Monitronics International, Inc.

Farmers Branch, Texas

The Monitronics headquarters is a the 3-story, 169,000-square-foot built-to-suit located on 14 acres near Wittington Place and Senlac Drive, on the eastern shore of what’s known as Mercer Crossing Lake. Monitronics is one of the largest residential security providers in the nation and has seen rapid growth in its operations. That growth led to the company's decision to move to a larger facility in the 225-acre business park in Farmers Branch. The company is planning to grow quickly through acquisitions and currently employs 800, but expects to have 1,360 employees on board by 2020.

A second, 26-acre phase of the office campus would add three buildings, each about 200,000 square feet in size. These facilities would overlook the lake, which has been expanded, with surface parking extended to the east. Binkley & Barfield provided site engineering design of the 169,000 sf 3-story building with associated parking (8 spaces/1,000 sf), grading, drainage and utilities and jurisdictional approvals.
