[rev_slider Morinaga] LAE worked with a diverse project team to design a new North American headquarters and manufacturing facility for Morinaga America Foods, Inc., the maker of the popular Japanese candy Hi-Chew.  A variety of sites and designs have been considered by the project team, with LAE assisting through rapid creation of 3D models and renderings.  Tilt-up concrete wall panels and a steel framed roof structure were determined to be optimal in terms of cost and flexibility for future expansion. Along with the office portion of the headquarters, the envelope's concrete panels have been manipulated to architecturally highlight the entrance and develop a sense of personal scale in contrast with the massive manufacturing volume beyond. In addition to providing master planning services and assistance with site selection, LAE developed all architectural and structural engineering documents for the project.  

[rev_slider Nyanne] The Nyanne III mixed-use building was designed by Livermore A&E in tandem with pioneering developer Roslyn Hill during broader efforts to revitalize the now-thriving Alberta Arts District. The building’s pre-engineered metal frame provided significant cost savings and helped to create the urban industrial look that directly responds to the historical context of the surrounding Alberta streetscape.  While corrugated metal panels and exposed steel stairs reinforce this industrial look on the exterior, rich wood cabinetry and stained concrete floors provide a comfortable counterpoint within its retail and residential loft spaces.

[rev_slider omsi] Livermore Architecture & Engineering, Inc. joined in a collaborative effort with InSpec Group, Sanyo North America Corp and Portland General Electric to design and construct the first publically-accessible solar canopy in North America at Portland's Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI).  This multi-modal structure provides shelter and recharging capability for up to three EV automobiles and electric-assist bicycles while also providing weatherproof lockers with integrated electrical outlets for its users.  In total, the Sanyo-provided solar array can generate up to 10,000 killowatt hours of renewable power per year.

[rev_slider sanyo] Livermore A&E provided building design services for SANYO Solar of Oregon’s solar cell manufacturing facility in Salem, Oregon.  The expansive 129,850 square foot one-story building includes an array of elevated production equipment platforms and a 26,500 square foot office suite that includes open and private offices, conference rooms, a kitchen, an employee lounge and locker rooms.  A visitor drop off canopy featuring expressive concrete piers and Sanyo’s bi-facial solar panels provides a signature element at the building’s entry. Concrete tilt-up bearing walls with a steel roof structure enclose the main 42’-0” tall manufacturing area, while an array of exterior concrete equipment slabs and interior elevated steel platforms round out the structural component of the project.

[rev_slider imex] Livermore Architecture & Engineering, Inc. provided building design services for the IMEX Toner Manufacturing Facility consisting of a 23,000 square foot building replete with a 4,000 square foot office area, 9,000 square foot manufacturing area and 10,000 square foot warehouse/employee services area. In response to IMEX’s specific manufacturing process, tilt-up concrete bearing walls spanning a full 52’-0” in height were used in tandem with a steel beam and joist roof structure. As part of the design, Livermore A&E developed a detailed 3D structural model for an intricate interior process equipment platform.  This model ensured the client’s complex process requirements were met while also facilitating coordination across all design disciplines, including piping, material lifts and electrical controls.

Located in the heart of Seattle’s Pike Street district, this 2,600SF Restaurant features an open display kitchen and a variety of dining areas to accommodate large and small groups. With full height glazing on three sides, the restaurant is strategically positioned to provide spectacular views of downtown Seattle, Elliott Bay and the Space Needle beyond. At the sushi bar, service counters, and bar, traditional Japanese detail is interlaced with northwest wood detailing to provide a rich atmosphere that speaks to the broader cultural hybridity of Seattle. Livermore Architecture & Engineering, Inc. provided architectural and interior design services, along with permitting assistance and construction administration.

[rev_slider Ajinomoto] Livermore Architecture & Engineering provided design services and permit assistance for the expansion of Ajinomoto Frozen Foods USA North American headquarters in Portland. Livermore addressed the challenges of this office expansion by developing a series of 3D models that proposed a variety of potential schemes for expanding Ajinomoto’s office holdings, each responding to both the existing building to the east and the open landscaped environment to the west. Overall, 10,000SF of office space was designed including support services and an expansive second-story balcony that connects the building to its broader property.  Services included architecture, structural engineering, code review with the City of Portland, design coordination with the Port of Portland and construction administration.
