“We are very pleased with Gilbane’s work and the responsiveness they delivered every step of the way,” said Scott Webb, assistant vice president of real estate for American National Insurance Company. “Gilbane was a true partner in helping American National transform South Shore Harbour Resort and Conference Center into what is now the most appealing leisure and meeting destination in southeast Texas.”

“South Shore Harbour Resort and Conference Center has made an incredible transformation in just a few months,” said Angela Cotie, project executive, Gilbane Building Company. “The first major renovation since its 1988 opening, the property now offers a whole new look and style that is already generating positive response from guests and clients.  We are proud to have been a part of this important effort.”

“Those who know us are delighted with the ‘new’ South Shore Harbor Resort, and those who don’t know us yet are in for a big, positive surprise,” said Roy Green, general manager.  “We are grateful to the property’s owner, American National Insurance Company, for committing to what is already proving to be an investment well spent.”
