The 38,000 sq ft Ronald McDonald expansion project, included remodel and new construction, almost doubling the size of the existing building. In addition a new 34,000 sq ft 2 level parking deck, for a total 72,000 sq ft project area. With Peter Schwabe, Inc’s pre-construction planning and on-site construction management, the project realized a $130,000 budget cost savings and remained open during the entire construction process.
The project highlights include the construction of 36 new guest rooms, a new 2 level parking deck, new common areas and study rooms, a music therapy room, fitness room, the addition of 3 new kitchens, one with a commercial prep area, and the re-model of 2 existing kitchens with dining areas.
The Ronald McDonald House project was the recipient of the Milwaukee Business Journal Best New Development or Renovation Award.
