Larson Design Group has become the first business to relocate to the new WestRidge Business + Retail Park, Morgantown’s largest mixed-use development under construction near the Interstate 79 interchange. The new space will allow LDG’s teams to more effectively serve their clients in the energy and civil engineering markets as well as allow for expansion in the growing regional market.
The new office has more than doubled in size from LDG’s previous space in Cranberry Square. The new space will dramatically improve the visitor experience and aesthetics. The office has high ceilings and an industrial feel, as well as a dramatic view of the massive earthwork at the WestRidge development beyond. A large bay in the back of the building will accommodate parking for field vehicles and provide space for equipment as well as soil and rock borings.
“In the next five years, we plan to more than double the number of employees in our Morgantown office at WestRidge,” said Rich Rogers, LDG’s Morgantown office leader. “Our new location is part of our strategic plan for regional growth and will enable us to better serve our existing and new clients.”
“We are driven by quality in everything we do at WestRidge,” said Holly Childs, WestRidge’s director of business development. “Building out a customized office space to help a quality professional services firm like Larson Design Group grow in the Morgantown market was a privilege for our team.”
WestRidge Business + Retail Park will offer direct access to three full I-79 interchanges, a growing premier regional shopping center, lush landscaping and outdoor vistas, and access to unique tenant amenities such as bike and walking trails.
Rogers has more than 17 years of experience in project management, environmental permitting, oil and gas, mining, geotechnical and construction management services. He earned a Bachelor of Science in chemical engineering from West Virginia University and is a 2013 graduate of Leadership West Virginia.
LDG is a nationally emerging architecture, engineering and survey firm with offices in Morgantown, Pittsburgh and eight other cities in four states.
