Dallas-based Balfour Beatty Construction acquired Houston-based SpawMaxwell Company, the state’s largest interior construction contractor, for an undisclosed amount. SpawMaxwell will retain its brand, but now operates as “SpawMaxwell – a Balfour Beatty company.”

SpawMaxwell revenues for 2008 were $350 million. The company employs 141 people across its three Texas locations in Houston, Austin and Dallas. Balfour Beatty Construction employs 1,600 professionals in 10 offices nationwide and had 2008 revenues of over $2.4 billion. In a prepared statement, Balfour Beatty CEO Robert C. Van Cleave said the move provides an immediate and substantial presence in key Texas markets outside of Dallas.
