We’re proud of our Legend.

Recently our own, Russell Price, was selected among Post-Tensioning Institute nominees, honored with the PTI Legends of Post-Tensioning Award and inducted into the PTI Hall of Fame for making significant long-term contributions to the development of the post-tensioning industry in North America. The PTI Hall of Fame was established in 2005 to recognize the pioneers, the prominent and the exceptionally talented of post-tensioning industry success.

He has been with Suncoast since 1991, where he serves as the Executive Vice President – leading the high-rise building group and all technical activity. Aside from his contributions as a principal author for several PTI publications, Russ has also held several leadership positions within the Post-Tensioning Institute including past President, Board of Directors, Finance Committee, numerous technical committees and a Fellow. He is also a participating member of ACI and the Structural Engineers Association of Texas.

In 1972, Russ began his professional career with a consulting engineering firm and later moved into construction.

We appreciate his efforts to help champion the industry with Solutions from Slab to SkyTM.

Please join us in congratulating Russ.

Posted on April 13, 2017 by Naomi Spector

Suncoast Post-Tension supplied unbonded post-tensioning products including the Suncoast SRS® (Stud Reinforcement System) as well as engineered installation drawings for this new luxury high-rise apartment building in Houston, TX.

View the video below to learn more about the building that enables tenants and guests to seemingly “walk on air” as tiny cars zip along the busy street 500 feet below in Houston, Texas!

The infinity pool of Market Square Tower, also known as the Sky Pool, is on the 42nd floor and extends 10 feet over the side of the building.

Heart-pounding footage shows a brave resident walking around with ease on the 8-inch thick plexiglass while captivated online viewers watch in terror or amazement.
