Spanning more than 45 acres, the Southstone Yards development features the first mass timber office building in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The building will anchor a campus with future plans for mixed-use retail and residential spaces accompanied by nine acres of green space.
We provided structural engineering services to Gensler for the seven-story, 242,000- square-foot building.
- Floors two through seven are designed with southern yellow pine harvested in Alabama.
- The building's core and first floor podium are concrete. The core is framed with flat plate post-tension slabs with concrete shear walls for lateral support.
- We performed a Life Cycle Assessment to help meet the rigorous sustainability goals of the project by examining the environmental impact of the structure and its components.
