Lake Community Center

Joint ventures with community organizations including the YMCA of Central Stark County and Mercy Medical Hospital enhance this state-of-the-art facility. The completed facility serves both students and community members and features a YMCA with a pool, Mercy Medical Outpatient Center, indoor running track, and gymnasium.

Buehler’s Fresh Market

Buehler’s is a well-known independent regional grocery store operator with a reputation for innovation and creativity. When they began planning a state-of-the-art new store in an upscale Jackson Township area, they relied on Hammond as the general contractor. The new facility included a restaurant, pharmacy, hardware store, and a convenient “load and go” grocery pick up system.

Christ Chapel

The Christ Chapel was built on a 26-acre site that included athletic fields, water retention basin and mounded perimeter landscaping. As construction manager at risk, Hammond was involved in the design process early on, providing numerous value engineering reviews to align the project cost with the owner’s budget. The structure featured a 900-seat auditorium with balcony, Christian education spaces, fellowship hall, gymnasium, stage, and kitchen facilities capable of banquet seating for 450.


The Chapel, Green Campus

The Chapel’s 80-acre wooded site had multiple wetland areas which required mitigation and special design considerations to ensure that future site drainage would maintain the health of the undisturbed wetlands. The new two-story worship and education facility featured an 1,800 seat sanctuary, classrooms and activity areas for children, a large fellowship / atrium space with a kitchen, and two outdoor sports fields.

Faith Family Church

As construction manager at risk, Hammond was given the responsibility for converting a manufacturing facility into a new church campus. Creating the new 3,800-seat sanctuary required removing and raising a large section of the 42,000 SF roof. The impressive facility also includes a small chapel, extensive children’s area, gymnasium, and full-service kitchen for the congregation.


Stark County Library

Hammond Construction was selected by the Library Board to complete their district-wide improvement plan, publicly funded through a $10 million dollar bond issue. The four-year plan included a major renovation of the main library, with site modifications and the creation of a new main entrance, and improved interior circulation pattern. Renovations and additions were also completed at five other branch locations throughout Stark County.

Akron Zoological Park, Mike & Mary Stark Grizzly Ridge

As construction manager at risk, Hammond is constructing new exhibit spaces for grizzly bears, wolves, otters, and eagles. The project includes site work with significant grade changes, new buildings, and infrastructure improvements connecting the upper and lower portions of the zoo. This exciting project was one of the first CMR projects completed under the new State of Ohio construction reform guidelines.
