Why Summit? The Builder You Can Trust...The Builder To Rely On

The Summit Vision

Summit Building & Design’s vision is to become a regional leader in the construction industry. We strive to realize this vision by dedicating ourselves to the pursuit of excellence in construction management. We are committed to building strong client relationships that are founded on quality, integrity, and trust. We build those relationships by operating as a partner and a collaborator on every job. We work with complete transparency, approaching each client and party involved in the job as part of our team. In our pursuit of excellence, no project is complete until the client is 100% satisfied.

Summit Coordination & Teamwork

At Summit Building & Design, our team of building and design professionals brings over 50 years’ experience to every project.

We come from a diverse range of backgrounds, each of them providing unique talents, professional experiences, innovative perspectives, and creative insights. When you hire us, we work to make you part of that team. We consider your expectations and contributions integral to the contract.

We know what it takes to balance and coordinate the various parties and trades involved in major construction. From city officials, to architects and engineers, from developers, to subcontractors, and numerous others, we know who to contract and who to call for every phase of the job.



Summit Building & Design is proud to be Texas born and true. However, with offices in Laredo, Odessa, Waxahachie, Houston, San Antonio, Beeville, Mission Rio, Edinburgh, and Raceland, Louisiana, we have the reach and flexibility to work beyond Texas borders. Our training and expertise in architecture and civil engineering allows us to provide clients with all-in-one, turnkey solutions. We transform ideas into real-world constructions of style and functionality. And we get the job done on budget and on time, every time—we guarantee it.


From inception to final inspection, we know all the ins and outs of the industry. We’re experts in regulatory and oversight requirements, and we know how to manage every aspect of a project. We assemble detailed estimates and precise budgets, double and triple checking each. And we work hard to ensure accurate takeoffs, contracting, purchasing, and invoicing. Our goal is zero change orders on every job. Our team gets it right the first time, every time, always staying on schedule and delivering second-to-none workmanship, performance, and value.


We make it easy to monitor and track each job. We use Sage 300, a state-of-the-art software package, paired with Cloud Base management software, to grant online access to everyone associated with the project. Our system provides comprehensive access to all project-related documentation. We also issue real-time data, as well as daily reports. And we provide round-the-clock video access to each project. Just log in from a desktop or a smart device to watch real-time, on-site footage of the work in progress. We make and release drone-based video of major project milestones, too, including: pouring the first concrete, framing walls, exterior and interior finish completion, completed products.

Summit Tradition

Summit Building & Design started life in 1942 as the construction arm of Arguindegui Oil Company (AOC). Today, Summit is a division of AOC and remains a proud part of the Arguindegui Family, which includes:

  • AOC Management
  • Arguindegui Oil Company II
  • AOC Fleet & Fueling
  • AOC Real-Estate Development
  • Summit Building & Design

During its first 69 years of operation, Summit functioned solely as an in-house builder, managing and completing all of AOC’s construction jobs. Those jobs included a range of diverse projects: “Mom & Pop” Gas Stations; Fueling Facilities; Bulk Plants; Terminals & Warehouses; Convenience Stores; and Travel Centers.

In the 1970s, Summit’s second generation of leadership ascended and began diversifying the company’s business ventures. Summit has since expanded into retail development, real estate acquisition, and construction. The company has also established a land development division.

In 2002, Summit celebrated 60 years as AOC’s in-house builder. By 2004, when the company’s third generation of leadership assumed control, management had begun to realize the value of growing the company beyond in-house AOC projects to encompass private and public projects as well.
