Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks Scioto Grove Shelters
Grove City, Ohio

Schaefer provided the structural engineering design for four new shelters in Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks Scioto Grove. Two of the shelters can hold 16-20 people, while the other two smaller shelters hold 8-10 people. Each shelter is positioned along a park trail for easy accessibility + to take advantage of park views.

Three of the shelters are relatively open with a semi-private screen + bench along one side. They’re framed from a combination of wood + steel. The fourth shelter is a restroom which was constructed with a wood roof supported by CMU walls.

This project was awarded the AIA Ohio Design Award for Newly Completed Buildings, Additions, Remodelings, Renovations, Restorations.
