New, Modern Headquarters for Fast-Growing Insurance Company

Patrons Oxford Insurance Company was looking for a new headquarters location to attract a younger, more diverse workforce. Our team provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection design services for the modern, energy-efficient building that serves as the first tenant in Portland’s Technology Park.

The two-story office building features plenty of light, flexible work and meeting spaces, and a fitness area with lockers and showers. The building uses mass timber framing with some structural steel reinforcements—and has a photovoltaic rooftop array that will provide up to 40 percent of its electricity needs. The projected savings in energy costs will pay back the initial investment in less than ten years. The project received an AIA Maine Citation Award and an AIA Maine People’s Choice Award in 2018.
