TDIndustries Regional Office
TDIndustries, a leading mechanical and plumbing contractor in Texas, is relocating their Houston office to a pristine 10 acre greenfield site in northwest Houston. With a strict budget but desire for future expansion, the 58,000 square foot multi-building complex is unapologetically assembled with efficiency in mind. The ‘tilt-wall’ construction method is put on full display, with variations in color and texture used to bring a human scale to the long expanses of concrete panel walls. The design is grounded in the company culture of teamwork and partnership, and features open work areas and no private offices. Ample glazing and narrow floor plates allow natural light deep into the work zones. Collaboration areas are spread among departments to allow for impromptu meetings and group work sessions, while enclosed meeting rooms allow for more private conversations and are denoted by material transitions and dynamic graphic treatments. The previously undeveloped site necessitates the building operate almost entirely off the grid, and features ample landscaping, on-site water harvesting, and a nature preserve with water features and a walking trail.
This project is a design-build collaboration with Benchmark Houston Builders.
