The Project consisted of converting a former dormitory building, constructed in the late 1950s, into a facility that serves multiple functions, both for childcare as well as teaching. The project serves both as a daycare and preschool, including for children who are vision impaired, as well as a learning laboratory for students of the University of Kentucky interested in teaching early childhood learning. The building contains a daylight basement level and two floors above. Marrillia constructed a total of four new preschool classrooms, two toddler classrooms and an infant classroom. Offices for the Early Childhood department for the University’s instruction as well as for the Visually Impaired Preschool Services are housed on the topmost level. The project required site improvements, selective demolition, interior and exterior concrete, masonry, structural steel, wood framing, new replacement windows, a new elevator and elevator shaft general finishes, fire protection, HVAC, plumbing and electrical work.
