MW Builders, a renowned general construction company with a footprint spanning from Austin to Jacksonville, recently embarked on a mission to establish their mark in the DFW area. Their aspiration wasn’t just about building an office but crafting a space that resonates with their core values: teamwork, craftsmanship, and community involvement.
Understanding the significance of this being their maiden venture in the DFW zone, the overarching goal was to create a workspace that employees eagerly look forward to. Innovations like a spacious break room, a state-of-the-art gym complemented with showers, and diverse meeting spaces ranging from the open to the enclosed were introduced. Not just limited to employee welfare, the design also accounted for the wider community, integrating spaces conducive to hosting sizable events.
One of the standout architectural feats in the project is the garage doors leading from the break room into the training area. Beyond their visual allure, they epitomize functionality, aptly suiting the large-scale events MW Builders is known to host. Significant milestones of this venture included orchestrating a triumphant open house, ingeniously devising storage solutions catering to safety gear and promotional supplies, and, for O’Brien, the rewarding experience of collaborating with another notable GC in the area.
A solitary entity didn’t script the success narrative of this project. Key contributors spanned across Haggard Company’s Bill Rudd to MW Builders’ stalwarts like Charles Rombold, Shelby Roan, and Bridget Henderson, with a notable mention of O’Brien’s Jourdan Whatley RID, IIDA, NCIDQ.
For MW Builders, this Dallas office isn’t merely a workspace. It symbolizes their ethos and culture, a beacon inviting clients and partners to witness their values firsthand. It signifies their commitment to planting deep-seated roots in the DFW landscape, championing quality, community, and innovation.
