Given that “new” is part of the word “news”, there’s plenty for ESD to report about in Dallas. New employees, a new office and new projects all amount to good news in the Southwest market.
Our growing office recently added Robin Fuller and Darren Trout. Robin, a project designer who boasts experience in mechanical, electrical and plumbing, has gotten involved right away with a project for a major financial-trading company in Austin. She has worked on many major projects, including coordinating electrical power and lighting for the shell, core and interior of the USAA complex in Phoenix — an area so large it features its own zip code. Challenges? “A lot of people had a lot of changes. There were probably 42 types of light fixtures alone,” she says. She assisted with LEED, and the project earned gold certification.
Darren, a lead electrical engineer, has jumped right in on a project for a large medical-services company in the Dallas area, which will feature more than 500,000 square feet of office space and conference rooms encompassing two buildings. He has experience across Texas, including work on the Four Diamond-rated Embassy Suites Convention Center Hotel in Amarillo, which won an award for Best Adaptive Reuse this year. He saved the client $35,000 by choosing an alternate for the LED downlighting, utilizing incandescent base housings with LED retrofit lamps.
Both Darren and Robin are enjoying the new office space in Irving. It’s situated perfectly between Dallas and Fort Worth to serve clients in both spots. Come visit us at 545 East John Carpenter Freeway, Suite 300 or call (972) 719-9024 to chat.
Other major Texas-based projects include one for the world’s leading gaming software company and another for a rapidly expanding financial firm. And the office is working hard on projects in Arizona, Utah and Nevada since it is strategically positioned to support and serve clients across the Southwest.
