The Brilliant New Addition To The Village at Odenton

MetFab is proud to have been a part of the creation of a new apartment and retail center. This exciting project undoubtedly brought new challenges that MetFab conquered in order to complete this brilliant new addition to Odenton, MD. The Village at Odenton Station in Maryland is Anne Arundel County’s first transit-oriented, mixed use development. It is comprised of 57,000 square feet of retail and 235 apartments. The Village at Odenton Station is conveniently located less than 2 miles from Maryland’s largest employer, Fort George G. Meade. About 109,000 people are at Fort Meade on any given day including more than 60,000 Department of Defense and National Security Agents and nearly 3,000 military families that are housed on base. The Village is also about halfway between Baltimore and Washington, D.C. and is at the heart of the Odenton Town Center. This was an exciting and challenging project and will certainly be a great addition to Odenton.

 

RCS Construction Services partnered with MetFab to complete The Village, which is comprised of 4 buildings, which were completed 60 days ahead of schedule. Joe Gretchen, the VP of commercial construction at RCS, said, “We all enjoyed working with MetFab especially since they are a local manufacturer who could provide a great finished product, and when we hit snags, they always tried to accommodate our immediate material needs. This was a very challenging project and we are very happy with the finished systems on these buildings. RCS could not have had such a successful project without MetFab on this project”.

 

This project utilized various types of panels including 7” custom box gutters with individual support straps and custom TIG welded outlet sleeves. Each of these components were fabricated out of .040 mill aluminum so that they could be welded and concealed to camouflage the bare finish. MetFab also fabricated custom gutter covers, a 2 piece custom cornice fascia that interlocked to form a continuous of fascia metal, and a custom rake cornice. All of the above items were hand cut into inside and outside miters by MetFab’s seasoned craftsmen. Each item was then fit into a jig and pop riveted together.

 

The entire cornice system on the facades was particularly challenging because they had to tie into the brick, siding, and windows of the buildings. This job took approximately 400 sheets (48”x120”) of metal or 8,800 pounds to complete. Many materials and hand cut and crafted miters were needed for this project, which would not have been possible if it weren’t for the skill, artistry, and vast experience of MetFab’s craftsmen.

 

MetFab is, and continues to be, a company that values its artisan skills and working one on one with architects to meet the most exciting demands of modern structures an the specific requirements of historical restorations and custom trim.
