TDIndustries Contributes to Dallas Skyline with Design-Build Project

DALLAS - (February 22, 2022) – As The Link at Uptown luxury office tower in Dallas draws in tenants to its stunning location, TDIndustries celebrates the completion of the mechanical construction phase of the design-build project.

Design-build refers to the project delivery method that provides both design and construction services as one unified flow of work from conception to completion. Over its three years of planning and construction with the owner and project partners, TD installed all of the HVAC, plumbing and building controls for the project, including three 300-ton chillers on the building’s roof.


"We embrace the collaboration of the entire design and construction team using design-build methods to enhance owner value," said TD’s Vice President of Design-Build Business Development Gary Roden. "With Balfour Beatty, BOKA Powell and Kaizen Development, we were able to bring to the table a design-build partnership that ensured premier quality and innovation while speeding up the project timeline."


With thoughtful planning early on from TD’s professional engineering team of Elizabeth Welch, Mechanical Engineer, and Ken Luong, Senior Project Manager, TD’s service and facilities maintenance expertise influenced design decisions that will save future repair and maintenance costs throughout the life of the building.


"On a core and shell office tower, the primary design challenge is providing for the future," Welch said. "You don’t want to bring in a tenant and have them rip out what you just put in. With the plumbing, you want to offer flexibility for a break room at the far end of the floor or a private restroom for an executive, yet still execute cost-effectively."


By adopting a collaborative culture within a construction project from the beginning, TD projects that use design-build deliver the owner’s vision with savings in both cost and completion time. For more information on The Link at Uptown, visit the TD Talks Blog.
