Mitchell Historic Properties, owned by George and Cynthia Mitchell, hired Structura to help with rebuilding efforts, which include the re-construction of the Spa at Hotel Galvez and the hotel’s executive offices. The Spa at Hotel Galvez had custom mahogany trim and doors that had to be replaced and custom built.

In Old Galveston Square, Structura replaced all electrical circuitry and wiring, which had been removed by a previous demolition contractor.

Structura also refurbished a Victorian-era, Samson Heidenheimer-built structure. Hired to replace the 3,700-sq-ft building to its former splendor, the company replaced the drywall with paperless drywall and wanes coating by installing tongue-and-groove bead board that matched the original woodwork. Structura matched the antique slate tile and refinished the wood flooring, in addition to upgrading all mechanical and electrical systems. Custom interior wood doors were manufactured and installed, and exterior glass was replaced.

Additionally, Structura completely remodeled the Galveston Parks Board Plaza and is currently wrapping up projects on the Strand that include several retail spaces, the Old Galveston Square Commons, the Dargan & Tobyn Building and the Heidenheimer Hunter Building.
