Cooper Industries Technology Overview

  • Cooper was looking for a design/build company that could deliver its project on time and within budget while providing high-end finishes, complicated product displays (including a mock power line running inside the building) and high-tech theatrical lighting, while maintaining an industrial feel.
  • KDW installed nine-foot ceilings, aluminum doors and sidelights.
  • The office flooring is a combination of VCT, carpet and ceramic tile.
  • The entire facility features various types of lighting and light fixtures to create a well-lit office environment, showroom, training facility and a place to entertain customers.
  • The entryway boasts a "History of Cooper" area with artifacts on display, and a wall dedicated to the history of Cooper Industries.
  • The lighting room has a split ceiling with ceiling tiles in the front to display Cooper's commercial line of light fixtures, and bar joists in the back to display their warehouse/industrial line of light fixtures.
  • A 32-circuit controller was added to all fixtures.
  • The auditorium features raised seating and circular tables for presentations. The room has 24-foot-wide coiling doors that open to the Vignette.
  • Phase III of the project consisted of 11,500 SF of display area for all Cooper divisions in various industrial applications.
  • The display is a full-size mock-up of a chemical plant with five areas of themes to display products.
  • The warehouse/assembly area has diamond hard flooring.
  • Due diligence design and permitting were completed in six weeks. Construction was completed in 2.5 months.

In 2013 WIKA Process Solutions LP and GAYESCO INTERNATIONAL LCC started working with the KDW team to design & build our brand new manufacturing facility on a 13 acre lot in the Pasadena ship channel area. From start (concept & initial renderings) to finish (January 2015 moving in) the KDW team supported us in every step of the way.

We could not have picked a better partner, to help us in establishing a productive plant in SW Houston. KDW met with us several times, to develop an understanding of our needs. Once understood, they incorporated our proven program with their local knowledge of Municipality, available Materials, Sub Contractors, and other Project Management Guidance.

JDR recently partnered with KDW on a build to suit lease for a purpose designed facility to support the growing needs of our expanding business. We could not have been more pleased with the support from their team and the seamless process from the front-end conceptualization phase to the final walkthrough. The integrated model KDW utilizes ensured that the end result met our business needs in line with the agreed budget. I would recommend KDW to anyone considering a new facility project due to their straightforward approach and outstanding level of service.
