Houston Food Bank
Winner in the non-profit category of the 2013 Development of Distinction Award, presented by the Houston District Council of the Urban Land Institute, the Houston Food Bank is a source of food for hunger relief charities in 18 southern Texas counties. Teaming up with Tellepsen Builders, Pieper helped renovate the 30-year-old Houston Food Bank to triple its distribution capacity. The 308,000 sq. ft. facility is the nation's largest capacity Feeding America food bank, and its energy costs are 40% less than projected.
