What do Hemisfair Park, AT&T Center, and the San Antonio River Walk have in common? These landmark projects, among many that have shaped the 210 into what it is today, have all sought the expertise of the Alterman Inc., San Antonio’s oldest and largest electrical contractor.
Let’s take a look the company’s influence in San Antonio.
⚡ A century in the making Since 1923, Alterman has been involved in some of the Alamo City’s most iconic builds + commercial remodels. Here’s a brief timeline of major projects:
1968 — The company’s services were used to complete 30 monumental projects at Hemisfair Park for the 1968 World’s Fair — see the photos.
1990s — After becoming an employee-owned company in 1984, Alterman was hired by publishing company Harcourt, Brace and Jovanovich during the early days of “SeaWorld of Texas.”
Present — The company has since worked on projects like the Alamodome, Christus Santa Rosa Children’s Hospital, and the ongoing San Pedro Creek Cultural Park.
⚡ New beginnings Nearing its centennial, the SATX-based company broke ground on its new $60 million headquarters in Live Oak, across IKEA and the RBFCU headquarters buildings.
