VCI was formed in 1981 by Robert (Bob) Wallace, in McAllen Texas. Prior to starting Valley Commercial Inc, Bob’s experience for the previous decade was with US Steel, (Austin),HC UHR (San Antonio),Development Enterprises(Brownsville) and JLD Construction(Brownsville).
The intent from the start was to specialize in “commercial” building projects. The first ten years of projects were approximately 50% competitive bid including schools, medical and banks with the largest size being $6,000,000. The balance of work was invitational, Design/ Build.
From 1990 to 2001, all projects were negotiated, and primarily design build. Up To that point, total sales were nearly $300 million.
Starting 2002 thru 2006, only joint venture relationship and development related projects were conducted. Valley Commercial Inc also provided consulting services for a number of Marriott Hotels for one of the largest Marriot franchisee.
Currently, Valley Commercial Inc is restarting its direct construction efforts, concentrating on Hilton and Marriott Brand projects in south Texas, but expecting to expand its market with other commercial development projects by 2007. Brandon Wallace, who graduated from Texas A&M in 2004 joined Valley Commercial Inc in 2006 and is directly responsible for project administration.
