Some info about the project.
Client: Kimberly Turner
Size: 10,675 sf
Date Completed: in progress
As part of a pro-bono project, Aptus worked with Ms. Turner to facilitate a conceptual design for a day care center. The original building, located at 7700 S Vincennes in Chicago is an old 10,675 SF warehouse building that is intended to be repurposed into the day care center.
There are two buildings to be renovated. The north building is two stories with a basement and the south building is one story. There is also an adjacent empty lot.
The program included: secure entry and reception; daycare/classrooms for infants, toddler, preschool, school age; associated toilet rooms; outdoor play areas; administration offices; kitchen; lunch/activity room; storage rooms; and a drop off/parking area.
Several different options for redeveloping and renovating the building for the daycare business were proposed for owner review and pricing.
