Location: Johnstown, OH

ADR was selected to team with Project Architecture/Project Construction Company in a design-build effort for a 70,000 square foot expansion of Armstrong World Industries – Steel Ceiling Division located in Johnstown, Ohio.  The site as previously constructed had no provision for stormwater management, therefore additional improvements were necessary to accommodate both existing and proposed stormwater including the addition of two stormwater basins joined by an equalization pipe to maximize the developable area.In addition to the stormwater improvements, site access was a major concern of the owner. Semi-truck access and loading docks, both recessed and above-grad dock were added and isolated from employee parking and building access.

Buckeye Shooting Center Location: Newark, OH Client: Zack Bryner

Buckeye Shooting Center

Location: Newark, OH

Developed in 2019 and opened in the fall of 2021, Buckeye Shooting Center is a veteran-owned facility open to the public as well as partnering with local law enforcement agencies to provide training opportunities. The 15,000 sq. ft. facility constructed on approximately 2 acres in the City of Newark presented a number of drainage challenges as we discovered there was no suitable surface outlet and with space being a premium in a commercial setting.  With local knowledge of the area, ADR believed subsurface infiltration may be a possibility to handle stormwater management.  After sub-consulting Geotechnical Consultants Inc (GCI) to perform subsurface infiltration testing, it was confirmed the infiltration was a viable solution.  A detailed stormwater management plan was put in place to eliminate the need for a conventional detention basin allowing for the site development to be maximized. The designed infiltration system remains in excellent working condition with minimal routine maintenance detail in the operation & maintenance manual provided to the owner.

stemflex highlight paved


Location: Newark, OH -2023

In partnership with the Heath-Newark-Licking County Port Authority, ADR was selected as a partner with JBA Architects to redevelop the building interior/exterior as well as site improvements of two former automotive dealerships across a 3.25-acre site in Newark, OH. With collaboration with city officials, it was determined that the nearly 1-acre reduction in impervious area would ultimately reduce the amount of stormwater controls needed for the redevelopment compared to a typical development. With local knowledge of the site, stormwater infiltration basins (dry wells) were utilized to reduce infrastructure significantly combined with surface drainage to eliminate the need for costly storm sewers.
Coordination with the architect was provided to confirm ADA access throughout the site as well as locating service door features and confirming turning movements within the site will be adequate for the future users expected.

Coughlin Ford Store and Body Shop (2017)

Location: Jersey Twp. Licking Co., OH

This project included two new building sites with associated dealership inventory and service department parking for the Ford Store and customer service parking for the body shop.  The two buildings and parking lots were designed to be separate facilities with connectivity between the sites for better access to shared services.  This project also included overall site stormwater management for both buildings.  The location of the project is not currently served by public water or sewer.  Therefore, on-site wastewater treatment via individual mound systems for each building has been designed and approved by the local Health Dept.  Water service and treatment also have to be designed for public consumption and permitted by the Ohio EPA.  This project is under construction and scheduled to be completed by the end of 2017.

Agreements between the city and developer were facilitated to allow for future improvements along Horns Hill Road, saving both parties involved during the construction of the subdivision. Curb & gutter roadway, public sewer & water, and stormwater management were designed to meet the City of Newark’s requirements.  Construction of Phase I was completed in 2022, with Phase II construction underway and expected to be completed spring of 2023.

Moo Moo Car Wash

Location: City of Newark, Ohio and City of Heath, Ohio

ADR provided design services to Express Wash Systems for the construction of Moo Moo Express Car Wash sites in both the City of Newark and the City of Heath in Licking County.  The redevelopment site in Heath was required to maintain access to the neighboring Wendys location.  To accommodate the additional traffic demands, ADR designed a split lane entrance to both add turn lanes and maintain the existing monument sign. In the case of the Newark Site, ADR collaborated with multiple design professionals to provide accessibility to neighboring sites providing connection to the common access drive design by ADR as primary access to the car wash.
