Vogler & Spencer Engineering, Inc.’s (VSE) very own George Puig, P.E. has been busy this year volunteering to lead the Katy Christian Ministries (KCM) project to remodel their newest facility. George is a Senior Project Manager at VSE and has worked in the industry for 50+ years. Ten of which he spent running his own engineering company. He has served on the KCM Board of Directors for almost 15 years. George has used his knowledge and background in engineering and architecture to lead this project and is looking forward to completion so the facilities can be used to provide help to people in need in Katy and the surrounding areas.
KCM has been helping local families and individuals fight poverty, food insecurity, domestic violence, and sexual assault since 1984. The ministries continued growth called for more space. They purchased a 13,000-square-foot church on a little more than three acres of land. They have completely remodeled approximately 9,000 square feet with some changes to the 3,000 square feet and will be starting construction of a $600,000 contract for additional parking and drive to allow 18-wheelers access to the proposed food pantry. George has played a huge role since the start of the project by creating the preliminary architectural designs, selecting contractors, and overseeing construction. After a year, the facility includes a 3,000-square-foot food pantry, a 3,000-square-foot conference room, and twenty-three office spaces plus the usual ancillary spaces.
George shared that his initial involvement with this organization was quite spontaneous. He had already been involved in mission committees for his church most of his life, but when the church’s KCM Director announced she was looking for a replacement, he raised his hand without hesitation. He has been with KCM ever since and continues to support their efforts in the community.
VSE is honored to have attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony and thanks to George for working on such an important project. We cannot wait to go back when it is all finished!
