About This Project

This renovation of and addition to a small historical firehouse for the City of Columbus was a study in zoning, historical, civic, and neighborhood procedure. The needs and desires of numerous boards and groups were satisfied while adding four apparatus bays, 21 dorm rooms, and a new kitchen.

Renovations included:

  • Window, masonry, and door replacement
  • Updated kitchen

The exterior of the existing building was rehabilitated to reflect its original condition. The detailing of the exterior building and fixtures and new landscaping maintain the residential feel of this Clintonville neighborhood. The building remained in full operation during construction and was rededicated in December of 2003. The project was completed on time and was within the budget. There was over $73,000 left in the construction contingencies.
