Carlson constructs a high-tech deal

Pact puts group on digital b'casting track

Carlson Group on Tuesday announced it had acquired Chicago-based Daniel Taylor & Associates, in a move that will enable the architectural firm to venture into the construction of high-tech facilities for the emerging digital broadcast market.

As part of the deal, Carlson will merge its operations of constructing core facilities for financial institutions and Internet service providers — for clients such as GTE, Qwest, Bank of America and Citibank — with DTA’s digital broadcast facility construction business.

The new subsidiary, to operate under the name DTA Carlson, will provide rapid response to help meet accelerated schedules for corporations planning to exploit the benefits of digital broadcasting for the Internet.

“The DTA Carlson convergence was envisioned to meet the increased need for facilities housing highly technical broadcast and communications operations,” said Ed Showalter, senior veep. “Just as banking and financial services are becoming indistinguishable, telecommunications, broadcast and the Internet are merging.”

Experience in the field

DTA has constructed digital broadcast facilities for such clients as ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox. It has already completed satellite facilities for American Sky Broadcasting and Sky Latin America and has begun construction on a 100,000 square-foot television station for KDVR-TV in Denver and a corporate headquarters broadcast facility for KCRG in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

“The FCC-mandated changeover to digital television broadcasting forces stations to face short planning deadlines,” said Daniel Taylor of DTA. “By providing full-service design and construction capabilities, we are better equipped to help broadcasters meet their tight time frames.”
