ODNR - Hocking
The field office is an 11,706 SF single story structure situated on a 1.2 acre rural site in Scioto County.
The building was oriented to capture the maximum passive solar energy and views from inside the building as well as to accommodate trailer, vehicular, and pedestrian traffic. Two attached building systems were utilized in the design of the facility: A conv entional framed structure housing the public and officer support spaces and a pre-engineered metal building structure housing the storage of and accommodating the maintenance of the watercraft fleet.
The interior is comprised of three primary use areas: Public spaces, Officer spaces & Watercraft Storage. The Public space consists of a one and half story open lobby and adjacent meeting room for 50 people. The Officer space consists of a clerical area, offices, an evidence room, weapons storage, a break room, lockers & showers. The watercraft storage area has five large bays for the storage of watercraft and vehicles, a wash bay, maintenance/work area, and offices.
