Facilities Maintenance Leader Targets Virtual Conferences in Various Industries to Showcase New Services
As a national construction, facilities maintenance and rollout service provider in Crowley, Texas, we would like to share our Fall/Winter 2020 trade show participation calendar. Even though we may not be able to see everyone in-person, we are thrilled that our Powerhouse team will be readily accessible through virtual meeting sessions and other conference activities. Current commitments target various industries ranging from rental housing and senior living facilities to banks.
“Rightfully so, many expos and conferences have either gone virtual or been postponed due to the pandemic,” said Amber Alvarez, Senior Vice President of Business Development, Powerhouse. “However, industry events are invaluable environments for networking, information gathering, and—for many of our customers—annual plan development. We’re continuing to engage in many events where we can help our customers maximize their time, hopefully making their jobs a little bit easier.”
Powerhouse’s broad range of construction, interior and exterior facility maintenance, and rollout services are executed by skilled employees and trusted contractors nationwide. The company continues to add unique solutions and skillsets to its portfolio, enabling customers to consolidate their facilities management partner network and, in turn, simplify day-to-day project administration. For example, Powerhouse’s capabilities now include the surface protectant SurfaceWise2™ (one of several available COVID-19 preparedness services) as well as banking-and-finance-centric expertise gained through the integration of Security Vault Works. ™

We’re expanding our COVID-19 Facilities Maintenance Services
As a national construction, facilities maintenance and rollout service provider, we are excited to announce that we are enhancing our COVID-19 response services. This new COVID-19 service will enable Powerhouse to apply SurfaceWise®2, proven to be the first and only surface protectant to continuously remove pathogens from surfaces for 90 days with a single application.
SurfaceWise2 is patented and supplied by Allied BioScience, a Dallas-based biotech firm with a history of developing long-lasting, environmentally-friendly solutions that create safer human environments. The service is pending imminent EPA approval.
As Allied BioScience’s first national facilities application partner for this solution, Powerhouse will enable facility managers of banks, hospitals, restaurants, retail stores, offices, and more to reduce health risks posed by COVID-19 and other infectious diseases.

Building Public Confidence
For over 16 years, our team at Powerhouse has supported the most well-known brands within the retail, hospitality, banking and healthcare industries nationwide. Its portfolio of services has strategically evolved to include a broad range of construction, interior and exterior facility maintenance, and rollout services.
In March 2020, Powerhouse pulled from its core competencies to compile a services package designed to help customers mitigate COVID-19’s impact. These services range from barrier installations and space reconfigurations to signage fittings and hands-free fixture installs. The package also includes interior and exterior sanitization services—which offer significant benefits to the marketplace with the integration of Allied BioScience’s technology.
“Powerhouse operates with a great sense of urgency. As the pandemic hit, we felt it our duty to identify new resources and processes to help our customers stop the spread of COVID-19,” said Amber Alvarez, Senior Vice President of Business Development, Powerhouse. “Through this partnership, Powerhouse will be able to supply customers with the only proven long-lasting surface solution to viral spread. We see this as an invaluable tool that will help people regain confidence as they get back to business.”
Traditional disinfectants are reactive and momentary, killing germs after they have already contaminated a surface. SurfaceWise2 works in reverse, coating a surface to continuously kill germs upon contact for months after application. Powerhouse has acquired the product and trained its team on advanced electrostatic sprayer technologies to enable the proper, full-coverage application of the surface protectant.
Allied BioScience has worked closely with the EPA to create an entirely new category for long-lasting, continuous protection against coronaviruses in response to this emergency crisis. Their mission strongly aligned with Powerhouse’s legacy of quick-turn, high-precision rollouts.
Powerhouse is slated to launch the new service this fall. For additional information on this and other coronavirus preparedness solutions, visit Covid-19 Services.

In this quickly changing environment, Powerhouse is your solution to protecting employees, customers, and the general public. For many of our customers, we’ve moved from plan to execution in a matter of days in response to OSHA and CDC safety recommendations. We understand that everyone’s health and safety is the highest priority while we act with a sense of urgency ensuring initiatives are completed as quickly as possible.
OSHA and the CDC are recommending installing engineering controls that involve isolating employees from work-related hazards.
These types of controls reduce exposure to hazards without relying on worker behavior and can be the most cost-effective solution to implement.
Engineering controls for SARS-CoV-2 include:
- Installing high-efficiency air filters.
- Increasing ventilation rates in the work environment.
- Installing physical barriers, such as clear plastic sneeze guards.
Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19:
- Installing a drive-through window for customer service.
- Specialized negative pressure ventilation in some settings, such as for aerosol generating procedures (e.g., airborne infection isolation rooms in healthcare settings).
- Installing kick plates and hands-free openers
- Store Front Board-ups
- Dark Property Security Protocols
We can respond to your urgent Facility Maintenance and Exterior Services needs, as well as other COVID-19 cleaning related needs.

Powerhouse has been involved with Outsystems since 2018. Outsystems is a global leader in low code rapid development technologies, and is a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Multi-experience Platforms and Low-Code Application Platforms, as well as a leader in the Forrester Low-Code Platforms Wave.
We were excited to be invited to their NextStep 2019 Conference at the beginning of October where we were represented by Powerhouse’s Senior Applications Developer, Mark McRight. Mark and Team have been steps ahead of Powerhouse’s growth as we’ve picked up the pace more and more every year. What an honor for Powerhouse and our spectacular IT team to be chosen for “Best Digital Transformation” out of hundreds of global Outsystems customers at the 2019 Innovation Awards!
Thank you, Outsystems and DoiTLean, for your help getting here and the recognition of our team’s hard work throughout this past year!
With their rapid growth and success, Powerhouse, a leader and innovator in Construction and Facility Maintenance, was challenged with legacy technologies and processes that were entirely dependent on e-mail, spreadsheets and disconnected platforms. Leveraging low code and rapid development tools from Outsystems and their chosen delivery partner DoitLean, Powerhouse developed a unified technology platform in just 14 weeks to reduce touchpoints through maintainable automation and workflow within several areas of their operation. The process improvement and workflow begins with New Business submission, and flows to project setup, resource profiles & allocation, performance tracking, travel booking and management. Through the implementation of high-tech process and workflow, the ability to continue unmatched customer service, project management and Quality control while continuing rapid growth is made possible.
