Chesapeake Utilities New Dover Campus Breaks Ground

Chesapeake Utilities approached Tevebaugh Associates in late 2015 and asked our team to create a new Dover Campus that consolidated four separate offices, two storage facilities,  a maintenance and materials supply yard, and a compressed natural gas filling station onto a new 20 acre campus in Dover, Delaware.

Chesapeake presented the design team with the unique challenge of co-locating two individual business subsidiaries into an efficient and cost-effective headquarters that could serve the unique needs of both Eastern Shore Natural Gas and Chesapeake Utilities.  To meet that goal, the team utilized an integrated design process that included Tevebaugh Associates (Architecture), Furlow Associates (Mech / Elec / Plumbing / Fire Protection), Baker, Ingram and Associates (Structural), Becker Morgan Group (Civil) and Brandywine Contractors, Inc (Construction Manager).
