ClevelandOatey Co., a global manufacturer and distributor of plumbing and related products, has recently opened its new 7-acre headquarters on Emerald Parkway Drive. Donley’s Inc. served as the construction manager at risk and Vocon was the designer of the new office.

The two-story facility includes a 2,800-square-foot patio overlooking the Rocky River Reservation. Bordering the Cleveland Metroparks, the mass of the building is constructed from dark bronze and stone, while native plant species are used throughout the landscape. The new facility is a sustainable and energy-efficient space that incorporates a variety of open and closed conference areas. Amenities include multiple indoor cafes, outdoor picnic areas, a fitness suite and an outdoor walking trail. The structure houses 130 people and consolidates office workers and executives from Oatey’s three Cleveland operations.

The project was designed for maximum energy efficiency meeting ASHRAE Standard 189.1 Standard for the Design of High Performance Green Buildings, and it’s also pursuing LEED Silver certification.

Oatey Co. is a 100-year old manufacturing company that employs approximately 800 people globally and has production facilities or sales offices in Canada, China, India and Latin America. Oatey Co. distributes more than 6,000 plumbing products.
