SWATTING OFFICE SPACE
Parmenter and Irving SWAT team
Don't know what to do with that empty floor of your building? The folks at Parmenter have been loaning a vacant 25k SF floor in Tower II at 225 E John Carpenter in Irving to the local SWAT team for training, Parmenter's Kelly Smith tells us. She's in the back (with colleague Tammy McQuirk in the front) wedged between some of Irving ?s finest. SWAT teams from Plano, Irving, Dallas, and Fort Worth have been using empty space in Parmenter buildings for past seven years. (If you've ever described a tough lease negotiation as a hostage situation, this is the tenant you want to be working with.)

In appreciation, the SWAT team sent several officers to an open house this summer when Ace Insurance sponsored bring your kids to work day. The SWAT team came not to shake down the children, but to educate them on emergency protocol. The tenants love the interaction and open communication over life safety and emergency situations, Kelly says. ?This saves the City of Irving costs related to renting outside facilities for training and also familiarizes them with our building and its systems.?
