DeJohn Funeral Home

Chesterland, Ohio

DeJohnThe DeJohn Funeral Home is located on Route 306, south of Mayfield Road in Chesterland, Ohio on a semi-wooded lot. It is a custom-designed 10,500 square foot new construction funeral home that features decorative, exceptionally detailed masonry construction as well as custom millwork throughout and easy handicap accessibility features including ramps and bathrooms that ensure the building meets all ADA requirements.

The spacious funeral home can accommodate 295 guests and families, and the design consists of three parlor rooms, office areas, and a large greeting area. The parlor rooms can be combined into one large room or used as three smaller ones due to the movable, concealed partition walls. The two offices are located in the rear of the building, and the daily operating functions DeJohnare also hidden from the public in order to allow the guests to focus on the celebration of life instead of noisy distractions. The foyer showcases a water feature atop the fireplace, which provides a soothing respite and a sense of calmness during the difficult times.

Additionally, DeJohn Funeral Home offers a cozy coffee lounge to relax in as well as a sierra-colored covered patio with a fireplace, which is located in the back of the building overlooking the serene landscape and offering a temporary escape during trying times. Moreover, three other fireplaces are located inside the building to provide comfort and warmth to guests and families. Another unique feature of this project is the state of the art, modern LED lighting on the interior and exterior, which is the most energy efficient technology available.

Furthermore, Allega worked with the owners of the DeJohn Funeral Home to build a building for generations to come; it even has a backup generator to make sure that neither the families nor the services are disrupted during power outrages.

DeJohnConcrete and asphalt pavement parking areas lead to a Porte Cochere, a covered driveway area for cars to pull in, protecting guests from harsh elements. Additionally, the heated, sierra-colored, concrete sidewalks, which are located at the main entrances, allow easier and safer access to the funeral home, especially during the cold, snowy winter months.

Allega is the general contractor and design/builder for this project, and Joseph L. Myers is the architect and construction manager. The project commenced in Spring 2015, and the new funeral home is projected to be open in early 2016.
