Architect: Dover Design and Management Group
Total Project Cost: $2 Million
The Fuel Mart Truck Stop in Perrysburg, Ohio was a busy place but its building and facilities were sadly out of date and no longer adequate for the volume of business it handled monthly. Bogner Construction Company was hired to tear down the old Fuel Mart building and rebuild it from the ground up, including its parking lot and gasoline and diesel pumps outside.
Bogner began the project with the demolition of the existing structure from the roof to the first floor slab. After the demolition was complete and all the debris removed, the construction job began. The renovation project was to rebuild an approximately 6,000 finished square feet of building with a retail area, two mini-restaurants, a trucker’s lounge and multiple public bathrooms that included some shower facilities.
The interior construction consisted of metal studs with drywall walls and finishes on some walls of thin brick. Cedar trellis beams formed the open ceiling framework inside under the roof and ceramic tile floors covered the retail and bathroom areas. The external walls were covered in finishes of cementious siding.
Outside construction projects included repaving of all the parking areas, both in the front and rear of the store as well as installing new exterior light fixtures. The old gasoline and diesel fuel dispensers were replaced with new pumps. Finally, a variety of custom signage was installed both inside the store and on the exterior of it. A good bit of the signage was neon and had to be installed on raceways.
When completed, the new truck stop store had new shower facilities and well-maintained restrooms as well as a nice truckers’ lounge. A fountain drink bar and fresh coffee bar occupies one section of the store while a wall of refrigerated drink cases and a walk-in beer cooler occupy another. On one wall is a small Subway restaurant next to a Hunt Brothers Pizza. After ordering at their counters, there are five small tables for diners to sit at while eating. Fuel Mart Truck Stop now has the space to serve all their customers’ needs.
