Graham Associates, Inc. is very diverse in its experience ranging from freeway projects (Interstate 30) to mixed use developments (Southlake Town Square) to sports/entertainment facilities (Dallas Cowboys Stadium). Graham Associates has done a myriad of projects over the thirty years of its existence. However, the firm has evolved into one of the leaders in providing civil engineering.We strive to “build cities”. Cities require a place to live, work, play, shop, and learn. Cities also require transportation. Graham Associates has very purposely provided civil engineering services to build all of these elements that make up a City.
Our firm has been fortunate to be the Civil Engineers on many premier projects that form the building blocks of a City. Projects such as Park Central, providing a mixed use of residential and office, is an icon in the heart of Dallas. Southlake Town Square is another building block which provides a total mixed use of residential, office, entertainment, and retail in one location. Quality of life is enhanced by Parks and River Legacy Parks in the geographic center of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex is nationally recognized and has done much to improve the quality of lives.
In the entertainment building block, we have been the Civil Engineer for United Artist Theatres and many sports entertainment venues including the New Dallas Cowboys Stadium. This project has been very rewarding in seeing the highest crime area of a City, redeveloped into a productive use that has increased property values. The project has also facilitated major transportation improvements that Graham Associates has designed including major thoroughfares, freeways, and interchanges, mass transit planning, and the implementation of “Intelligent Transportation Systems” to inform and facilitate the smooth flow of traffic.
Another building block are churches and schools. Graham Associates has had the opportunity to provide planning and civil engineering for some of the largest churches in the world including Prestonwood, Fellowship Church and Potter’s house. These church campuses ranged in size from 139 to 600 acres with worship centers seating up to 7,000 people. Prestonwood also included a school campus for kindergarten through 12th grade.
Each of these premier projects has afforded the opportunity to work with some of the top professionals in their respective fields of expertise, while gaining valuable experience. These professionals include the Beck Group, RTKL, and HKS, Inc. They also include such notable planning and architectural firms such as David M. Schwarz from Washington, D.C. and Cooper Robertson based in New York.
Our input has proven invaluable to the success of each of these projects and had also resulted in the savings of both time and money. Graham Associates has a reputation for finding a way to implement the vision while “getting things done” in an expeditious manner. GAI takes seriously the input of the Owner, the Architect and each design team member in determining design solutions to meet their criteria.
