Founder and President of Casco Contractors, Cheryl Osborn, is an attentive and responsive leader to a capable team of builders and project managers. Orange County Business Journal named Osborn among the region’s most influential business leaders. Since 2000, the firm has maintained a strong focus on offices, factories, and retail locations, and sees clients through the build process from pre-construction to completion. Osborn, along with industry veteran and Director of Operations Justin Park, has assembled a staff with diverse career backgrounds. As each project presents its own unique set of challenges, Casco assembles teams based on individual expertise, rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach. Most professionals on staff have been with the company for more than seven years and bring a distinct skill set to the company. Building Owners and Managers Association Orange County chapter honored Casco with an Outstanding Building of the Year Award for an industrial project for The Irvine Company.
BNA Design drew plans for NextVR headquarters in Newport Beach, and Casco executed the build. The virtual reality developer required an open and flexible space. The lobby, formerly that of the Ritz Restaurant, features grand ceiling heights, but streamlined decor. A white and dark wood reception desk pops against polished concrete floors and a cut stone back wall. To attain a Brooklyn meets Southern California aesthetic, the design incorporates forged steel and weathered barn wood doors that open the office space to a 2,500 square-foot open-air patio. The furnished outdoor area is made for luxuriating in a quick break or throwing an impromptu office party. Back inside, a waffle ceiling and customizable lighting tracks allow the marketing and development teams to achieve optimal comfort levels while they work. IIDA nominated the office for a Calibre Award.
