WatchGuard Video Constructs Corporate Headquarters In Allen, Texas

WatchGuard Video, and market leader for law enforcement video systems and evidence-management software, started construction on a $47 million corporate headquarters in Allen, Texas.

At its new corporate campus, 23.6 miles north of Dallas, the company will design, engineer and manufacture body cameras and in-car video systems.

The build-to-suit project was designed by GFF Architects and will be located east of I-75 at the intersection of East Exchange and Allen Station Parkway. The facility will be constructed in two phases totaling 200,000 square feet of office and manufacturing space. Once completed, the facility will accommodate upwards of 700 employees.

Adolfson & Peterson has been tapped as the General Contractor for the first phase of the project, scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2018. Phase 1 will be a two-story, 140,000-square-foot facility at an expected investment of $37 million. The second phase will add 60,000 square feet with a $10 million investment forecast to be complete in 2022.

According to company officials, with the intent of attracting and retaining a talented workforce, WatchGuard's new headquarters will include open group areas for collaboration and training, spacious outdoor recreation space, an indoor racquetball court, gym, and a health clinic for employees and their families. It will also include a 'customer experience room' that will allow demonstrations of the company's products thru multimedia and immersive technologies.
