The Projects Group was established in 2002 by Vicki Dickerson after many years of working for Sundance Square Management in Fort Worth, where she managed the implementation of their masterplan development. During her time at Sundance Square, Vicki led the development of some of downtown’s most complex projects, including Bass Performance Hall, the Sid Richardson Museum, the Sundance West development, and the Sundance East development.
After forming The Projects Group, Vicki and her staff expanded outside Fort Worth to manage such projects as The Carpenter Theatre in Richmond, Virginia, The Smith Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, and The Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, New York, all the while continuing to provide services to Sundance Square and the community of Fort Worth. Additional projects followed, including Dickies Arena, the Plaza in Sundance Square, The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame (our first museum project, delivered in 2002), the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, and The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, among others.
In 2015, Vicki transitioned her ownership in The Projects Group to a 100% Employee Owned Company (ESOP), thereby ensuring that the firm’s long-term legacy would continue. In 2019, Brandon Elms assumed the role as the firm’s President, and Vicki continues to serve as Chairman of the Board.
Today, the firm is widely recognized around the United States as one of the premier project management firms for cultural and performing arts facilities. Our projects are unique, architecturally significant, and highly technical in their operational function, and most consist of a complex blend of team members, including clients, architects, engineers, general contractors, specialty consultants, subcontractors, and vendors, as well as federal, state, and local government representatives.
