Harley Hopkins Family Center Addition and Renovation

The Harley Hopkins Family Resource Center is the hub of the school district’s early childhood program, serving more than 500 families each semester. The building houses offices for the district’s staff, Kaleidoscope preschool, early childhood family education classes and events, a kindergarten screening program, and a non-profit childcare center.

To create an addition for a secure entry with new administrative workspaces, a play area, a waiting room, and a check-in center with reception, TKDA worked under a Program Administration delivery method with Unesco on the Harley Hopkins Family Center. The lobby was moved to another side of the building to accommodate the primary parking and pick-up/drop-off area. Additional parts of the project included a new façade, color and material-matched trash enclosure, secure access and door improvements, bathroom remodeling, HVAC screening, and finish upgrades. We designed a small addition for the new cooling equipment to serve the building, along with an interior finish design for replacing all the ceilings and energy-efficient lighting. Our team also performed the neighborhood meetings, participated in the City approval hearing meetings process, prepared the documents for review and submittals, and performed construction site visits and punch lists.
