TEXO Selects Structure Tone Southwest for Outstanding Project for 2009
(April 10, 2009) - The Dallas Chapter of TEXO, the construction association affiliated with Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) and Associated General Contractors (AGC), selected a Structure Tone Southwest managed project as an Outstanding Project for 2009. Structure Tone Southwest, a member of the Structure Tone organization, managed construction of the new Dallas Center for Architecture (DCFA). The project was selected as one of the winners among 88 entries.
Dallas Center for Architecture is the result of a three-year vision of the AIA Dallas chapter. The DCFA was designed and constructed to have as little impact on the environment as possible and the team achieved the goal of LEED Gold certification.
The focal point of the DCFA is the multi-purpose board and conference rooms. This focal point is enclosed by what is commonly known the “Crinkle wall,” which is faceted acid-etched glass – a creative and unique addition to the space.
The wall was also one of the most challenging aspects of the project, constructed with over 120 individual pieces of glass. One, two and three-ft sections were placed together at various angles to give it the unique “crinkle” effect.
The Structure Tone organization is a worldwide leader in construction services that includes Structure Tone Inc., Structure Tone International, Structure Tone Southwest, Pavarini Construction Co., and Pavarini McGovern. These companies collectively employ over 1,200 professionals, have 21 offices in the US, UK and Asia, and put in place over $3.0B in annual construction volume.
