Lodi Station is complete with train-related design elements incorporated into the storefronts and a fully functioning train running throughout the complex on a two mile long track. Over the past decade, a second phase was constructed and, in the process, with its additional square footage, earned the facility the distinction as one of the largest outlet malls in Ohio. Structurally, the facility is sound, so improvements in this renovation were focused more on aesthetics and pedestrian navigation. Included in our scope of work was the construction of a 128 ft. long train barn, an amphitheater to accommodate parties and large events on the site, the transformation of the existing food court into the “Grand Central Station” food court area, the repaving of the existing parking lot, and a complete storefront renovation with train-related features including a water tower, switching tower, depots, train stops, etc. Marous Brothers Construction set up an onsite fabrication area where large crews of carpenters were able to machine and install the various millwork components throughout the facility in an assembly-line fashion.
PROJECT PARAMETERS: • Various renovations on the 51+acre site
• Construction of train barn, depots, stops, and other train-related design details
• Renovation of the existing food court
• 4 month project duration
We started to work together when Chip and Scott were out in the field hanging doors. They’ve come a long way, because they’ve done the work themselves. They’re hands-on people, giving them the control that makes them good at what they do. If you need a builder to rely on, they’re the one.
