AIA-SWO Construction Tour: Corporate Office Building

This month’s AIA-SWO Construction Tour features a 2-story, 12,900 square foot wood-framed corporate office building for a local timber and property management company. 
Robertson/Sherwood/Architects developed the design after extensive conversations with the client regarding its day-to-day workflow and internal operations in order to get the organization of work groups correct. Also key was gaining an understanding of how the company regarded itself as an organization and developing an aesthetic that fit with what the company wants to portray to the public. This included finding key opportunities for the display of wood products manufactured from trees harvested from its own forest lands and also special artwork and artifacts collected over the years. Overall, the design is meant to fit in with the surrounding larger corporate office buildings. The exterior utilizes brick, wood, and metal roofing. 
The project is following the design-build project delivery process.
