Vistra Energy

the backstory

Vistra Energy, including the TXU Energy and Luminant Energy companies, is a corporate consolidation and a workplace transformation project involving 18 business units and 19 sub units. The project included planning strategies to vacate an existing property in downtown Dallas and co-locate 1,200 employees to this Irving, Texas location

Completed 2017
225,000 SF

Vistra Energy experienced tremendous growth through several acquisitions and was in need of a workplace makeover consistent with its new brand and corporate culture goals. 


SLAM assisted Vistra in a new property search and building analysis that led to the decision to co-locate 1200 staff into an underutilized 225,000 SF leased property on three floors.


SLAM offered many planning and space efficacy options to optimize the very finite space of the existing building. The design focused on optimization of existing assets, such as the three story atrium and comfortable workstation sizes, and implementation of new functions, amenities, and destinations – a new trade floor, a large work cafe, tech support kiosk, and multi use board room. New work place standards were designed for those functions which would most benefit from the change. Company values of teamwork, unity and assurance were introduced in vibrant colors complimenting the Vistra brand.
