  • Design services for a 121-lot residential land development featuring a gateway to the Valley Ranch community in Irving, Texas.
  • Valley Ranch, a community of nearly 30,000 residents and home of the Dallas Cowboys, will have monumental signage and features along a major entry.
  • Vertical monuments scaled for high-speed traffic, will feature a stylized repetition of the Valley Ranch logo.
  • Located on either side of Valley Ranch Parkway, the residential development will be enhanced with a small neighborhood park and connection to the City of Irving's Campion Trail  system running along the nearby West Fork of the Trinity River.
  • To ease water use, the landscape design  utilizes large drifts of drought tolerant ornamental grasses.

  • Located on a parcel of land adjacent to Grapevine Springs Park, a beautiful tract of land developed in 1936 as part of the Federal Work Projects Administration (WPA), which features stone retaining walls, bridges, and picnic facilities.
  • DCBI, working with architect, sited the building, parking lots and entry drives in such a way to minimize impact to existing trees while taking advantage of their shade and wind break potential.
  • Designed under the city's "green initiative", the building has Silver LEED certification and has a seamless connection to the park with trails, outdoor seating areas, bioswales, and a palette of native, drought tolerant plantings.
