Project Update: Harrisonburg Rockingham Child Day Care Center

The Harrisonburg Rockingham Child Day Care Center is heading into the final weeks of construction for phase 1. Walls have been removed and others added. Doors are relocated to the right locations and electrical outlets have been added. The restrooms have been shaped and the rough-ins are ready for fixtures. Best of all, the drywall is almost done so the paint to roll.

Harrisonburg Construction is hard at work executing the plan that we worked out with the building owners to maximize the functionality of this existing building for their day care. Phase 1 construction will provide the rooms and spaces needed to open this fall for infants up to pre-school students. Phase 2 is planned and ready to start (they could use your financial support to get everything done they need). We have learned a lot about grants, day care standards, and faith on this project from some amazing clients with a wonderful mission – to provide affordable day care in Harrisonburg.

Many of the exterior changes, including the playground, will come in phase 2 construction. Phase 1 construction is focused to allow the facility to open the functional space by this fall. We will also update the exterior of the facility and replace the windows.

The classrooms on the north and west side of the building have tall windows and lots of natural light.

We are adding a window into this east classroom to bring more natural light into the space.

The protective cover is starting to be removed from the stainless steel in the kitchen – do they look like portals into another dimension to you?

Stay tuned for more updates as this project starts to get paint, doors installed, and a ceiling in place!

If you are thinking about opening a day care, give us a call so we can help evaluate your building options.
