Commercial Case Studies

At Scenic Ridge, we make it our priority to build commercial buildings that celebrate our heritage, while still appearing contemporary with sleek designs. We work with our clients to create a building they are proud to own and visit each day.

Scenic Ridge has successfully completed commercial projects including buildings for clients in retail, automotive repair, business offices, community centers and fire halls. As a community-minded company, we are pleased that we have been able to work with many non-profit organizations and churches in helping them realize their dream of a new facility.

Arbor Place Discuss Your Project

Quick Facts: Not-For-Profit Organization, Lancaster PA. Completed in 2012

Scenic Ridge Construction recently completed the new home for The Mix at Arbor Place, which is a faith-based, non-profit youth center located in the heart of the South East quadrant of Lancaster City. A collaborative effort between Scenic Ridge Construction and Cornerstone Design resulted in the award for the project over seven other design-build teams. The project was challenging in several respects: the new facility had to be constructed on a restricted, oddly shaped lot; construction materials had to be extremely durable to stand up to the rigors of daily use by neighborhood children; an indoor basketball court had to be included; holding down project costs was very important since The Mix operates on donations; and finally, the design had to be approved by the Lancaster Conservation District. Receiving this approval was no easy task. The team had to go before the Conservation Board three times before receiving approval!
The exterior was modified by incorporating brick on the façades that faced North and Locust Streets. The first phase of the project consisted of demolishing the existing 75-year old facility before it fell down of its own accord. The structure was actually an interconnected maze of seven different buildings and additions. The basements of two of the structures and low areas of the site had to be filled in and brought up to grade. After the site was prepared, the footers were dug and poured for the masonry walls of the building. Several months of masonry work were required to construct the exterior and first floor walls of the structure. Scenic Ridge Construction worked with Weaver Masonry to pour the floors of the building as various masonry sections were completed.
The steel structural beams and columns, floor and roof bar joists were installed by Scenic Ridge Construction after the masonry work was almost complete. Several times during the course of the project, Scenic Ridge Construction employees donated their time to work on the building to benefit The Mix at Arbor Place. Some of the subcontractors also donated labor and equipment time to the project. The completed building has exceeded Arbor Place’s expectations. They are extremely pleased with the results of the project and with the performance of Scenic Ridge Construction. Thank you to all who took part in making this project a success!
