Hickory Construction is pleased to announce the completion of the first phase of The Restoration House Village. The Village’s two new facilities serve The Restoration House’s mission of helping single mothers and their children by providing transitional housing and other means of community support. Prior to the Village, the organization was only able to serve a limited number of residents at multiple locations spread out across the Knoxville area.
The initial phase of the Village includes the project’s first apartment building and a 4,000-square-foot community center. The 7,000-square-foot apartment building features four 1,100-square-foot, two-bedroom, single-bath units flanked by two 1,300-square-foot three-bedroom, one-bath apartments. The community center houses six offices, a workroom, two classrooms, a meeting room for up to 75, a teen room, a play room and a kitchen for hosting cooking and nutrition classes.
Hickory began construction on December 9, 2014 under the leadership of superintendent Rob Savage and project manager Jim Galbraith. The community center was completed in late May 2015, and the apartment building was finished in mid-June 2015.
Thanks to the contributing efforts of the architectural firm, Studio Four Design, and the owner’s representative, Management Solutions, the project was completed on budget and on schedule. The Restoration House serves a great need in the Knoxville community, and Hickory Construction thoroughly enjoyed contributing to the project.
