Kahler Slater was hired by Stevens Construction to design the contractor’s new corporate office building to reflect the company’s brand image. The headquarters includes 35 offices, expanded meeting and conference spaces, a training facility and other corporate support functions. It is efficient and straight forward. Although not overly adorned, it is sophisticated and executed at the highest level of quality.
Stevens Construction does all of its own concrete and carpentry work, and the public spaces inside the building showcase that craftsmanship. The Douglas-fir reception desk, board room table and paneling inside and outside of the board room were all custom built by Stevens Construction's carpenters. The building is set upon a concrete plinth of post tensioned concrete. On all sides, the building cantilevers out from the foundation wall -most dramatically at the front of the building, where the board room and other conference rooms are located. Stevens Construction wanted to highlight their expertise in this type of work.
