Portfolio - Office Buildings / Office Spaces
Client: Isotech, Inc.
Description: Isotech Inc. contracted the Oregon Group Architects to create a building program and to prepare contract documents for a new 18,200 square foot administrative and industrial research facility in Miamisburg, Ohio. The primary goal of the project was to create a working environment that was both utilitarian and inviting. The managerial staff was cognizant of the fact that their employees’ personal and mental well being would significantly contribute to the growth and success of their company. The exterior appearance of the building was designed to convey a technological yet human image. Ample lobby and reception space created a welcoming feeling entering the building. Coffee and sitting areas were incorporated into the interior layout while picnic areas and green spaces were the theme for the site plan. The facility, designed primarily as an industrial research center, organizes the administrative functions with the research and development functions as distinct, but integrated elements.
Client: Bushnell Investments
Description: Bushnell Investment Group retained Oregon Group Architects to provide professional design services for the renovation of the third, fourth and fifth floors of the Bushnell Building in downtown Springfield. The building is on the Register of Historic Places and faces the downtown fountain plaza. The 25,000 SF fourth floor contains corporate offices and a call center space for the insurance claim management company HSG / Code Blue. The existing open floor plan was completely redesigned to accommodate the new tenant while preserving the historically significant fabric of the building. The third and fifth floors were prepared for future expansion of the Code Blue call center.
Client: Laforsch Orthopedics
Description: Oregon Group Architects designed this new structure on a tight urban site in the old North Dayton area. The facility combined manufacturing, retail sales, professional administrative offices, prosthesis research and development laboratories as well as the corporate headquarters for LaForsch Orthopedic. Flexibility of interior spaces was a critical aspect of the design due to the varied functions within. The main areas were designed to operate independently of the others, yet are arranged around the central administrative offices allowing easy communication between researchers, manufacturers and administrators. The owner was committed to maintaining the integrity of the surrounding neighborhood and wanted to convey an image of professionalism and quality. The exterior design incorporates stone and brick complimenting several nearby buildings and reinforcing the language of the street.

Valued at $110,000,000, these structures terrace down a hillside just west of the Columbus urban core- overlooking I-70. Fast tracked, each package was designed and bid prior to the completion of the overall building design. Oregon Group worked closely with both the architects and engineers to meet all the Ohio Building Code requirements.
