Texas A&M University College of Dentistry Clinic and Education Building – Dallas, TX

Project Overview

This project involved the construction of a nine-story, 304,000-square-foot healthy education facility located along Gaston Ave. To blend in and complement the existing architectural elements in the area, the building was clad in architectural precast, limestone, metal panels, and glass.

Due to limited site space and the presence of an adjacent building, the precast was erected using a tower crane, necessitating close coordination and detailing to ensure panels were sized within the crane’s capacity and could be installed as efficiently as possible. In total, 269 pieces of architectural precast were used, providing over 31,444 square feet of skin area.

The precast was colored to complement the natural limestone veneer, while the lower levels of the building feature architectural spandrels with multiple finishes in a seemingly random pattern to add vibrancy and texture to the façade. The upper levels consist of a more traditional, uniform color and finish to complement the limestone features.

Project Attributes:
Due to the limited space at the site and an existing building close by, the only viable solution for construction of the nine-story, 304,000 square foot healthy education facility was to use precast panels lifted by a tower crane. This required intricate coordination and precise detailing to ensure the panels were within the crane’s lifting capacity and could be installed in the most efficient manner possible. To make the most of the crane, the panels were placed overnight, allowing the crane to be used for other tasks during the day.

Precast Benefits

By combining architectural precast, limestone, metal panels, and glass, the building is able to blend in and complement the existing architectural along Gaston Ave., including the existing College of Dentistry main building. Precast is an economical and efficient solution as it offers a wide variety of colors and finishes, while also providing a fast and safe installation process.
