In conjunction with Bankson Engineering, Hayes Design Group Architects was retained to design and construct a new municipal building for Independence Township in the town of Avella, Pennsylvania. The existing municipal building was destroyed by fire, and the community was interested in not only replacing the building but also creating a landmark in the center of the town, which had little of architectural or monumental importance.
HDG designed a new 2,100 SF structure for a prominent corner lot. The contextual design of the exterior included integrating masonry designs from adjacent buildings and featured a new clock tower with the township logo to provide the community with the identity of a town center. The new facility included a large council room and administrative offices.
