DALLAS – For developers, being highly visible can boost business prospects.
So on the Park District project in Dallas, Trammell Crow and its partner Met Life selected top-down construction to accelerate the schedule and get the project moving toward the skyline sooner.
The top-down method allows vertical construction to begin while excavation continues below, removing excavation as a separate phase.
The office tower construction is one of three concurrent workflows underway on the three-acre site, along with the residential tower and a 750,000-sf podium structure.
At peak construction, workforce will be about 550 per day and total hours will top 900,000 by project completion.
The office tower, which will be anchored by PricewaterhouseCoopers, is targeted for completion in January 2018, followed by the residential tower in April 2018.
