Oshkosh Corporation World Headquarters
When Oshkosh Corporation (best known for manufacturing combat vehicles for the U.S. Military) announced it was looking for a new global headquarters, the City of Oshkosh sprang into action. Having to compete against other states and cities, the City hired Houseal Lavigne Associates to develop a program, conceptual plans, and 3d renderings. Desired features included dramatic views of the main building, recreational amenities, public open spaces, riverwalk and trail connections, and easy access to Interstate 41, Downtown Oshkosh, surrounding neighborhoods, and opportunities for future expansion. Using the power of CityEngine and the firm’s extensive experience in site planning and 3d visualizations, the City’s site was selected and the Plan is currently in the next phase of development with plans to break ground in 2018.
