Messer asked us to design a building that speaks to what they do. We listened, and we executed. After moving into their new facility, employees remarked how comfortable and at home they felt. The experiential graphic design throughout the facility helped to tie the entire space together. Now, their headquarters makes an impact on everyone who walks through the front door.
The building is a showcase for Messer.
Messer enlisted BHDP to design a new, innovative space that would infuse their brand throughout their Cincinnati office. With a lack of branding, color, and inspiration in their former space, this change was not only necessary but long overdue. As an employee-owned company, Messer wanted to provide employees with a workspace they can feel proud of and be excited to come to work every day. They challenged BHDP to deliver an inviting and modern space that expresses their brand while echoing their passion as a successful company.
This two-story, 50,000 SF building blends an open office layout with exposed ceilings and mechanical systems to create a unique work experience. The building gives a nod to construction, specifically the concrete work that Messer is known for. Their rich heritage of turning challenges into triumphs is displayed in several graphic and physical elements throughout the office and begins right when someone walks through the door.
The project was completed on schedule, on budget, achieved LEED Gold certification, and included 38% M/WBE participation. More than 35% of the total construction was built by Messer’s own craft force, and the project was completed with zero injuries.
