Owner: Craftsman Auto Body
Architect: Ballard Architects
Both projects involved full site utilities and excavation. The Craftsman Body Shops were designed with a flow of a damaged car would enter and newly repaired and painted car would exit. From customized duct systems to remove exhaust, dust and fumes from the paint stations. Fully enclosed custom paint missing rooms and painting booths. Both buildings were prefabricated metal buildings, Purcellville which has spilt face brick columns and storefront entrance and Gainesville was enhanced with EIFS and split faced brick facade. Each project had it’s challenges. Purcellville had a 12′ lift with soils used from site to bring pad to grade and Gainesville was built on a site with very poor soils which had to be amended due to the clay type materials and the nearby wetlands.
