​​​​DALLAS - McCarthy Building Companies Inc. won the award to build Southwest Airlines' new office and training facility on the company's corporate campus in Dallas.

The new building, called "Wings", consists of a 414,000-sf office building and an attached 367,000-sf flight training center which will house 18 flight simulator bays, associated offices, and ancillary areas.

The training portion of the structure will be constructed out of a special hardened building that can withstand 210 mile winds as it must remain operational every day of the year in all weather conditions.

Included in the project is a 1,900 car parking garage and surface parking that together will provide for a total of 2,500 cars, as well as additional site work and construction of pedestrian bridges.

Southwest's corporate campus is adjacent to Love Field Airport.

The project architect is BOKA Powell.

The project will start in June 2016. 

​It is expected to be completed early 2018.​​
