Open for Business: Paragon Architecture LLC

Posted online

Paragon Architecture LLC
The former home of Inland Printing Co. at 637 W. College St. is the new headquarters for Paragon Architecture LLC, which opened its doors March 2. Marketing Coordinator Bekah Olson said the firm’s 22 employees occupy the renovated space as final touches are being completed this month. Paragon was architect for the 10,000-square-foot building, with Branco Enterprises Inc. as general contractor. Brad Erwin, president and principal architect, said the firm occupies roughly 7,000 square feet, and Revel Advertising leases 2,000 square feet. The remaining space is a shared common area. Erwin declined to disclose the project cost, noting he was still finalizing numbers. He said it would be higher than the $500,000 declared valuation listed on a city building permit. Erwin said Paragon leased roughly 2,600 square feet for nine years at 430 S. Glenstone Ave. and needed more space to accommodate employee growth.

Neale & Newman LLP
After maintaining an office on East Sunshine Street for nearly 40 years, law firm Neale & Newman LLP headed to southeast Springfield with a Feb. 24 opening in the Farmers Park mixed-use development. The firm occupies 12,000 square feet at 2144 E. Republic Road, Ste. F302. The office is only the fourth location in Neale & Newman’s nearly 100 years in Springfield, said partner Patrick Platter. He is one of 13 partners and 17 attorneys in the firm, which was founded in Greenfield in 1903. Neale & Newman previously worked out of the American National Center, 1949 E. Sunshine St. Relocation costs and lease terms with Farmers Park developer Green Circle Projects LLC were not disclosed. Neale & Newman shares the building with Guaranty Federal Bancshares Inc. (Nasdaq: GFED). Law services include personal injury, workers’ compensation, estate planning, commercial transactions and intellectual property.

Anderson Engineering Inc.
A new $2.5 million headquarters for Springfield-based Anderson Engineering Inc. was completed late last year, and the firm moved in Dec. 23. The 3213 S. West Bypass building includes a 10,000-square-foot office and a separate 5,000-square-foot materials testing lab and loading dock. It’s more than double the size of the firm’s former home at 2045 W. Woodland St., where it had operated since 2004. Base Construction & Management LLC was general contractor on the project, with Buxton Kubik Dodd Design Collective as architect. Anderson Engineering Marketing Director Karie Currence said 47 of the company’s 155 employees work out of the headquarters. The company, which performs civil and geotechnical engineering, surveying, materials testing and inspections, operates 10 offices in Missouri, Arkansas and Florida, according to its website.
