Michael G. Scheurich’s passion for construction originated with a love of architecture and how buildings are designed. He entered the College of Architecture at Texas A&M University with the vision to become an architect, but quickly realized he wanted to be in construction. He wanted to build. This led him to obtain his bachelor’s degree in construction science from Texas A&M University. His construction career began in Dallas and then in Houston, where he worked for three of the top 20 general contractors in the world. This was the incubation period for Scheurich’s vision to start his own construction company.
Scheurich knew that if he wanted to start his own construction company, he needed more than just a degree in the science of how to build. He also needed to understand the science of how to operate a company, so he obtained his master’s degree in business administration from the University of St. Thomas in Houston. With an MBA in tow, he established Arch-Con Corporation in 2000 as a resource for the local commercial real estate community in the areas of office and industrial design-build construction. Along the way, the business expanded into the markets of retail, healthcare, corporate interiors, hospitality, multifamily, office and community construction. Currently, the company has offices in Houston, Dallas and Los Angeles with an annual volume of nearly $400 million and more than 150 employees.
Additionally, Scheurich utilizes his design and construction relationships to team up with strategic partners to develop high-quality assets. Arch-Con’s home office was developed by Scheurich in 2009 and work is now underway on a new office building development for Arch-Con near TC Jester and Washington Blvd in Houston. He is experienced in leveraging the latest design technologies that are cost efficient in their respective markets and is always pushing the envelope from a technology perspective. He is currently in the process of securing a patent for an innovative construction technique.
Scheurich currently serves on the Wallis State Bank Board of Directors, Bo’s Place Board of Directors, the University of St. Thomas Buildings and Grounds Committee and the Annunciation Orthodox School Building and Grounds Committee. He served on the Houston NAIOP Board of Directors for nine years, the National NAIOP Board of Directors for three years and currently serves on the National NAIOP Forum. He also donates his time and resources to important organizations like SEARCH Homeless Services, St. Anne Catholic Community, CCSC, Houston Area Women’s Center, Henry’s Home Horse & Human Sanctuary, among others.
