raSmith provided comprehensive due diligence and site design services for a new 194,665-square-foot corporate office building in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. raSmith worked extensively with the client and architect to analyze and qualify the site for suitability for the development. raSmith also worked collaboratively with the design team to locate the building and develop the site plan for the corporate campus. Services provided by raSmith included site analysis, surveying, site planning, site work engineering, landscape architecture, hardscape design, and ecological services.
The site was very complex due to its close proximity to Lake Butte des Morts. The challenges of the site included working with the fluctuating lake water elevation, meeting existing utility locations, working within the demands of the local design code constraints, and meeting the expectations of the owner and design team. Each challenge was met with a successful solution.
The corporate headquarters is located at US 41 and Hwy 21 just south of Lake Butte des Morts, which was the former site of the Lake Shore golf course.
