OHIO STATE HIGHWAY PATROL
SOUTH POINT POST 44

The new 6,000 square foot building houses the Post 44 Headquarters in Lawrence County Ohio. The building program includes administrative offices for the post commander and sergeant, secure gun and evidence storage, a locker room with shower and changing areas, a 450 square foot training and public meeting room, three vehicle sallyport and a central dispatch room.

Designed with sustainable building materials and methods the project is registered with the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Certification program. The building has a LEED Silver certification.
OAKWOOD CREW QUARTERS
Client: City of Oakwood
Description: The City of Oakwood, in an effort to upgrade its Municipal Building while improving officer morale and comfort, hired Oregon Group to redesign and renovate the section of the building housing the safety officers. No renovation of this space had occurred in almost twenty-five years. Changes in operations procedures had demanded greater utilization of the space and the employment of female officers demanded reorganization of spaces. The Oregon Group, with Kimmel Meyer Associates, developed plans to revitalize the building's interior spaces. New air conditioning and ventilation systems were designed and ceilings lowered to accommodate new ductwork. The extremely tight urban site and pitched slate roof allowed no space for mechanical equipment. To compensate, new decks were built above grade to house equipment. Internal spaces were redesigned. New finishes were selected, appropriate for an active safety department. New toilet and shower rooms were designed as well as the sleeping dormitory.
MIAMI VALLEY RTA TRANSIT PAVILION
Client: City of Dayton
Description: Oregon Group designed the new RTA Pavilion, located on a once vacant historic site at the center of Downtown Dayton. The building is a tiny jewel among the many urban structures. Designed not to compete with, but to reflect its surroundings; the clear anodized skin, mirrors the color and motion that is such a part of the urban landscape. At night it's glass walls glow with the lights of the street vendor and ticket sales. It is not so much a building, as it is a place. Pedestrians walk in, through and around the two pods connected by the sixty foot tower complete with four clock faces, chimes, and seasonal music.
DAYTON SECOND DISTRICT POLICE HEADQUARTERS
Client: City of Dayton Engineering Dept.
Description: The Oregon Group Architects was retained by the City of Dayton to design the first new city police neighborhood headquarters building in 20 years. The new facility included classrooms, locker areas, a weight/exercise room and administrative areas. An integrated design was essential, gracefully placing the building in an existing residential neighborhood and interfacing with the adjacent fire station. This project was awarded the 'Award of Merit - Excellence in Masonry' from The Masonry Institute of Dayton.
OHIO STATE HIGHWAY PATROL DISTRICT 5 HQ
Client: Ohio Department of Public Safety
Description: The District 5 Headquarters and Piqua Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol began as a renovation project. The Oregon Group Architects was retained by the State of Ohio to lead the renovation effort. As the program developed it was determined that the existing facility was completely inadequate and a new facility should be constructed. The new 9,270 square foot building houses the District 5 Headquarters which is the administrative command center for over ten counties in Southwest Ohio. The local Piqua Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is also housed in this facility. The program for the two functions demanded separate zones of activity with certain shared functions including a locker room with shower and changing areas, a 450 square foot training and public meeting room, and a central dispatch room. HVAC systems were split to accommodate the various functions and to afford energy efficiency.
BOMBERGER TEEN CENTER
Client: City of Dayton Dept. of Parks & Leisure
Description: Oregon Group Architects was retained by the City of Dayton Department of Parks and Leisure to renovate an existing teen center in Dayton’s old east side. The renovation was to create a showcase teen center for the City of Dayton. A complex program was developed after meetings with administrators, teens and neighborhood groups. All interior spaces and circulation patterns were reorganized including a new handicap accessible entry with elevator. A new HVAC system, doors, windows, landscaping and interior finishes completed a multifaceted renovation project. Hazardous materials including vinyl asbestos tile and asbestos insulation were identified and abated. Design work was also coordinated with a roof replacement and structural stabilization.
LOGAN COUNTY ODOT FACILITY
Client: Office of the State Architect
Description: Our working relationship with ODOT continued with the design of the new Logan County Maintenance Facility. The facility was similar in size, 28,000 SF, and construction to the Montgomery County and Hamilton County garages. Our work involved completion of construction documents and continued with administering the Bidding and Construction Phases of the project. OGA was responsible for the orderly progress of the work utilizing a critical path schedule. Two separate prime contractors were on the site with the general contractor acting as the lead. The new facility combines spaces for ODOT truck washing, maintenance and storage with district offices and dispatch. A gasoline fueling station, an emergency generator, and monopole are included.
