Festool

Festool relocated its central hub for U.S. and Canadian operations to just outside of Indianapolis. The facility includes a production warehouse, training facility, and a repair center.

CSO’s first project with Festool included a new building to house the North American corporate offices, a distribution/warehouse facility, and a national training center. During the design process, CSO worked closely with the parent company and their architects in Germany to provide a building that represented the corporate image reminiscent of their German facilities while utilizing traditional U.S. construction materials and techniques.

Ten years later, due to an increased presence in the North American and the need to add manufacturing capabilities to their facility, CSO worked with Festool again on a $6.8 million project that doubled their space and provided a new 2-story office space. CSO was tasked with providing an expansion that would complement the original building and that could be completed without interrupting day to day operations.

Just three years after the office expansion, Festool called on CSO once again to design an 80,000 square foot expansion that will be used primarily for assembly and distribution.

Lebanon Public Safety

CSO worked closely with representatives of the City of Lebanon, and the Lebanon Fire Department to design this new public safety building and fire station to serve the south side of Lebanon, Indiana.

The one-story, 17,133 square foot, 4-bay fire station can accommodate 12 fire fighters along with Emergency Medical Service staff and has 8 apparatus positions. The exterior is a very modern design that uses precast concrete and curtainwall as the primary materials. A large community room has also been provided for use by the public.
