Educational Remodeling - Featured Projects

For colleges to pass muster with discerning parents and their talented progeny, they need to demonstrate that they can meet high education standards. That includes everything from well-equipped classrooms, in beautiful and well-maintained buildings, safe and secure residences and top-notch sports facilities.

That calls for a lot of construction and remodeling, something that is keeping us at Frank H. Stowell & Sons on our toes. The challenges, as seen below, range in size and type, but have a common theme. Build as if your child was going to be spending four years here.

Sorority Ramps Remodel

Sorority Ramps Remodel

Education Educational Remodeling

While we, at Frank H. Stowell & Sons, are more likely to remodel interiors than perform exterior work, we have done our fair share of ADA ramps.  Invariably, creating space for an addition to a building’s footprint is the major challenge with inclement weather a close second.

When it came to these very attractive ramps for two adjacent Sororities, the challenges were more interesting.

Student Residence

Education Educational Remodeling

When it was time to upgrade these student residences, the facilities department of this prestigious school knew they were opening the proverbial can of worms. The superficial problems were obvious but what would they discover when the process got underway?

The goal was to make the residences safe, secure and comfortable. Note that comfortable should not be confused with luxurious. Then there was the natural wear and tear. Much of the plumbing and wiring went back to the building’s construction (1920s) and the bathroom fixtures looked about as old. Plaster walls were so bad in places that complete dry-walling was necessary.

ADA Remodel

ADA Disability Ramp Addition

Education Educational Remodeling

Anybody who has ever been in a wheelchair, or who has accompanied someone in a wheelchair, will know only too well the challenge of navigating through the myriad of obstacles that surround us.

Addressing these challenges with ADA (American Disability Act) ramps is no trivial matter. There’s the issue of fitting the ramp in a confined space and all the safety regulations – everything from the correct amount of slope, width and grip to the proper size of landings to allow for turning, to when and where handrails and edge-protection are required.
