Center of Rapid Recovery

The plan calls for renovating the existing 4,100 square foot building and building a 3,700 square foot addition. The existing Structure is a 2-story wood frame structure with vinyl siding. The addition will be built of similarly in construction. Based on the programmatic requirements and conceptual lay out and mechanical reports, this project involved providing Helpern with two cost scenarios for the design of the building.
