CLT Installation Presentation at UARK's Library Storage Project
February 8, 2018 CST Press Release:
We are excited to reveal the first CLT panel at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville (UARK)'s Library Storage Project! We have partnered with Austrian wood vendor, Binderholz, to bring CLT BBS wood (for the first time in Arkansas) for construction of this project....
CLT BBS is a multilayer construction, completely made of solid wood. By bonding the longitudinal and transverse layers together, any warping of the wood - swelling or shrinkage - is reduced to a negligible level. This means it can comfortably meet the requirements of a modern building material. The solid finished component is able to carry high loads, is fireproof, enables rapid construction without water, and has sound and heat insulating properties. It regulates the humidity of the air inside the building, creating a comfortable and balanced climate - in both summer and winter.
Building our University. Building Arkansas. Building the World.

Latest Photos from the Atlanta Hawks' Philips Arena Renovation
February 1, 2018 CST Press Release:
Renovations for the Philips Arena began June 17, 2017 and we are currently embarking on the second phase of this complex project. Phase 2 will take place behind the scenes, largely out of the public and patrons’ eye. Phase 2 sets the framework for the major cosmetic overhaul that will take place in Phase 3. Phase 2 of the Philips Arena Renovation will remodel areas that will not affect the Hawks’ NBA Season or other Philips Arena concerts and events. The scope is targeted for specific work areas isolated from patrons with temporary partitions, banners, and permanent walls. Renovations are scheduled to be complete October of this year.
As a Christmas gift, Gina Alley took her dad, Gerald, to the Gladys Knight concert this past weekend at the Global Event Center at the WindStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Oklahoma.
Gladys Knight is fondly known as the “Empress of Soul.” The seven-time Grammy-award-winning performer is best known for the hits she recorded during the 1960s and 70s, with her group Gladys Knight & The Pips. Knight is best known for the song, “Midnight Train to Georgia.”

Latest photo of the construction site for the Library Storage Project at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. With digital media and social changes in academics, the Mullins Library reached maximum capacity and the university entered plans that will meet current and future needs of students by providing new learning techniques that will be central to the growth of the library facility. In 2015, Con-Real was retained to construct the Library Storage Building expected to... be completed this year. This new book storage and retrieval facility will use a high density shelving system and have unique design components that are part of LEED Silver qualifications. The Library Storage Building will house >1.5 million books and artifacts from the Mullins Library. Con-Real is currently the CMAR on this GMP delivery. We have also been selected to perform renovations on the Mullins Library.
