Alpha Testing Dallas once again teamed up with Archer Western and HNTB for the CANstruction Dallas competition.
“Our companies are working toward advances in transportation, including the highways, rail, airports, and BEYOND! Our structure is a depiction of the next era of space travel, leaving the balmy waves of Florida and looking toward Mars. While we work toward making your commutes better now and plan for the commutes of the future, one thing we CAN all work on is to eradicate hunger in our community. Let’s work together to rid Dallas of hunger today.” https://canstructiondallas2018.causevox.com/team/blastingouthunger
The entries are on display at NorthPark Center in Dallas until September 22nd, so make sure you check it out! Many thanks to all who participated, especially Jordan Koskelin and Hannah McAdams who represented Alpha on build day!
Alpha’s Team at the 22nd Annual AIA Dallas | Acme Brick Golf Tournament was the four “J’s”: John Greenwald, Joshua Rogg, Jacob Wadlington, and Jeff Wilt. The team expected to have a somewhat high score, and to celebrate that expectation, Team Captain Rogg elected to have a high thread count as well.
After the event, Rogg stated, “Well, we certainly were trophy bound, finishing last. But let’s not forget we finished first in fashion!” Maybe so, maybe not!

Team Alpha braved the elements last Saturday for the Form Follows Fitness 5K, benefiting the Dallas Center for Architecture! Even with the less than ideal conditions, it was a great event, with a course that took us past some of the best architecture in Dallas. Thanks to everyone who came by our booth (manned by Jacob Wadlington), and congrats to Junior Hernandez, Hannah McAdams, Allison Merecka, and Marianne Stanton for battling through the rain to get those awesome medals! Want to see more pics from the race? Check out https://www.facebook.com/FormFollowsFitness/. Can’t wait to do it again next year!
Alpha’s Alberto Flores and his wife gave their Saturday morning to help clean up the Trinity River at the Redeem the Stream: Dallas River Cleanup, put on by the North Texas American Water Works Association (AWWA) and the Water Environment Association of Texas (WEAT). Volunteers paddled and hiked their way around the Green Belt of the Elm Fork – a floodplain area of the Trinity that is a collection point for trash. In just one morning, volunteers freed the Green Belt from 5,580 pounds of trash and debris! Now that’s redeeming.
It has to be a good Wednesday when your Outlook calendar says “clay shoot” on it. Alpha sponsored a team at the Texas Association of Healthcare Facilities Management (TAHFM) Sporting Clays Tournament. Alpha’s Sean Bowman was one of the four in the group at the Westside Sporting Grounds in Katy, TX. The annual event included two courses, an awards ceremony, a raffle, and BBQ to end the day – all in support of TAHFM membership scholarships for professional development.
Alpha was the Title Sponsor at the TEXO Clay Bird Shootout in September, benefitting the TEXO Foundation. Six lucky staff members got to join in the festivities on Thursday as volunteers or clay shoot participants. Decked out in Alpha gear, our volunteers worked the stations and gave away all kinds of goodies throughout the event.
