The Ronald McDonald House originated in 1984. It was created as a home away from home for families of children who were undergoing medical treatment at area hospitals. The Ronald McDonald House supports both short and long-term stays.
Peter Schwabe, Inc. was contracted for the original construction of this four-story complex located near Children's Hospital. During that time Peter Schwabe played an integral role in the fundraising to make this heart felt House possible. Our involvement has continued since time that Dan Schwabe, President of Peter Schwabe, Inc., continues as an active member of the Board at the Ronald McDonald House serving for many years.
In 2003, Peter Schwabe was called on again to add a 16,000 sq ft, 4-story addition. The project included a new wing with kitchen & computer rooms, along with additional guest rooms to accommodate more families and an extensive remodel of the existing guest rooms. Children's tile designs enhance the interiors of the project adding warmth and hominess to the individual spaces.
In 2013, PSI began the latest expansion of the over 38,000 sq ft addition to the Ronald McDonald House. The project highlights include the construction of 36 new guest rooms, increasing the capacity to 71 guest rooms, a new parking structure, new common areas and study rooms, a music therapy room, fitness room, the addition of 3 new kitchens, the re-model of 2 existing kitchens and dining areas.
