Two years ago, we embarked on a journey with Five Rivers Health Centers to plan and design a new, consolidated medical office building in Edgemont, a neighborhood in Dayton, OH. Through the COVID19 pandemic, working virtually as necessary and in-person once safe to do so, our team collaborated with Five Rivers and their partners to realize the vision of bringing quality healthcare to all those who need it in the community, regardless of income level. On May 11th, we cut the ribbon on this important new facility, celebrating this exciting day with all of the project partners, the staff at Five Rivers, and members of the community!
“We wanted to be in a place where we could make an impact...We wanted to be in a place that improved our efficiency and effectiveness and made a statement about who we are, what we stand for and what we believe in.”
Our planning work with Kroger resulted in the renovations of several of their corporate offices, to include Plaza II in Blue Ash, OH. The two-story office building, constructed in 1980, functioned without an elevator until recent workplace re-organizations prioritized the need. Previous renovation projects attempted to incorporate traditional interior core construction, but the loss of usable area and negative impact to the schedule and budget eliminated it each time. In order to keep the project on schedule and align with budget, our team designed a new, prefabricated hydraulic elevator situated on the exterior of the building near the main entrance.
