DALLAS/FT WORTH - In a half century, Hill & Wilkinson has steadily grown from a small business to a respected industry leader providing a full range of services in a variety of markets. From a simple maintenance project to the design-build of a fast-track facility, Hill & Wilkinson delivers projects with an attitude of service and accountability.



    The firm was founded in 1968 by Luther Hill, a longtime member of the Dallas construction community, and subsequently bought by Greg Wilkinson and Fritz McKinstry in 1985. Hill & Wilkinson is now in its third generation leadership under the direction of Paul Driscoll, CEO, and Mike Oswald, COO.  
    FOURTEEN555 is the first of two-plan-ned office buildings and combines high-end finishes and efficient floor plates with unique amenities. The project involved new construction on a 240,000sf Class A
office building and includes a four-level pre-cast parking garage with top-level shade structures. A full-service restaurant, fitness center, rooftop terrace, courtyard area with fire pits and other amenities are housed in a separate three-story building called The Hub. The building is primarily built with concrete tilt walls, structural steel and steel stud framing and plaster.     
    The stacked-panel structure and façade, which is not typical tilt-wall construction adds a unique feature to the project. In addition, The Hub amenities building is also very unique, giving individuals easy access to a workout facility while also providing multiple options for group activities in the courtyard or in the open-air third- floor entertainment space.
    Despite 65-plus inclement weather days during critical periods of construction, the project ran smoothly thanks to the project’s onsite team, strong owner and architect.
    The working relationship with owner and architect had a positive impact on the completion of FOURTEEN 555. The team that owner Cawley Partners put together for the completion of the project worked vey well together. Project Manager Kyle Swenor and Project Superintendent Tom Syverson worked closely with Architect-BOKA Powell. Their close-knit communication allowed for timely responses and attention to inevitable changes that arose with any project of this size. As a result, the project, which began in May 2017, was completed in July 2018.
        Hill & Wilkinson is a full-service general contractor in Richardson, TX. -cmw
