Medpace is a scientifically-based clinical research organization (CRO) that conducts global clinical research for the development of drugs and medical devices. In 2017, the company elected to expand its existing office space in Madisonville, Ohio, to accommodate significant growth, and to attract and retain top-tier talent.
Gresham Smith’s campus master plan delivers a new 263,000-square-foot, seven-story office tower for this progressive CRO. The project also includes street-level retail shops and a 900-car parking garage. Slated for completion in 2020, this dynamic new headquarters will serve as an iconic new identity for the Medpace campus while embracing the cultural and contextual aesthetic of the Madisonville neighborhood.

Unique, Energetic & ActiveIn a true multidisciplinary effort, Gresham, Smith provided a full suite of services for the project, including architecture, interior design, structural engineering and MEP engineering. Building on Medpace’s corporate culture, the new space will be unique, energetic and active, while emphasizing the company’s commitment to health and wellness by incorporating movement- and communication-centric features, such as a centralized communicating stair that connects to all floors.
The flexibility to accommodate the company’s growth patterns, including an innovative modular workspace configuration, is another key feature that sets this design apart.
