Clermont Senior Services, Inc. (CSS) is a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to provide community based services to support independent living, including a Meals-on-Wheels program. Since 1972, CSS has offered the Meals-on-Wheels program that provides a nutritious, weekday meal to homebound, older residents. For the past 12 years, the operation was located in the basement of nearby Williamsburg High School. A growing need for updated kitchen facilities and general asset storage prompted CSS to reach out to USDA’s Rural Development (RD) for potential funding sources, including ARRA stimulus monies. RD subsequently provided a financial lending program for construction of the Kitchen Facility as part of their mission to promote economic development by supporting loans for businesses through local banks, credit unions and community-managed lending pools.

CSS teamed up with RD, and the vision transformed into reality with D.E.R. Development Company, LLC breaking ground on foundations for the Kitchen Facility in April 2010. Studio For Architecture, Inc., care of principal architect Rick Pansiera, delivered a comprehensive design along with architectural supervision for the project.

The practical building was conventionally stick-framed with trusses, studs and brick veneer on typical spread footings and poured foundation walls. Aesthetically harmonized with other structures on the existing CSS campus, the building was fenestrated with aluminum entrances and casement windows both featuring a dark bronze finish and clear, low-e glazing. Functional and low maintenance worthy interior finishes included large amounts of VCT flooring throughout and FRP panels in the kitchen and food storage areas. Kitchen equipment was mostly salvaged and reused from the former home in the high school although a kitchen hood and make-up air unit were furnished new as relocation of these units were rendered unbecoming.

Ample asphalt paved parking areas allow for the agency’s fleet of 30 vehicles and vans used for meal delivery and to transport older adults to medical appointments. Due to a need for borrowed fill material to construct the building pad, a retention basin was produced which in addition provided an attractive water feature that is fully fenced for safety concerns. Native and drought tolerant plantings were selected for low maintenance considerations.
