Project Completion: OHM Building – Columbia, Missouri

July 08, 2015

On June 4th, 2015 our team attended the open house for the 12,000 square foot OHM Building in Columbia, Missouri. The building has three suites to house Simon Oswald Architects (SOA), CM Engineering, and a lease space that is currently occupied by Working Spaces, an office furniture company.

SOA and CM Engineering have worked together for many years so this building is an extension of their relationship. Professional Contractors & Engineers had the privilege of acting as the general contractor on the build of this energy-efficient building.

About this green building (facts from CM Engineering website):

  • It only costs them about $34 per day to operate the 12,000 square feet
  • Roof and wall insulation exceed most industry standards
  • Windows and skylights have been designed for minimal thermal conductivity
  • Utilizing LED lighting, skylights, and motion detectors so that lighting energy isn’t wasted
  • Harvesting rainwater to supplement gray water and irrigation needs
  • “By far the biggest energy savings comes from our one-pipe, closed loop, ground source geothermal exchange HVAC system. With it, we’re able to remove excess heat energy from the indoor environment in warm months. This energy is stored in the ground until cooler months when it can be re-introduced to the building”

We knew from the outset that undertaking a major addition, renovation and remodel to our 100+ year old sorority house, and doing it all while still having residents live-in, would not be an easy task. Fortunately, our choice to partner with PCE and Project Manager, Andy Bonderer, has been one of the best decisions we have made. We interviewed other contractors for the job, and they certainly tried to convince us that they were the preferred builder for Greek housing. But ultimately, it came down to finding a construction partner who would work with us to manage the unique complexities of the job and be just as invested in achieving an exceptional outcome as we were. Andy, Matt, and the whole PCE project team have been terrific. When we plan future construction projects, we would certainly seek out a partnership with PCE first.

PCE has been not only responsive and attentive, but proactive in anticipating issues with our project.

I trust that Andy, Matt and PCE have the owner’s best interest in mind as they work with the other professionals on our construction project.

PCE has kept me, a project manager located in another city, updated and informed – getting my input and opinion on decisions when necessary and making my job easier by presenting clear explanations and alternatives when we are faced with an issue.
