Our mission is to build meaningful buildings in which to live, work and play. These are not just words to us, but an opportunity to impact people in an amazing way. We are extremely humbled and grateful to be able to work on the addition of Ronald McDonald House in Madison.
Without the services of Ronald McDonald House, families would be forced to choose between being with their child and incurring the financial burden and emotional toll of being away from home or not being close to their child. The Ronald McDonald House helps families stay together while away from home during some of the hardest times they will ever face. This addition will allow Ronald McDonald House to help even more families.
As Madison’s medical care has become increasingly sought-after, Ronald McDonald House Madison has seen an increase in need for its services. Last year, there were 461 night stays Ronald McDonald House Madison was not able to accommodate. Founded in 1993, Ronald McDonald House Madison has housed more than 26,000 families since it opened.
The Ronald McDonald House expansion will increase square footage from 17,600 to 32,000 and will provide an additional 13 guest rooms. The project will also include landscaped green space; expanded indoor and outdoor play areas; remodeled common areas and an improved kitchen and dining room; added underground and surface parking; more convenient guest access and improved entry security system; and a quiet room where guests and visitors can gather privately.
We are so proud to be part of this project. Precast on the addition includes nearly 9,000 square feet of hollowcore and solid slabs, 10 columns and 18 beams. The precast will be used for the underground parking area and to create the podium for the addition.
