​​​​WACO - Pearson Construction transformed the hulking, rusty grain silos at South Sixth St. and Webster Ave. into Magnolia Market at the Silos.​

It has received the “Outstanding Construction Award for Historical Renovation” from the Associated General Contractors of Texas.

The silos project “is a perfect example of a historical building being preserved and updated simultaneously, new use for an outdated facility,” K. Paul Holt, president of the local office of the Associated General Contractors of America​, said.

The Silos complex is inspired by the “Fixer Upper” television show on HGTV starring Magnolia Market proprietors Chip and Joanna Gaines.

It attracts 20,000 to 30,000 visitors a week from across the United States.

It took Pearson Construction and 12 local subcontractors about seven months in 2015 to give the 26,000-sf barn adjacent to the silos a new look and space for the general store and other retailing nooks and crannies.​​
