The Columbus Regional Hospital Ambulance Service building was originally a fire station designed by a local architect and built in 1962. It is considered one of his more significant works, notable also as a product of local design in a community known for important works by nationally-known architects. In recognition of this, we worked with the owner to maintain the character of the building to the greatest extent possible. The project involved restoration of the exterior and sensitive renovation of the interior. Although built to a very high standard of quality, the building had been poorly maintained in recent years, and needed general renovation to prepare it for use by the ambulance service.
Necessary exterior work included painting, window repair, partial reroofing, and other work. Interior work required construction of new offices, separate sleeping rooms and new bathrooms to allow for male and female EMT's, extensive mechanical and electrical work, painting and general repair.
