Orange Village Service Department Under Construction 2013 Bialosky + Partners Architects

New Service Department for Orange Village to Open Fall 2013

This fall, Orange Village, OH will have a brand new service department on Lander Road. The new 12,800 sf facility and 3,200 sf salt building will support the village’s service department, and provide a maintenance faculty for the service, fire and police vehicles.  Flexibility and efficiency were key design factors, which led to a timber frame pole structure. Notice in the construction photos, this structure allows the spaces to be free of columns that boast a versatile /open interior. As for sustainability, this type of pole construction also has the advantage of an energy efficient building shell, and the site itself encompasses bio-retention.


The project is now under construction alongside the city’s existing Municipal Center. A few designers from office buckled up their boots, and visited the site Monday to see the large-spanning trusses installed (see the video if you couldn’t visit the site).

    Great video! It’s amazing to see that entire truss placed. Can’t wait to see this project as it nears completion.
