McAdams Engineering To Relocate Lewisville Office to The Realm at Castle Hills

The North Carolina-based multidisciplinary design and engineering firm has a 30-year tradition in Lewisville, specializing in site/civil design, planning and design, transportation, water resources, and geomatics.

Civil engineering firm McAdams is moving its Lewisville office to Bright Realty’s The Realm at Castle Hills development, a location the company believes better reflects its transformative growth into a leading regional brand.

McAdams is a North Carolina-based multidisciplinary design and engineering firm specializing in site/civil design, planning and design, transportation, water resources, and geomatics.

“This move is another opportunity for us to showcase our collaborative and innovative culture,” McAdams Regional VP Bobby Dollak said in a statement. “We’re creating a space that not only inspires creativity, collaboration and growth among our entire team, but also propels us to a new level of success.”

Attracting and retaining top-tier talent

The location sits off State Highway 121 overlooking Lewisville Lake.

The 30,000-square-foot office will allow McAdams to nearly double the size of its team, the company said.

Its new location features dedicated work, meeting, and “We” spaces, and McAdams said the new environment will promote a culture of collaboration while aiding its objective to attract and retain top-tier industry talent.

Gensler, the architecture, design and planning firm leading the buildout, said the plan is to create an environment that sparks positive change and promotes flexibility, productivity, and shared purpose among the McAdams team.

Mixed-use amenities

The Realm at Castle Hills offers numerous amenities, including walkable retail options, restaurants, and single and multifamily residential communities.

“We’re thrilled that McAdams has selected The Realm as their new home,” Lucas Patterson, EVP of commercial operations at Bright Realty, said in a statement. “Our vision has always been to create a mixed-use environment that would allow businesses to grow and employees to thrive.”

Completion of the new space is expected in the fall.

Until then, McAdams’ team of roughly 65 employees will continue to office at 111 Hillside Drive and at 201 Country View Drive in Roanoke.

Strategic solution to stay in Lewisville near its projects

McAdams has a 30-year tradition in Lewisville. Its strategic decision to stay within city limits serves to strengthen relationships with surrounding communities, particularly within Collin and Denton Counties, the firm said.

The region is currently a hub for mixed-use developments and master-planned communities, including McAdams’ projects such as Furst Ranch, Anna and Weston Lagoon Communities, and the River Walk at Central Park and Lakeside Crossing in Flower Mound.

“It’s difficult to imagine a Lewisville without McAdams,” Lewisville City Manager Claire Powell said in a statement. “They’ve always been exceptional corporate citizens, fully engaged with and invested in our community. Working with the McAdams team has always been seamless, and we couldn’t ask for a better partnership.”

Founded in 1979, McAdams is headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina, with offices in Durham and Charlotte, North Carolina, in addition to its Dallas-Fort Worth offices.

More than 400 professionals comprise McAdams’s workforce. The company says it is passionate about providing unique and engaging experiences for its clients and its clients’ clients as well.
