OHM Advisors has relocated its office in Mount Pleasant, MI to a former retail space in downtown Midland, MI.
At 3,000 sf, the newly-renovated space at 415 East Main Street provides room to expand. According to OHM Advisors Managing Partner Craig Schripsema, the firm plans to hire additional engineering staff within the year, and has the more long-term goal of bringing urban design and architecture professionals to the Mid-Michigan area.
“We feel it’s going to be important to have staff from our full breadth of services working in this location moving forward,” Schripsema says.
Schripsema says that Midland’s developing Main Street District was a big draw when looking for office space. He credits the mixed-use buildings across from Dow Diamond in the East End District, as well as the long-term investment plans for all of downtown for initially peaking the firm’s interest in the community.
Praising the collaborative efforts being led by Momentum Midland to revitalize downtown Midland, he adds, “There’s so much energy in this area right now,” he says. “When it was time to start looking for new space, we absolutely wanted to be in the heart of that – in a community so clearly dedicated to investing in its future.”
OHM Advisors will maintain its presence in Mount Pleasant, opening a field office in a new, larger location on Corporate Drive. The new location will provide design services, expanded materials testing, and construction engineering.
