Johnson Elementary Reaches New Heights

Johnson Elementary Moves to Be More Energy Efficient

Work on Carroll ISD’s Johnson Elementary School has ramped up now that Summer break is here. Last week, we started transitioning the school from a traditional HVAC system to a Geothermal Heat Pump (GHP) system by taking energy efficiency to new heights! Using helicopters to remove the old rooftop HVAC units reduces the task from multiple days to just a few hours.

Geothermal heat pumps heat and cool buildings by concentrating the naturally existing heat contained within the earth—a clean, reliable and renewable source of energy.

If you’re a native Texan, then you’ve experienced the scorching heat of the summer, but did you know, just a few feet below the earth’s surface the ground remains at a relatively constant temperature? Depending on latitude, ground temperatures range from 45°F (7°C) to 75°F (21°C).

Like a cave, this ground temperature is warmer than the air above it during the winter and cooler than the air in the summer. The GHP takes advantage of this by exchanging heat with the earth through a ground heat exchanger.

Johnson Elementary Progress To Date

The REEDER team just completed Stage 1 of the Johnson Elementary project by wrapping up the new gym (which also functions as a storm shelter) as well as the addition of two new kindergarten classrooms and a maker space. Next stages include the addition of a new fourth grade wing along with the continued renovation of the existing school.

So enjoy the summer kids! We will see you in August with some “cooler” new digs! To learn more, visit www.reedergeneral.com.

REEDER Volunteers For Fort Hood Soldiers

Just when we think opportunities to serve our troops can’t get any better, we get invited to a volunteer event like the Ben Hogan Classic at Fort Hood.

The REEDER team was honored to attend a military appreciation event this past Thursday and Friday,  April 25 and 26, 2019. According to, Fort Hood Lieutenant General Paul Funk, ” the Ben Hogan Classic at Fort Hood was the best appreciation event done on the base each year.” Given that there are over a hundred events each year at Fort Hood to honor our military, this is a very powerful statement.

Thursday, we arrived for a special session of tactical training, ending the evening with a welcoming dinner, drinks, and music where Commanding General Funk gifted Wes Reeder with a coin—a very special honor.

Wes served as an ambassador and welcomed the soldiers to the classic, while the rest of the REEDER team passed out gifts, served breakfast and volunteered during the tournament to make sure the soldiers could enjoy a stress free and beautiful day of golf. It’s the least we could do to honor these amazing men and women who so proudly serve our great nation.

It is truly an honor to have the opportunity to say “thank you” to so many of our soldiers for their service to our country. Thank you to the Ben Hogan Foundation for the invitation. We will see you next year!

Lane Reeder Awarded 40 Under 40

CEO of REEDER Construction recognized for improving Tarrant County

FORT WORTH, Texas (APRIL 25, 2019) – Lane Reeder, Chief Executive Officer for REEDER Construction, a local general contractor with a solid reputation of integrity and performance was awarded the celebrated Fort Worth Business Press’ 40 Under 40 at Cendera Center on April 24, 2019.

Beginning as field superintendent in 2006 Lane advanced to Vice President of Operations by 2010. Beginning with a ground up knowledge of construction processes Lane has helped to transform REEDER’s company systems; everything from creating a hiring matrix, to ensure we hire the “right” individuals, to hands on training for project managers and engineers. He also has a keen understanding of contracts and finance, working strategically with executive management to hit REEDER’s targets. His leadership has been an integral part of taking REEDER from revenues of about $5 million in 2006 to over $50 million in 2018.

“40 Under 40 is celebrated to recognize brilliance on the rise up, 40 honorees each year, all under the age of 40, destined for striking accomplishments in their chosen field, from the corporate sector to maverick entrepreneurialism. They are leaders today and are sure to be part of the next generation that will make Tarrant County a great place to live and work,” according to the Fort Worth Business Press.

Through his leadership, Lane has implemented cutting-edge technology that interfaces with management procedures, job-costing, scheduling and communication systems.  All of which have led to more competitive pricing, higher-quality and shorter project duration.

Lane’s creativity has led to a myriad of structural and organizational innovations within REEDER. He has worked with corporate partners to develop software platforms to better log and manage field operations. He has created and drafted industry specific management policies, project accounting functions and project delivery marketing proposals. His problem solving skills have led to new checks and balances that contribute to the “lessons learned” aspect of industry challenges. His ability to understand and embrace key market indicators and industry challenges, and transform them into viable opportunities bring added value to REEDER’s business model.

Lane is deserving of this honor because of his exemplary work ethic. Anyone who knows him immediately understands that he leads by example. He is tireless in achieving the highest standards for REEDER and understands that teamwork is more than a concept. His hands-on approach to problem solving is just one example of his commitment to his employees and executive team.

Lane’s integrity, loyalty, commitment and accountability underscore his work ethic and ability. His tireless attitude for excellence in others is exceeded only by the demands he makes on himself. His genuine concern for the “person” as opposed to the “employee” and his ability to lead by example, is obvious to everyone that works with him.
