CVDA was retained by EwingCole, a Philadelphia-based architectural firm, to assist them with the master plan and site planning for the new North American headquarters of Olympus Imaging Corporation. CVDA was involved in the design of the project from the beginning. Based upon severe site constraints, CVDA developed a site plan that maximized the building’s orientation to focus on the site’s 9 acre lake and woodlands. The site plan and garden themes reflected the company’s Japanese origins while expressing a modern technological theme. The site plan incorporates three separate entrances: the formal entrance with art forms that feature the transformation of glass in technology, the garden entrance to the park and gardens, and the separate service entrance that buffers the site from the adjacent interstate highway. A playground for the on-site day care, concrete work-out surfaces and bike lockers were also included. CVDA was retained by Butz Construction Company to develop the site as a design/build project, and to oversee the completion of the project.
