The remodeling of the Parish Hall/Gym restrooms will continue this week. The current project is focused on remodeling the men’s restroom. For the next two months, this restroom will be closed.
Why are we doing this?
The current restrooms are not compliant with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA). But this is not just about legal compliance. This is about ministry. We want to better serve those with mobility challenges. Updating the restroom is strongly encouraged by our Disability Ministry Task Force that we might better serve our community. In addition, the appearance of current restrooms is not very welcoming to guests. The restrooms are outdated, dreary and worn.
What does the project include?
The remodeled bathrooms will be legally-compliant with much better availability for those with mobility challenges. The appearance will be updated, and the plumbing and fixtures upgraded.
What will it cost?
The estimate for remodeling the women’s restroom is $105,000. This includes the design work as well as some of the supplies for the entire project. The additional cost of the men’s restroom and hallway remodel is $65,000 How will it be funded? Our Association of Parents and Teachers (APT) has graciously designated $70,000 to begin the project. Thanks be to God! Because of this generous gift, we have decided to begin work on the project. The additional funds needed ($35,000 for the women’s restroom and $65,000 for the men’s restroom and hallway) still needs to be gathered through offerings, gifts, and reserve funds.
When will the men’s restroom be remodeled?
We plan to begin the work on the men's restroom on February 23 now that we have donations and reserves in place to fund it. We do not plan to borrow any funds for this project. Who is working on the project? The architect for this project is Kasten Design and the Design/Plan work is being done by Suarez Design. The General Contractor is Hoag Husted Construction.
