W.A. Rose has a longstanding relationship with Holy Names University, a school that’s noted for its diversity, located on 60 wooded acres in the Oakland Hills. Kennedy Art Center lacked an ADA bathroom on the main floor, so converting the bathroom was the primary goal of the construction project. We also transformed an existing art gallery into a classroom and installed four new dual-glazed aluminum windows.
We began by demolishing the existing closet, entryway and floor and opened areas for the new windows. We removed the existing ceiling in the bathroom and, because this was an older building, we did asbestos testing. We framed the new bathroom, installed insulation, drywall and durable, tile flooring along with Bobrick bathroom accessories.
Kennedy Art Center now has a bright new classroom and an ADA bathroom, making the Center more accessible to every student, faculty member and visitor.
