We congratulate our clients who recently had ribbon cuttings and are enjoying their new spaces. These include C.B.D. Consulting (Dixon Architecture and First Companies), Miller Dental (Dixon Architecture and DAR Development), West Michigan Dermatology (R2Design and First Companies), and more! Stay tuned for articles with more information on these exciting projects.
Our next projects to be complete are in the final phase of design. This means we are answering questions that come up at the job site, making any reselections based on budget or lead time issues, and supporting the process through review and consult. Here are some updates on the projects in the final phase.
This is a great new corporate office for this dynamic, young company who is currently busting at the seams in their current office. They wanted a neutral scheme with a POP! This includes very cool light fixtures, and of course, really cool furnishings. We are working with Dixon Architecture and Dykhouse Construction, and this project will be complete in early summer.

United Commercial Services (UCS)
Our friends at UCS bought an older building and are gutting it to create a new, fresh and functional office for their crew; offices as well as a warehouse. Designing for a commercial cleaning company is interesting. We learned a lot about what truly maintainable finishes are. We are working with Lott3Metz Architecture and Pinnacle Construction, and this project will be complete just about the time the kids go back to school!

West Michigan Pediatric Dentistry
With over 500 people visiting their office a day, including parents and siblings, these energetic docs were ready to create a new space that was able to house their busy, busy practice. Gaining some efficiencies and creating more patient comforts were top priorities. No dinosaurs or primary colors here, just warm relaxing fun. The new office includes three kids’ holding areas, a generous open hygiene area, private treatment rooms, and consulting rooms. When it is finished, there will be a model train running throughout the office!

West Michigan-based Nap Ventures Inc, known as NapTags, were bursting at the seams and realized their need for a new space. Moving to a new location gave them the opportunity to add machines and new capabilities to better serve their customers.
r.o.i Design helped create an interior environment that was soft and comfortable to support the creativity and customer service that is important to NapTag’s success. Some of the stand-out details of the office include the wood reception desk with a waterfall countertop, tall ceilings, display built-ins to show off their product, ceiling clouds wrapped in wood, and interesting flooring patterns throughout the office and breakroom.
On the corner of Webster and Front Ave, on the fringe of downtown, is a 105-year-old brick building that has housed a variety of small companies over the years. Designers, photographers, videographers, writers, musicians, engineers, sporting good distributors, consultants, mitten makers, screen printers and even candlemakers have made this their home.
The building is located conveniently close to US-131 and I-196 on and off ramps. It is also close to downtown Grand Rapids.
Currently, there is a 1,300 square feet warehouse-type space available that would be perfect for small manufacturing or product distribution. It includes two parking lot spaces and use of the common kitchen and meeting room.
There is also 2nd-floor office space available, 350 square feet that includes one parking space and use of the common kitchen and meeting room.
To learn more about the available spaces, please contact Duke Gray at BluHouse Properties at email@example.com.

With a dynamic young president and a focus on innovation, West Michigan Compounding is a company to watch! With a business plan to grow operations, they needed to expand their offices. Wolverine Building Group reached out to r.o.i. Design for interior design services for this office expansion, which more than doubled the office space, added break-out space and new restrooms.
Ashley Everin, Vice President of West Michigan Compounding, wanted the new office to have a clean, loft look with open ceilings, concrete floors, glass office walls, a touch of reclaimed wood, and new office systems.
In addition to interior finishes, r.o.i. Design assisted them in finding an office furniture supplier who could provide “the look” they wanted. West Michigan Office Interiors was one of four groups we reached out to, and West Michigan Compounding chose to work with them to create a great open office.
