Fort Bend County Celebrates Milestone with Epicenter Beam Signing

It was a great day to be on the grounds of the future Fort Bend County Epicenter as the final beam was installed. To commemorate this milestone, Satterfield & Pontikes Construction (S&P) and honored guests gathered to hold a special beam signing ceremony. Leading the ceremony was Kevin Matocha, President of Stonehenge Holdings. 

Speaking on the future of the project, Matocha pronounced “Often times, Fort Bend County residents have to go into Houston to go to an event. Well guess what? The traffic has now changed. The welcome mat is open at the Fort Bend Epicenter and we will start seeing the traffic come out to Fort Bend County. They will experience our community in a wonderful way.” 

The $120 million project will have a substantial impact on the community including use as an emergency shelter, gathering place for graduation ceremonies, music venue, sports, and even a staging area for the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. With a capacity for 10,400 seats both telescopic and fixed, the center will be divided into 170,400 square-feet for the main arena, 20,000 square-feet multi-purpose event center, and 39,000 square-feet pavilion that provides extra covered staging areas for agricultural events. 

“This will seriously change this county. Lives will be touched, relationships will be formed, bonds will be made, prizes will be won, families will be proud, kids will learn, commerce will take place,” remarked Fort Bend County Commissioner Grady Prestage. “All of this on the 53 acres we’re sitting on right now.”  

Fort Bend Commissioner Vincent Morales stated he was excited for this development after the committee’s tremendous efforts to bring this project to reality. “We chose this specific piece of land and named it the Epicenter, because it is the exact epicenter of Fort Bend County. This is going to be an asset for Fort Bend County for many years to come,” says Morales. 

S&P serves as the General Contractor on the job with Clyde Pershall as Superintendent and Adriana Guerrero as Project Manager. 

“It takes a lot of organization to build a structure like this and I am very, very impressed with Satterfield & Pontikes. They have done a fantastic job,” said Matocha.  

In attendance was S&P CEO and Chairman, George A. Pontikes Jr., as well as Fort Bend County Judge K.P. George, Fort Bend County Commissioner Grady Prestage, Fort Bend County Commissioner Vincent Morales, Rosenberg Mayor Kevin Raines, Representatives from Lamar Consolidated ISD and Fort Bend ISD, Dan Boggio, CEO of PBK Architects, Toby Wyman, Epicenter General Manager, and representatives from project partners at PBK Sports Stonehenge Holdings, PBK Architects, STOA Architects, Sustaita Architects, LEAF Engineers, Walter P. Moore, Republic EDS, Greenscape Associates, and Kaluza Engineering.  

The Epicenter is estimated to complete Summer of 2023.
