ReArch to Build OnLogic’s New Headquarters in South Burlington, VT
ReArch Company announced its upcoming development and construction project for global industrial computer hardware manufacturer OnLogic. The $50 Million, 125,000 SF global headquarters will be prominently located along I-89, beside the whales’ tails at Technology Park, a premier business park in South Burlington, VT.
OnLogic’s new expansion is necessary to accommodate their continued growth and will house its manufacturing, warehousing, testing facilities, and all other business operations to support the production of their small form factor, industrial computers. Roland Groeneveld, OnLogic Co-Founder and Executive Chair, comments, “After an extensive search, Technology Park was the clear choice for OnLogic’s expansion because it provides the prominent exposure we were looking for, along with ample space for future growth. The Wiemann Lamphere and ReArch Company team were selected because of our collective alignment of corporate values and because they both have outstanding reputations.”
The project leverages an integrated design team comprised of Wiemann Lamphere Architects, VHB Engineers, Hardy Structural Engineers, Engineering Services of Vermont, and ReArch Company. While currently in preconstruction, the team is advancing permitting, entitlement, project scheduling, and early cost estimating, with a construction groundbreaking anticipated for May 2022. Chris Huston, ReArch Company VP of Preconstruction, notes, “We are excited to be part of the integrated team working through all the details during the important preconstruction phase. Remaining focused on the forward-thinking sustainability goals will be critical to the success of the project.”
Energy management and sustainability have been integral to the building’s design, with numerous mechanical systems being considered based on annual operating and energy costs, incentives, and building life cycle costs. Mechanical systems and building materials are carefully being selected to minimize the building’s carbon footprint. David Roy, Owner, Wiemann Lamphere Architects, remarks, “It is rewarding for Wiemann Lamphere Architects to have Technology Park chosen as the new home for Onlogic’s expansion, after years of thoughtful consideration. Our investigation included expansion potential at the current OnLogic facility, along with the review of other possible sites for their proposed new location. Our design team is dedicated to delivering a highly sustainable, efficient, and flexible facility to accommodate continued growth for OnLogic in the years to come.
This high-performance building will feature a large rooftop solar array, geothermal heating/cooling, and EV charging stations. The compact building footprint was designed to maximize open space and to be pedestrian and bike-friendly with an expanded onsite recreation path and access to neighboring walking trails. The third-story office wing is ideally oriented to maximize solar access and views of the green mountains. Carefully designed landscaping around the outdoor dining plaza will promote employees’ well-being, along with other Technology Park amenities, including an onsite coffee roaster and café, early childcare center, and fitness center.
