Titletown Office Tenant – Miron Construction Moves In

Performa was engaged to help plan and design a new commercial office development and parking structure in the Titletown District adjacent to Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers. The 160,000 square foot Titletown Office building has six floors on top of 350 podium parking stalls and features outdoor plazas, a rooftop terrace and gameday activity rooms. The new office bookends the west end of the entire development and will house 5-8 tenants.

One of these tenants is the contractor, Miron Construction. Performa was engaged to design their 17,000 square foot office buildout, which occupies a portion of the third floor. The new space is industrial yet modern, showcasing steel, rebar, cast concrete, wood, and other materials that reflect materials commonly used in the construction industry. The design takes advantage of the amazing Lambeau Field with views unobstructed by the open floor plan. A resident (employee) zone and guest zone are divided by a rotating pillar wall, a unique element co-developed by a mechanical partner, Tweet Garot. This is the contractor’s sixth satellite office and provides them the opportunity to put down roots in Green Bay, in the heart of Titletown. Take a look inside this new space.

We are honored to give purpose the space to thrive for Miron’s newest satellite office!

To Build or Not to Build?

Four Things to Consider with Urgent Space Needs

If your original plans to construct a new facility (or renovate an existing one) have been put on hold, you’re not alone. While there is always uncertainty and risk surrounding business planning and facility investments, the past year has brought a greater sense of urgency and importance in how we respond to facility needs. No matter your circumstances, pain points like the ones below haven’t evaporated; they may have simply shifted.

  1. Our facility feels old and needs major repairs.
  2. We’re out of space and it no longer serves our operation and the way we work.
  3. Many of our employees are now working remotely, freeing up space. However, it’s revealing other needs.
  4. Construction cost escalations and long lead times have us second-guessing whether now is the right time to build.

Doing nothing is now riskier than ever. A little planning can go a long way in uncovering and addressing the most important issues to you. Read the full blog post on our website to learn about these strategies to consider with urgent space need decisions.

CASE STUDY

Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin Family & Community Engagement Center

FACE Center – Family and Community Engagement Center
A multi-generational community center to gather, celebrate, engage, and build a culture of health for all generations. This is the purpose behind the new FACE Center for the Menominee Indian Tribe of WI (MITW).

The Challenge

For youth and elders alike, nutrition, fitness, social connection, and health issues are key challenges. This project needed to create a location and a place for the Tribe to share stories, encourage healthy lifestyles, transmit language, culture, and build stronger relationships.

The Transformational Outcome

The 64,000 SF building is designed around indoor and outdoor spaces large enough for concurrent events to engage the community. No space is seen with only a single purpose:  the two NCAA regulation-size basketball courts can be broken down into four smaller courts for basketball, volleyball, and more. Bleacher seating for 800, combined with additional floor seating, provides the Menominee Tribe with its largest indoor facility for sporting events, pow wows, and other celebrations. An indoor running track, spacious fitness center, seminar spaces, fitness rooms, a youth recreation room, and offices for the Youth Development Organization department make the building a central activity hub for community members of all ages. The design is laser-focused on helping each person elevate their purpose by providing an opportunity for everyone to have equal access to a state-of-the-art facility and to each other. The youngest youth have a small indoor playground, runners and walkers have a three-lane running track, while seminar and youth spaces are available for kids to do schoolwork, and the community to meet both in person and via technology with other Tribal members who live or work remote. Every element supports mind and body engagement.
One of the clients’ project champions says it all: “we have really built something special for ourselves, a building our people and community deserve”. Performa is honored to have helped the Menominee community give the purpose of this center the space to thrive.
