TCC Multi-Family Interiors is a premier subcontractor in the new construction multi-family industry. After 25 years in the business, they made the decision to expand into a new campus in northwest Houston and selected Trammell Crow company as Construction Manager, Seeberger & Associates as the Project Architect and Rosenberger Construction as the General Contractor. Construction on the campus began in January 2019 with completion in December 2019. The final result is a high-quality office and industrial park that serves as the flagship national location for TCC Multi-family Interiors.
The layout for the office building was angled on the site to increase visibility from the main entry drive. A pond and fountain feature were added along the main entrance to create more secluded feel inside the existing canopy of trees located around the perimeter of the site. Tilt-up construction was selected as the method of choice for the exterior walls on both the Office Building and the Warehouse due econiomics, durability and speed of construction as well as its ability to pair with the other exterior finishes such as alucobond metal panels, aluminum sunshades and a thin-set stone veneer. The covered outdoor patio area at the rear of the office building can be accessed from the Break Room/Training area and features porcelain pavers, landscaping and an L-shaped trellis area. The Office Lobby consists of a two-story curtainwall glass entry, grand stairway and large format tile wall. The second floor has access to an outdoor trellis patio area that is connected to the Board Room and Executive Office Area. In addition to storing material for TCC’s active projects, the tiltwall warehouse building contains a fitness center, locker/shower area and a large two-story lounge showcasing the Owner’s extensive collection of taxidermy mounts featuring different animals from all over the world.
Property did not contain any on-site utilities. The project required annexation into Municipal Utility District #21 for provision of utilities to service the site. As this was a greenfield development, significant road infrastructure needed to be extended to provide access the site and a large public detention pond constructed. Additionally, a temporary heavy timber road was required to be placed to allow construction vehicle access to the site due to excessive rain days.
At the request of the Owner, the team performed an existing tree survey prior to construction mobilization which allowed for preservation of over 100 existing mature trees along the perimeter of the site. Interior and exterior LED lighting was incorporated throughout project for high energy efficiency. A cistern was added along the north end of the Office Building to collect rain water runoff to irrigate the Owner’s above ground planters and garden.
