The Family Place

This Design Build renovation project focused on the conversion of 30,000 SF of the former Utley Library into a new day care facility. The childcare center features a kitchen, cafeteria, and administrative offices for the center's dedicated and caring staff.

 As part of the project the second level was expanded to meet the spatial needs of the center. The basement level was converted from storage areas into an adult recreation facility, with multi use space and a commercial kitchen area. The project also required site improvements for vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Challenges included the removal of lead based paint and asbestos abatement prior to demolition work.
