MAGNET Headquarters

The Manufacturing Advocacy and Growth Network (MAGNET) is a non-profit providing smaller manufacturers throughout Ohio with consulting support and workforce development. The organization recently redeveloped an old school building into its 53,000 SF headquarters, which blends academic and office elements and includes workshop spaces, conference rooms, social spaces, classrooms, and a STEM playground. Langan designed the public playground and adjacent park space, known as Heroes of Manufacturing Park, with consultation from the Great Lakes Science Center and Cleveland Metroparks. We also coordinated closely with many local community stakeholders and provided complete site/civil and surveying services for the overall redevelopment. Langan helped the project remain on schedule for its opening, despite an accelerated timeline.
