We helped create a modern, multi-tenant business park out of what was once the Dorris Gear Company manufacturing plant. Across three phases, we brought a fresh, new look that brings together form and function for the nearly 10-acre location. The Page Business Center project began as two companies looked to fully embrace corporate sustainability.

Building Smarter

We took the existing shell of the building, added large windows throughout and revamped the overall appearance of the entire location. In fact, even though we transformed this building and its use, we retained more than 90% of the original building structure. Beyond our green construction practices, we build sustainable features for the long-term use for our tenants, including rainwater collection and rooftop solar systems. All together, this approach allowed us to achieve LEED Gold certification for the new core and shell.

Landis+Gyr

One of the biggest goals in building a business park is meeting the needs of multiple businesses and industries. By focusing on creating an efficient, yet versatile construction, we continue to have happy tenants. In the first phase, we worked to meet the needs of Swiss electricity metering company, Landis+Gyr. As a global leader in smart metering systems that help the world manage energy better, they were a perfect fit for building green. For their commercial interior, this stage of the build also resulted in a LEED Gold certification.

Looking Ahead

As the Page Business Center continues to grow, we’re looking to build another LEED-certified flex building for the third phase of the area. Contact us today for more information

Staples

Our second tenant to move in, alongside Landis+Gyr, was Staples Promotional Products. For Staples, they noted that the sustainable features were instrumental in choosing a location at the Page Business Center. Our green practices continued for Staples, resulting in a LEED Platinum-certified commercial interior.

Midwest Testing

For the second phase at the Page Business Center, we started on a new construction for the 25,000-square-foot headquarters of Midwest Testing. This new facility works to accommodate their current office and lab space needs, and is built for expansion into a second floor as their business grows. Starting with Midwest Testing’s specifications, we incorporated green building practices to achieve LEED Silver certification. Throughout the build, Green Street acted as a fee-based developer to lead design-build efforts.

The building continues to perform “beyond expectations.”
