Commercial Construction

Restaurant Construction on Ft. Wayne’s Southwest Side

Lynn Delagrange Inc. considers it an honor to have been contracted to construct another facility for the owners of Shigs in Pit restaurants. This new structure will be their 3rd location, which will be built on St. Rd. 14 just west of Interstate 69. This building will be very similar in appearance to the one we constructed for them on Maplecrest Rd. which opened to the public in 2017. The north restaurant as well as the southwest location now under construction were designed by the architectural firm Kelty Tappy Design, Inc. Although the design is much the same as the north location, customers will enjoy more parking and seating in the restaurant as well as on the dining patio in the rear. Weather permitting we hope to have this new restaurant up and running by early summer.  

Restaurant in Northern Ft. Wayne

With the successful completion of a commercial building expansion for this customer two years ago, the owners requested that we team up with them again on this new venture. We recently completed work on this new Shigs in Pit restaurant on Maplecrest Rd. in Ft. Wayne. The restaurant is quickly becoming a very popular destination for customers who have made the downtown location a success and for those enticed to try something new as well. With architectural services provided by Kelty Tappy Design, Inc., this 5,200 sq. ft. building is designed to feature an extremely convenient carry out area as well as a dining room with large sit-down bar. The atmosphere is rustic/industrial with exposed structural components, polished concrete floors and metal siding. The rustic style carries through to the exterior and the site offers plenty of well lit parking for easy and safe navigation. A patio provides space for outdoor dining on those warm summer nights.

Retail Store Rebuild

After a devastating fire destroyed this historic building, the owner decided to rebuild and relocate the retail portion of their business from across the street into the new structure. They wanted a building that suited their business which is feed and grain sales and desired to use what could be salvaged from the original structure. Lynn designed a building using the original foundation and integrated the new building with the undamaged portions of the original structure. An antique elevator was one piece of the original building that the owner was quite interested in saving and we were able to incorporate that into the design as somewhat of a focal point of the interior.

Office Building North Ft. Wayne

This office building was built for a growing business in Ft. Wayne and was to be their headquarters. The building, located in an industrial park in northern Ft. Wayne, was designed by Lynn with WKM and Associates providing the architectural services. The exterior materials of this building are maintenance free with the use of E.I.F.S., also referred to as “stucco”, for the sidewalls and a standing seam metal roof.
