The Origins Building stands as one of the oldest structures on the client’s World Headquarters campus. Over its history the structure has served many functions, housing corporate offices, research and development facilities, pilot plant, production plant offices and an employee health and wellness center. In its current incarnation, the building houses the offices of the client’s organic and natural product lines. In keeping with the current program and occupants, this LEED-Certified facility showcases the client’s commitment to sustainability.
Domokur Architects provided design and construction management services to renew and refresh the facility while still maintaining the historic, core building fabric. Continuous air and moisture barrier, continuous insulation, face brick veneer and energy efficient doors and windows provide a new building envelope. Reclaimed wood countertops, and other recycled and/or regional materials were selected to actively demonstrate the client’s commitment to sustainability. Interior glass partitions, transmit abundant natural daylight to the interior portions of the building. New air distribution systems, LED lighting, water conserving plumbing fixtures and building control automation system minimize the consumption of utility resources.
