One of Dallas’ largest interior architectural design firms will more than double its space at One McKinney Plaza in the uptown submarket.

The pact will consolidate the IS-Dallas staff into 6,400 sf on one floor instead of occupying space on two floors at 3232 McKinney Ave. Bob Deering, managing principal of IA-Dallas, says the firm’s architectural staff has grown by 350%. The firm specializes in workplace solutions in terms of design, management and strategies. Its client roster includes a number of Fortune 1000 companies and cutting-edge, fast-growth businesses. The five-year-old IA-Dallas, regional office for parent IA Inc., is consistently been ranked among the largest metroplex interior architectural firms based on gross revenues.

IA-Dallas has orchestrated the redesign of its new office space. “That was strange at times ­ we can be a pretty demanding client,” Deering says. “We went back and forth on many issues, and we constantly debated the Texas theme we chose in the materials we used ­ you know, Texas pecan wood, Texas stone, blue bonnet-shaded lights. But we are extremely pleased with what we have done.”

Arledge/Power Real Estate Services represented IA in its lease negotiations and Gaedeke Landers LLC acted on behalf of the landlord.
