Many of our projects require integrative thinking on ways to remove waste and add value, not only through creativity but also through practicality. We need partners who have the wherewithal to work with us in a very collaborative manner, to scenario plan and help not only document our designs but drive our designs. I have found Armstrong-Douglass to be as good as any partner. Their customer service approach, the understanding of our overall systems, and their overall responsiveness have been valuable to me in the two decades in which we have worked together.”

FEATURED PROJECT - COX HEALTH BED TOWER

This project consisted of a patient tower to support neuroscience and women’s & children’s services.  The structure included reinforced concrete flat slab floors, columns and shear walls supported on a drilled pier foundation system.  The scope included two drop-off canopies and exterior improvements to the adjacent, existing bed tower.

FEATURED PROJECT - 1217 MAIN

This jewel in downtown Dallas includes renovations and additions to an existing 4-story + basement building.   The new program for the building consists of meat processing and a bakery at the basement level, a ground-floor restaurant, and office space above the ground floor.  We were able to determine that with moderate reinforcement, the existing structure could support a vertical addition of an office level at the existing roof level, gaining valuable leasable area for the Owner.   Additional design challenges include structural support of new roof-top mechanical equipment and new façade materials.

FEATURED PROJECT - FSU WELLNESS CENTER

This project included a variety of functions, including a fitness center, auditorium, medical clinic and classrooms.  The structure consisted of a cast-in-place, post-tensioned slab and beam system supported on spread footings.
