an existing 2-story medical office building

Renovated into a Private Childcare Facility.

An existing 2-story medical office building was renovated into a private childcare facility. A new entry tower element and a strong color palette gave life to a tired building. The new interior layout wraps around an existing dental office tenant located on the south side of the building which was required to remain in place and operational during construction of the renovation.

A new tower element was designed and a strong color palette was selected to breath new life into a vanilla shell that consisted of awkward geometry.

to meet local building codes

Building Engineering Systems Were Overhauled

We overhauled all major systems; electrical, mechanical, structural, and fire protection. The building was transitioned from a medical office building to a mixed use building.  All mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire suppression systems had to be completely renovated in order to comply with building code for childcare. 

The result is a safe and modern facility within a beautifully preserved historic exterior shell.

What We Can Do For You

Feasibility Studies.  We compare multiple locations by analyzing parcel size, geometry, zoning requirements, available utilities, local demographics, and project complexity. 

Building Design.  We marry your program, size, and style preferences with regional materials and local community characteristics to create a building that is unique to your location and your brand.  

Construction Management.  We manage the bidding process, attend weekly conference calls, and monthly site visits.  We track the schedule and costs to make sure you get open on time and that you’re treated fairly. 

Turn-Key Services.  We walk with you every step of the way through design and construction as your advocate.  We organize your service providers and utilities to make the move-in process smooth.
