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!
Our design team realizes that a successful residential project is one that reflects the vision and spirit of its end user. We work closely with our clients to understand their lifestyles, movements and interests, habits and needs.
"A two-year-old building on University of Cincinnati's campus has been honored again for its design. UC’s Gardner Neuroscience Institute was awarded a gold Touchstone Award for Evidence Based Design and Research, the latest in a slew of honors received by the facility, which opened in 2019 and is home to UC Health."
The University of Cincinnati Gardner Neuroscience Institute has won the 2021 AIA Healthcare Design Award! Elevar worked in partnership with the renowned Perkins + Will on the FF&E design services portion of this project.
Many Cincinnati businesses are reconfiguring their spaces to encourage employees to return to the office. Among these building upgrades is the 1990's downtown landmark, the Scripps Center, of which Elevar has completed renovations to its lobby. Interior upgrades were made to the lighting and furniture, and all public areas were modernized.
Our team works to develop brand-appropriate design solutions that welcome visitors and maintain a high level of comfort throughout the duration of a stay. We strive to recreate a home-like atmosphere through thoughtful design practices, understanding how textures and colors evoke all of the feelings of the comforts of home.
Five Rivers Health Centers held a Topping Out Ceremony on May 25th to celebrate the last steel beam placed in the upcoming consolidated medical office building project! As the 10th largest Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in Ohio, Five Rivers provides access to quality, respectful care for their patients in and around the Dayton community.
Elevar is working on a new medical facility with services for both the University of Dayton community and the greater community, coming in summer 2022 on south Brown Street.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had little effect in generating new design thinking relative to workplace environments or products. Instead, the pandemic has accelerated the adoption of planning, design, cultural, operational, equipment, material, technological, custodial, and administrative norms for companies and their workplace.
Keeping up with the daily operations and maintenance costs of aging buildings and infrastructure is an ongoing challenge for many districts. In this paper we address common issues found in older academic buildings and identify ways to plan for and solve these issues in a way that improves building infrastructure, lowers operating costs, and mitigates financial loss.
Companies need spaces that are flexible to market need, adaptable to rapidly changing technologies, and responsive to executive operating strategies. Our design team uses a versatile response to business evolution.
Our healthcare design team is trained to appreciate both the experiential qualities of a caring atmosphere and the practical issues of servicing patients and clients with a variety of needs.
We elevate the game by contributing to our clients’ needs through smart design solutions. We intend to change what architects are for our clients and communities by measuring success in their terms. Our clients want a greater value for the investments they make in their facilities. Elevar delivers just that. We create beautiful spaces that take user experience to a higher level.
Ranked by the Cincinnati Enquirer for three years running as the Top Architecture Firm to work for in the City of Cincinnati, we are proud of our people and the work that we do.
With the COVID19 pandemic affecting how schools operate in 2020, we take a deep look into how Districts and their administrators can proactively plan so that students and staff can safely return to the classroom.
With the clients' goal to remain a Class A office building in the CBD in downtown Cincinnati, we are working on upgrades to the lobby, amenity spaces, fitness center, and security systems at the Scripps Center.
As the nation plans for the re-opening of the economy and transition of employees back into the workplace, Facility Managers should understand their role in keeping employees healthy. Our report examines how the workplace may be adapted to better protect employees from infectious disease.
Design solutions must be functional and also enhance the quality of life for those who occupy the space. In coordination with the building shell, design of the interior space must acknowledge the social context of the project and adhere to building codes and regulatory requirements.
Applying post-occupancy evaluations to future projects requires a strategy and a multidisciplinary team.
