The history of Landmark Interest Corp. and its president/owner, M. David Boothe, began 40 years ago in the residential, multifamily, commercial and industrial construction markets. Seven years ago, Landmark's focus changed with Boothe's first self-storage project. Since then, the company's forte has been the construction of self-storage facilities.
Landmark, with an office conveniently located in Baytown, Texas, is a multitalented, multiservice construction firm with more than 100 years of construction experience. The company offers a variety of services in several divisions, from metal-building components to retrofit standing-seam roofs--including site-formed, one-piece roof panels for extended building widths.
The company's self-storage division offers proposed site layouts for maximum property use and complete engineered self-storage buildings. Projects include boat and RV storage, climate control, single- or multistory, and drive-thru. Landmark can deliver material or erected packages nationwide, including doors and insulation from multiple plants.
On a local scale, throughout Texas and Louisiana, Landmark offers additional construction services such as general contracting, construction management, and working with potential customers on negotiated projects as well as hard-bid construction. The company's turnkey division works closely with independent real estate agents on finding site locations and independent feasibility services to protect potential clients from building in areas that lack demand.
On design-build projects, Landmark works closely with the customers, architects and engineers to ensure a quality project that will function for years to come.
A part of the contracting business is staying on top of everchanging national and local code issues, the Americans with Disabilities Act and, in Texas, the Texas Accessibilities Standards Act. Landmark is familiar with work in all of these key areas.
The lifeblood of any business is its customer base. Landmark works closely with several repeat accounts and welcomes new business. The company's repeat clients are primarily upscale, "A-class" facilities offering many amenities. The base buildings are steel construction on concrete slabs, with alternate exterior finishes such as reverse-roll metal panel, stucco, brick veneer, CMU and insulated Rockwell.
Landmark's buildings are standard rectangular boxes or unique sizes and shapes, depending on the site layout. A variety of floor plans can be used to accommodate unit-mix demand. Single-story, multistory and drive-thru buildings contain climate- controlled as well as ambient units. Climate-controlled units are normally accessed via well-lit corridors with video surveillance, epoxy-painted floors, ceilings and individual unit alarms. Larger units are also used for office, warehouse, RV and boat storage, or covered parking.
Through market studies, Landmark has found amenities--such as extensive landscaping, wrought-iron security fencing and matching gates with keypad entries--attract potential customers. Well-marked buildings and wide concrete drives allow easy access to units. Finally, Boothe offers this advice: Business signs are a vital part of advertising in any business, but visible roll-up doors (whether operable or dummy doors) are the best way for a customer to recognize a storage facility.
Landmark is willing to work with clients in any way possible to provide the kind of service they will be proud to recommend to others. For more information about the company, site-planning assistance, quotations or other services, call 877.427.8085; visit www.landmarkinterest.com.
