Poggemyer Design Group was recently selected as architects and engineers on the Tolloty Technology Center Incubator, a 25,000 square feet high-tech business incubator to be constructed in the Tuscarawas Regional Technology Park in New Philadelphia, Ohio. Poggemyer Design Group is headquartered in Bowling Green, Ohio.
Poggemeyer has extensive experience with EDA funded projects, and was involved in the development of the University of Toledo's Nitschke Business Incubator. Other design, development, and commissioning contractors on the project include Vision Mechanical, and Heapy Engineering. Programming for building contents and configuration will begin in July and design development will begin in August. After the building, parking lots, and grounds "footprint" is developed this fall, the land necessary for the structure, and also additional land for future expansion will be transferred from the Community Improvement Corporation to the Tuscarawas County University Branch District, dba Kent State University at Tuscarawas who will be owner of the Incubator. The Community Improvement Corporation will manage the facility for Kent Tuscarawas.
Kent Tuscarawas has partnered with the CIC and Kent State University to develop the Incubator. The Kent State University Office of University Architect is assisting the Incubator development team with preliminary design, cost estimating, and permitting for the Incubator and will act as a liaison between the owners of the building and the contracted architect and engineering firm.
The project is on a fast track with design and specifications expected to be completed in early winter, construction bidding in January or February, 2012 and construction to begin in March, 2012.
