PROJECTS

We do not "nickle and dime" our clients.  Instead, we typically work on a flat fee and rarely charge for extras like portal to portal travel to attend meetings.

Medical Facilities
 

In the short span of two months the architect at Smolen Engineering created detailed designs and specifications for a state-of-the-art 6,000 s/f heart catheterization laboratory addition to the Ashtabula County Medical Center. The facility featured a complicated curvilinear connection to the existing building as well as the addition of exam rooms, offices, an upscale waiting area and a second floor ready for a future buildout. 

Hospital Dormitories
 

Due to unprecidented growth, Glenbeigh Hospital commissioned Smolen Engineering in 2012 and, again, in 2014 to design two 6,600 s/f dormitories at their bucolic campus in Rock Creek, Ohio.  Both buildings have proven to be remarkably sturdy, energy efficient and easy to maintain. 

Greenways & Bike Routes

 

Smolen Engineering is proud to have designed the "H" connector bike path and trailhead in Washingtonville, Ohio, which serves as a key Columbiana County linkage in the 100-mile Great Ohio Lake-to-River Greeway.  We also recently designed a bike route in Fairport Harbor and are completing a lengthy property easement acquisition and preliminary design process for Ashtabula's North Shore Trail.

Roads & Signalization

 

Safety, drainage, road re-surfacing and lighting were included in the total design and reconstruction of the intersection at SR 307 and SR 46 in Jefferson, Ohio. Engineering services on this project ran the full spectrum from traffic studies to securing necessary public works and department of transportation funding.  

Waste Water Infrustructure

 

The quiet, residential, lakefront village of Roaming Shores, Ohio is home to more waste water lift stations than the city of Cleveland.  Smolen Engineering has assisted the community with completing a comprehensive evaluation of its aged waste water collection system and creating a phased master plan and funding strategy for replacements and upgrades.  

Commercial & Public Buildings

 

Faced with a pressing need to expand its bulding footprint and a limited budget, the Ashtabula County Dept. of Jobs & Family Services challenged Smolen Engineering to design a $1.2 million expansion using finishings that appeared and functioned high-end, but were inexpensive to purchase and install.       

Roof Replacements

 

The most troublesome maintenance item for most commercial buildings is the roof.  Smolen Engineering has made a science out of designing and bidding extraordinarily durable and cost-effective roofs for public clients.  Our recent involvement with roofing improvements at building complexes that house facilities for developmental disabilities, children's services and a courthouse were instrumental in relieving client stress and risks inherent with such projects.  

Heavy Industry
 

Smolen Engineering is often called upon by large manufacturing and industry to design a wide range of improvements for implementation in often challenging and caustic work environments; namely, chemical laboratories, reinforced concrete press foundations, roofs, chemical storage facilities, outbuildings, storm drainage, repurposing of office and training buildings and more.   

Project Renderings
 

During the initial planning stages of many projects the soft touch of an artist's marker can make a more compelling statement than the exacting hard lines generated in AutoCAD.
