Dallas, Texas – TDIndustries has been honored with the Pyramid Award in the Mechanical, over $10 million category for its One Frost project in San Antonio. Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) honored 98 projects collectively worth $2.4 billion at the 27th annual Excellence in Construction® Awards in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
“This was a one-of-a-kind project,” says Wesley Baker, Vice President of San Antonio Construction. “The complexity, pace, and design of One Frost required a large and very focused team to complete. Good relationships among our Partners and with other subcontractors had a substantial impact on the success of the project.”
The One Frost corporate campus was a 28-month project that included 434,270 sf of Class A Commercial and a 546,656 sf garage. Located on a 16.7-acre site in the Westover Hills area of the city, the facility incorporates an ecofriendly design and conservation measures, while integrating state-of-the-art building controls systems to increase efficiency throughout the campus. Throughout the course of construction, TD prefabricated and installed more than 550,000 lbs of sheet metal; 11,000 lf of chilled water piping; and more than 35,000 lf of plumbing for domestic cold water, hot water return, sanitary waste, storm water and reclaimed water. More than 430 plumbing fixtures were installed for the lavatories, water heater, booster pumps, and kitchen equipment, among others. The fully integrated controls installation included critical systems like HVAC, lighting, fire/life, irrigation and elevators.
