HOUSTON-A Nashville-based engineering firm has added 6,815 sf to take the office area to 30,996 sf in the West 8 Tower in the Westchase submarket of Houston.

Smith Seckman Reid Inc. is two years into a long-term lease for 10205 Westheimer Rd., Jim Bailey in the Houston office of Cushman & Wakefield of Texas Inc. tells GlobeSt.com. The firm also committed for the long term to the extra class A space, says Bailey, the tenant’s representative.
