Teknion Corporation’s Dallas Showroom Receives LEED V4 Silver Certification and WELL Gold Certification
Teknion Corporation’s 652.5m² showroom in downtown Dallas has received an LEED V4 Silver Certification and WELL Gold Certification.
The Dallas showroom was designed to support health, well-being and sustainability to create a welcoming and productive workplace.
“The dual pursuit of LEED V4 and WELL made for a very complex project,” said Tracy Backus, Director, Sustainable Programs, Teknion. “The building was a LEED Certified space, which was strategic in our decision making. Also, the community and art district gave us an incredible opportunity to meet many of the concepts of WELL. A perfect marriage for our team.”
The showroom designed by Vanderbyl Design, with tvsdesign as the architect of record, includes the environmental elements of sunlight, cityscape, and natural materials to enhance the experience and mood of those in the space.
Teknion’s showroom blends a modern appeal of an open, fluid landscape, to conservative, formal footprints. Their interior style reveals the company’s insight into the most significant trends currently shaping office design.
One of these trends is recognizing the importance of creating an interior environment that connects humans to nature.
“With a focus on increased natural light, enhanced thermal comfort and rigorous attention to material ingredients and finish selection, we have a very satisfied internal customer and an incredible space to proudly share with our clients,” said Backus.
The free-flowing layout accommodates those individuals looking for private and interactive spaces where groups of people can come together.
Warmed by natural wood flooring and millwork, the showroom supports multiple functions, including collaborative or touchdown work. Teknion’s architectural glass wall systems create offices and conference rooms, while maintaining a sense of transparency and accessibility to natural light.
Located on the 16th floor of the 2323 Ross Ave. KPMG Plaza building, and surrounded by the Dallas Arts District and Klyde Warren Park, the showroom’s location was chosen to provide employees with a connection to the urbanization of a major city.
