Parking Garage

SW Houston SSA Office Building (.pdf)

This project included the renovation of an office building that was more recently used as a church. To meet the Social Security Administration’s needs, the building required demolition of nearly all of the existing built-out space and re-construction of new facilities for the SSA. WM Dillard & Associates worked closely with the Owner and the Architect as there was a short window from project start to completion.

This project site lacked the high parking requirement of the SSA. Therefore, WM Dillard & Associates built a 2-story parking garage to accommodate the parking needs. This 28,500 SF structure was built of structural steel with concrete over metal deck on the 2nd floor. Because of a short time-frame for the garage completion, W.M. Dillard & Associates worked with the Owner to design/build the parking garage.

Location: Houston, Texas 77092

Project Size: 191,386 SF
Completion: September 2001
Building Type: Manufacturing


The Houston manufacturing facility owned by Rinker (formerly CSR) Hydro Conduit is a world-class fully automated concrete pipe manufacturing plant, and the largest such facility in the United States. All aspects of the production and handling process are automated and computer-controlled, from the watching of concrete to the final testing of products, and even the cleaning of equipment. As a result, the design and construction of the facility had a degree of complexity and close tolerances unusual for a manufacturing facility.

The project consisted of a 60 acre site containing a regional headquarters office, a freestanding employee support facility, and two automated pipe plants, in addition to detention facilities, a concrete batch plant, and other site improvements. Subsequent to the completion of this facility, Rinker has continued to rely on W.M. Dillard and Associates for design and construction of additional improvements to this and other plants.

of Houston, the Heights Transit Center serves
as both a neighborhood landmark and a public transportation gateway for the surrounding community, The canopy structure, a contemporary reinterpretation of the great railroad stations of the past, covers a patterned concrete platform inlaid with circular "carpets" of rich colored brick pavers.

Custom steel trusses are expressed as aesthetic elements, and the roof and skylights are sculpted to provide visual emphasis for this public structure. The transit center's scale and character are sympathetic to the surrounding neighborhood. The canopy structure shares the site with an urban pocket park. Extensive landscaping, benches and park lighting define outdoor rooms and serve as a transition to the residential neighborhood.

This project was designed by Rey de la Reza Architects and constructed by W.M. Dillard& Associates. This is one of twelve projects built by W.M. Dillard & Associates for METRO.
