This 18,000 sf pre-engineered metal building houses a school that provides mission-driven students with FAA-certified training in aircraft maintenance and flight. The building contains administrative and teaching faculty offices, classrooms, and hands-on workshops. A large hangar-type overhead door allows aircraft access to the hangar area for assembly/disassembly of the aircraft, its engine, and all associated parts. Welding stations, a metal shop, and ample storage areas are provided adjacent to the hangar area. Omega Architects chose a simple, clean design for the building's exterior. Omega Architects also provided all site design services. The rendering below was used for fundraising for this non-profit organization.
This project is an economical combination of two separate restaurant lease spaces. The structure is clean and simple, yet bold and easily identified from a distance. The building can accommodate two separate drive-up windows if necessary. The parking lot is combined with a parking lot from an adjacent gas station/C-store under the same ownership. The building’s value is enhanced by both tenants sharing an existing water well and sanitary sewer drain field with the C-store. Additional savings are realized by having a common entry that is dramatic and identifiable. The main entry vestibule also contains shared toilet rooms, freeing up more floor area for seating in each lease space.
This speculative design venture illustrates the type of care and design consideration Omega Architects often provides to our established clients in order to properly assist them in determining the development potential of a site and help them secure a commission. The site had an array of physical and zoning constraints that dictated design and driveway locations. Omega Architects provided different site designs for one dual occupant restaurant, a three party building, two separate buildings, and a new building with a shared access driveway and shared parking with an existing adjacent building. In this instance, Omega also produced a potential exterior design concept to further help sell the design.
