Arlington General Contractor Begins 13,146 SF Tilt-Up Construction Facility in March

ARLINGTON, TEXAS - April 20, 2011 - General Contractor Bob Moore Construction has broken ground on the new construction of a treatment center in Dallas, Texas for Nexus Recovery Center, Inc.

Bob Moore Construction is the general contractor for this two-story, 13,146 square-foot tilt-up construction project. HKS Architects in Dallas, Texas is the architect and SWA in Dallas, Texas is the MEP consultant.

Construction began in March, 2012, with an estimated completion date in August 2012.

The new facility will serve as a treatment center for mothers and pregnant teens who are struggling with substance abuse and addictions. The first floor will house classrooms / meeting spaces for residential and outpatient treatment services, along with an administrative area for staff. The second floor will serve the patients receiving residential treatment, and will include 16 bedrooms, bathrooms and a lounge. The new Nexus Recovery Center will be located in Nexus Recovery Center's campus at 8733 La Prada Drive in Dallas.

"We're very proud to be part of a project that will do so much for our community," said J. Mark McLeod, Director of Construction Services for Bob Moore Construction. "Nexus Recovery Center has changed the lives of more than 20,000 women and their children over the past 40 years. The new treatment center will expand Nexus's capabilities with additional residential space and modernized classroom facilities, ensuring that this organization can improve their support for women and children in need in the coming years.

"From a construction perspective, we believe this project will serve as an outstanding example of what can be done with tilt-up construction," McLeod added. "Tilt-up can serve as an effective and cost-efficient approach for a broad range of buildings, including educational and medical-residential facilities like this one. We're excited to have this opportunity to deliver a superior building for the people with Nexus and showcase the great advantages that tilt-up provides."
