Campbell Oil Company
The new corporate headquarters was built during their 75th anniversary as a dedication of their growth and success. Previously located in an industrial area, the building is now located in a more dense professional/ commercial area giving them more exposure.
The Corporate offices, Training Center and Repair Garage were combined into one location, offering a better line of communication between the three. Making training at the central core of this building promotes an atmosphere of collaboration and interaction with corporate management and the managers of their 50+ BellStore locations, combining all areas of the company together into one cohesive team. This eliminates the ‘disconnect’ between the offices and their numerous BellStore locations.
55,000 SF - New 2-Story Corporate Headquarters
20,000 sf of corporate offices, 5,000 sf training center, 15,000 sf vehicle maintenance/ repair bay and 15,000 sf of storage
Exterior façade reflects similar design elements seen at the retail BellStores to create a cohesive corporate aesthetic. These elements include a standing seam roof, use of masonry and the entry canopy at the main entrance of the Training Center.
All offices are designed to have a view of the outdoors and allow for natural light (Private offices have glass fronts).
Although there is much growth, a family-focused atmosphere is at the core of their company values. To further this environment, there are several collaborative areas and, off of the main kitchenette, is an exterior patio and an adjacent green area to allow for relaxation and social interaction.
