. For some, the first of many to come, for others, the last “first day of school”, and a candlelight ceremony for Tarleton State college students. Thanks to all who sent in pictures!
Alpha Testing is grateful that our Houston staff and their families are safe. Our Houston office is undamaged and is up and running again. Thoughts and prayers for our community and all those affected by the hurricane.

Alpha Testing’s Senior Estimator took a trip down to our Houston office to lead a training for Alpha’s “Going Digital” campaign. We are excited for this transition and look forward for it to be in full swing!
To kick off the new school year, Grapevine-Colleyville Education Foundation hosted the New Educator’s Luncheon for Grapevine-Colleyville ISD on Monday. Alpha was a sponsor for the event and Alpha’s Joshua Rogg got to join in the 50’s themed celebration for over 50 years of community support. Congrats GCISD!
Coffee doesn’t always have to come from the break room. If you want to add some pizazz to your morning fuel, try Peridot Coffee, located right across the street from our Dallas office – doesn’t get much closer than that! Peridot boasts a similar menu to Brand S and serves up all the coffee, espresso, and tea you could want. Try the green tea flat, a three-layered drink that combines matcha green tea, espresso, and steamed milk (the latte and café mocha also get two thumbs up). Try some on the go the next trip to the office!
