Dayton Metropolitan Library
AWARD WINNING LIBRARY AND MASONRYThe main branch of the Dayton Metro Library held a Grand Opening in August 2017. The new 224,000 square foot structure provided a broad scope of work for the Gostomsky Masonry team. In addition to three 65-foot stair towers, two elevator shafts extended from two stories underground to 65 feet into the air to provide access from a new underground parking garage to the new three-story library. In an effort to preserve historical elements of the previous library building, the Gostomsky team took granite from the old building and used it to build the memorial sign across the street with a statue. Standing 40 feet high, it is a block structure wrapped with fabricated pieces of 4.5” thick repurposed granite. The granite was also incorporated into the stairwell bases on the main floor, reflecting light from the beautiful new three-story atrium. Gostomsky Masonry’s work on this project garnered them another MCAD award for Excellence in Masonry.

Evans Scholar House/Miami University
NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCKFounded in 1974, the Evans Scholars award full tuition and living accommodations to the country’s finest golf caddies. The new, highly anticipated 24,000 sq ft Miami University Evans Scholarship House replaces a much smaller house built in the 70’s. Winner of the MCAD Excellence in Masonry award, the new structure was built in less than favorable winter conditions, staying on schedule and under budget. The construction project created living accommodations not only for male caddies, but finally for female caddies as well. This Gostomsky team creation resulted in an entirely new structure of brick and stone, complete with an elevator, as well as a brick and stone veneer.
Western Golf Association State Chairman and an Miami University Evans Scholars alumnus, Joe Desch gave his opinion on the enlivenment of the new era of Evans Scholars. “Moving to a technology rich and comfortable house while also giving the students a great new home is very exciting,” Desch said.

The building provides indoor, secure bike storage, locker rooms, and concessions for park visitors.

Lebanon Correctional Institution
TIGHT TIMELINE. TIGHTER SECURITY.8,313 square feet of new & renovation work at the Lebanon Correctional Institution—a multi-million-dollar project that had to be completed in a tight timeline under very strict security. Work included laying block for a new 1,200 square foot, standalone Armory and 4,443 square feet of renovations and 2,670 sq ft of additions to the Institution’s administration area. Strict security and only one available entrance is very challenging for the crew. They make sure to count and track every tool and piece of equipment at the beginning and the end of the day to ensure optimum security compliance. Work is expected to be complete by the end of Spring 2018.

It allows the scenery to be shifted up and down during a performance. The existing auditorium is about 11,200-square-feet, including the lobby. The new auditorium will be 19,200-square-feet. The size of the stage will increase to 4,800-square-feet, up from 3,000. An October 2018 completion date is expected.

Signage/Dayton International Airport
MOTHER NATUREWinter conditions and no onsite power source didn’t keep us from completing the Dayton International Airport signage on schedule and on budget. A generator, heaters, and plastic sheeting made it possible for us to provide quality work under less than ideal circumstances.
ATTENTION TO DETAILConstructed in 2009, all exterior masonry is a product of Gostomsky Masonry’s efforts. A complex project due to the gables above each of the emergency vehicle bays, the building used 4-inch multicolor split face CMU to provide visual interest to a very sturdily-built fire station.
