Located in the heart of downtown Midland, the Midland Convention Center site has served as the city’s meeting space since 1882. After many buildings called the site home, the City of Midland constructed a convention center in 1980. While developing plans for the renovation of the existing Midland Center, it was found to be more cost effective to demolish the facility and replace it with a new $42.8 million convention center. The new convention center will feature 20,000 sf for exhibit hall space, 3,000 sf for small meetings and 6,000 sf that will function as a ballroom and large meeting space. It was important that the building be able to host multiple large and small concurrent events. In addition to the meeting space, the facility will have an expanded lobby and pre-function space, kitchen facilities and state-of-the-art audio/visual and technology capabilities. Maverick performed all civil engineering functions including survey coordination, platting, and plans for grading, drainage, paving and Storm Water Pollution Prevention. Maverick also provided utility coordination. Because this site is located in an older section of the downtown area, there were many unknown utility conflicts requiring a great amount of coordination between Maverick, City Staff, and the various utility providers. This project is currently under construction.
One of Midland’s newest retail sites offers 48,000 square feet of retail space plus a 5,600 square foot restaurant pad site. The project was located within a Planned District and involved filing an amendment for revised usage requirements. Challenges arose because a regional park is located behind the site. Due to the proximity of the park, the City Planning & Zoning Committee desired a CMU wall along the rear of the shopping center. Maverick presented a case on behalf of the client to eliminate the need for the wall, saving the client approximately $110,000.
Located at Loop 250 and Business Highway 20, this upscale movie theater site serves as the anchor for the Gateway Retail Subdivision.

This massive 12 acre Cinergy Odessa site brought the latest in gaming and cinema entertainment to Odessa, Texas. Although it was the second Cinergy Cinemas complex engineered by Maverick, it presented its own challenges. Maverick was contracted to coordinate TxDOT access to the site, manage project subconsultants, and coordinate dry utility needs to the site in addition to the gamut of our civil design repertoire. All of this was executed concurrently with the addition of the Hamburger Station restaurant joining the site on the north side. The combined sites constituted significant post-development drainage challenges which were relieved by the design and excavation of a large regional drainage basin.

A unique part of this project involved working with TXDOT on drainage issues, driveway permitting through special circumstances, and Right of Way encroachments.
Phase II of the Commons at Northpark Shopping Center includes pad sites for restaurants and retail as additions to the Phase I retail center.

Situated on a south lot of The Commons Retail Center, this Panera Bread Co. location is Midland’s first. This development comes in tandem with the final phase of The Commons build-out and has excellent exposure with frontage on the bustling Loop 250 Service Road. Maverick Engineers were faced with the challenge of situating an efficient drive-thru design around the site, while being cognizant of traffic flows through the shared access and parking lots connected to the north. Concerns of traffic stacking were addressed by utilizing a design that queued drive-thru traffic around nearly three-quarters of the perimeter of the building while retaining safe and easy access in and out of the facility, all while maintaining an aesthetically appealing site.
Maverick is often looked to by clients for services throughout Texas.
