The Trade Group

The Trade Group

The Trade Group, one of the nation’s leading event marketing and creative design firms, will soon occupy a new headquarters facility in Grapevine Texas. The new facility provides substantially more space than the company’s existing space and consolidates their operations, storage and offices into one facility. The two-story state-of-the-art global headquarters includes 185,000 square feet of office and warehouse space. Along with expanded space for graphics production, fabrication, staff offices, and the warehouse, the Grapevine facility includes an on-site café and modern, casual meeting spaces for employees. This new location allows for the building to expand by an additional 134,000 square feet, as they continue to grow.


First in Class

Our experience with Alliance Architects has been first in class. Not only are they great communicators and designers but they also understand the owner mentality when it comes to cost and schedule. They are able to balance the aesthetics with functionality which is a huge plus in the markets we work in. I would recommend Alliance Architects to small and large developers.

Exceeded Expectations

Although the partnership is relatively young, I feel our relationship is decades old. Their flow of information, responsiveness to our requests, and dynamic needs as a complex developer, have exceeded expectations. We could have not developed Star Business Park in Frisco, Texas at this rate of speed and success without this strategic partnership. We’re looking forward to what the future brings.

Partnerships Are What Matter

KEDC’s partnership with Alliance Architects has played a large role in bringing multiple high-caliber projects to the table. Alliance lends a sleek, modern aesthetic to their designs, adding a layer of polish to the distinctive curb appeal of Synergy Park. Carlos and the Alliance team are sensitive to unique project needs and are quick to address any concerns from our clients.

Designed a State of the Art Facility

The challenge was not only to raise the money but design and build a modern “client choice” pantry to serve this “food desert” community and to find someone to design and lead the construction. Not only did Alliance Architects step up, they designed a state of the art facility that is now serving hundreds of families who are no longer going to bed hungry. And they did it all “pro bono”.

In the 6 years I have had the pleasure of working with Chad and the Alliance team, I have found them to be competent, dedicated and experienced professionals.
