Crossland was tapped to build two impressive warehouses in Frisco, Texas, to hold all merchandise for the Dallas Cowboys. Every piece of Cowboys clothing funnels through this location.
The DCM building is 407,000 SF and houses merchandise operations offices in the front of the structure. At that size, it’s no surprise that all shipping, storing, receiving, and boxing functions go through the DCM warehouse facility. The building includes a 44,000 SF print shop to manage all their screen printing, as well as a retail outlet store. Crossland also built a break room and café, which serves as a common area for their employees. The other structure was a 150,000 SF shell building that’s leased out by the organization.
Regarding exterior features, our team used form liners for the DCM building exterior. All consisted of tilt-up, painted concrete walls. Instead of using masonry, crews imprinted the concrete with form liners to mimic stone. Both of the main entrances have ACM (acoustical) black metal panels. At the owner’s request, we also installed and maintained landscaping throughout the project’s duration.
As always with Crossland, crews tackled challenges head-on, including concrete pours during one of the wettest weather periods on record. Our team self-performed a portion of the concrete work and worked overtime to maintain the schedule agreed upon at the start of the project. The buildings were CMAR – we worked closely with the design team for eight months of pre-construction to determine accurate pricing, allowing us to establish and keep the project within budget. Selecting the right subcontractors was also essential to project timing and budget.
The project was ultimately delivered on time and within budget, even amid a few delays due to the pandemic.
