Internationally recognized architecture, engineering, and construction firm KAI Enterprises has announced its expansion with a new Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, Metroplex location that combines its Dallas, Texas, and Arlington, Texas, offices. KAI, one of the largest minority-owned AEC firms in the country, has operated an office in Dallas since 1999. In 2019, KAI expanded with the acquisition of Fratto Engineering, Inc., based in Arlington. KAI’s Texas staff continued to work between the two offices until the recent move to the Metroplex.
KAI’s new office is located in the vibrant neighborhood of Las Colinas. The three-story building is part of a multi-building complex constructed in the 1990s that features parking garages, covered parking stalls on the main parking lots, balconies, decks, lush landscape, and adjacent green/park space. The Las Colinas location also provides easy access to food, entertainment, and support amenities in the adjacent community. KAI’s new 12,000 sq.ft. office space presented an open layout, abundant natural light, plus unique outdoor patio and deck spaces.
Traditional workspace is immediately adjacent to the best natural light and organized in smaller work groups. The space also has a variety of spaces that foster team chemistry and personal interaction. The lobby serves as a multi-purpose space where visitors enter KAI, plus it provides a flexible companywide gathering forum, with indoor and outdoor space as well as a platform for community displays, exhibitions, and customer showcase opportunities.
