Dohler North American Headquarters

Dohler North American Headquarters

Cartersville, GA

 

CROFT developed a schematic building design and campus master plan for the new five story North American headquarters facility for the Doehler Corporation of Darmstadt, Germany.

Design and master planning efforts included a design charrette, site study, adjacency diagram, architectural floor plan, and site design for an 96,000 SF corporate headquarters facility and campus.  The 26-acre campus master plan will require the phased-relocation of research and development functions from existing facilities, datacenter operations, and the integration of a highly sustainable, state-of-the-industry headquarters facility into a campus with active production operations.

Interim renovations have been made to the existing 200,000 SF facility to facilitate administrative, research and development, datacenter, and manufacturing operations until completion of the project. Croft provided full A/E design and construction manager as-advisor services to support cost estimating, design, phasing, RFP development, construction inspection, project budgeting, OAC meetings, and review of construction invoices.

Cobb County Civic Center


Cobb County Civic Center

Marietta, GA

 

Cobb's Board of Commissioners engaged CROFT to give a complete face-lift to its aging Cobb County Civic Center.  Since its construction in 1972, the Civic Center had been one of the premier venues for high school sports, graduations, craft fairs, art exhibits, gun shows, and Special Olympics activities in metro-Atlanta.  CROFT led the architectural, interior, and engineering design for a $5.7 million expansion and renovation that transformed the Civic Center into a sleek, modern, multi-functional space that will serve Cobb County for generations to come.

CROFT has been selected for several design projects for Cobb County. Our experience shows that their architectural designs are attractive, with nice finishes and attention to detail, while keeping within our established construction budgets. Their cost estimates have been quite accurate, yielding no major surprises when the sealed bids come in.

Acworth Police Headquarters

Acworth Police HeadquartersAcworth, Georgia
 

To say that the headquarters of the Acworth Police Department (APD) was small and outdated would be grossly understating the challenges the old facility created for department personnel. Since 1995, the APD has served the Acworth community from a converted cabinet shop, whose 5,000 square feet were ill suited for a modern police headquarters. And so, “by the grace of God and the blessing of the taxpayers,” according to Police Chief Wayne Dennard, the department moved into a beautiful new facility, designed by CROFT, and optimized for the staff and the public safety services they provide.


CROFT’s master plan provided a way for the department to meet their needs while staying within budget. The plan included small renovation strategy in lieu of demolition – such as the repurposing of an existing 3,000 square feet cable network building - that reduced the budget by more than $1 million, while still delivering all the features on the department’s wish list.

Veterans Memorial Park

Veterans Memorial Park

Dallas, Georgia

 

CROFT provided full architectural, structural, MEP engineering, and construction administration support for the development of a 3,000 person outdoor amphitheater and public park venue in Dallas, GA. This outdoor concert and park facility creatively integrated unused space between the Paulding County government complex and US Highway 278 to provide a passive park facility with amenities to serve residents of all ages.

By converting unused acreage around a large existing facility, the CROFT / Lowe design team developed a park concept that not only minimized the cost of maintenance but allowed the existing parking infrastructure around the government complex to become a 7‐day a week asset to serve the citizens of Paulding County. The facility was designed to support two simultaneous large outdoor events and to take advantage of the extensive road network that supports the government complex to support traffic flow in/out of the park. Dedicated to area veterans, the park is outfitted with patriotic‐themed signage as well as architectural elements reminiscent of historic Paulding County.

Wheeler High School

Wheeler High School

Cobb County Schools
Marietta, GA 30060
 

CROFT provided full A/E design for the addition of two new facilities at the densely developed Wheeler High School campus in East Cobb. The 35,000 SF West addition sited carefully to the rear of campus consists of a 750 seat performing arts center, pre-function space, and new classroom facilities. The 65,000 SF south addition includes a new 3,000 seat sports arena, classrooms, locker rooms, indoor running track, staff offices, viewing platforms, and pre-function area tied into existing core areas and staff parking area. The final portion included a new fieldhouse, stadium seating, outdoor lighting, concession stand, and track and tennis court resurfacing.

CROFT carefully developed a site master plan, A/E design, and multi-step construction phasing and laydown plan that allowed the integration of these two new facilities into an existing 2,300 student campus without disruption of classes or extracurricular functions. The new state-of-the-art venues integrate seamlessly into pre-established building elements and adjacencies on campus and are the new prototype for high school performing arts and athletic facilities throughout Cobb County.


ADDITIONS ON HIGHLY CONSTRAINED SITE

The $14 million West addition and $10 million south addition were master planned, designed, and built simultaneously with high community involvement in the master plan. CROFT’s master plan included a cost-benefit analysis to evaluate both material and constructibility options to maximize value and minimize the impact on the school during construction. While maintaining existing parking capacity, CROFT integrated new sports infrastructure into the project to reduce overall cost. As two story additions, both have been incorporated seamlessly into an existing split-level site plan and improve ADA access.
