Long® Fence Opens Office in Odenton, Maryland
New Long® Fence Office is Designed to be Green
Capitol Heights, MD – March 31, 2010 – Long® Fence, one of the largest residential and commercial fencing contractors on the East Coast, opened a new office in Odenton, MD on January 18, 2010. The new office was designed to incorporate green building practices.
The 60,000 square foot office and warehouse facility incorporates elements such as recycled cotton insulation, renewable linoleum flooring and ceiling tiles made from recycled materials. The new Odenton facility replaces the office on Robert Crain Highway in Crofton, which has been in operation since 1968. That building has now been sold.
“We are very excited about our move to Odenton,” said Mike Ritter, Jr., vice-president of Long® Fence. “Our new state-of-the-art eco-friendly facility will help us continue to grow our business and better service our customers’ needs, while providing our employees with a first class place to work.”
Purple Cherry Architects of Annapolis, MD designed the Odenton office, one of three operated by Long® Fence in Maryland. Cathy Purple Cherry, principal of Purple Cherry Architects, said, “The main structure is designed to be “green”. The structural steel is 75% recycled. This is yet another example of efficient and intelligent design.”
