Grant Thornton has moved its Dallas office within the Comerica Bank Tower to accommodate its growth ambition. According to the firm, the new office will allow its employees to better serve its clients in the region, as well as reduce its carbon footprint.
Professional services firm Grant Thornton US has relocated its Dallas office within the Comerica Bank Tower at 1717 Main Street. The firm moved from the 14th and 15th floors to the 17th and 18th floor. The firm occupies the 12th floor of the building, totalling the office space to 60,560 square feet. The new office has been designed with a focus on better space utilisation and reflects the consulting firm’s effort to reduce its carbon footprint by incorporating a more efficient layout, access to natural light, increased multi-purpose space and more effective collaboration rooms.
400 Grant Thornton employees moved into the new Dallas space that is able to accommodate more than 500 employees, highlighting the firm’s ambition to grow in the region. Wally Gruenes, Office Managing Partner of Grant Thornton’s Dallas practice, explains: “This move reinforces Grant Thornton’s continued commitment to the firm’s growth in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. Our new space will enhance employee collaboration and innovation, allowing us to better serve our current and future growth-oriented clients in the area.” For Grant Thornton, this is the third office expansion in a short period of time to accommodate its growth. Last year, the firm made two expansions in its Metro New York and New England Practice. A new office in Stamford of 6,300 square feet was opened, to house around 50 employees, and just shortly after, the firm expanded its Long Island office to 16,811 square feet, to house 125 employees.
Grant Thornton is not the only firm expanding its footprint in the Dallas region. Just last month, consulting firm Point B opened an office in Dallas, its eight in the US, to serve clients in the area.
