Pediatric Choice - Lenoir City Practice
(Visit their Website)
Planning for a Spring 2014 move-in date, the new "state-of-the-art" facility for Pediatric Choice will encompass almost 8,000 square feet of space that will bring an "African Modern" theme to children's healthcare. This facility will be one of a kind, that will provide an exciting and welcoming experience for children as they are dealing with what is typically a "fear". Use of modern materials in some very innovative ways are the hallmark of this design, and it will serve a landmark along Interstate 75 as one passes by Lenoir City.

As a collaboration of effort with the Tennessee Department of Transportation, this challenge came to us do to the State of Tennessee's mandate to reconstruct the existing viaduct that is currently in physical contact with the S&H facility. Our charge was to design a solution that would clear the right-of-way, while also working to keep the Owner "whole" in the process. Overall this effort encompasses more than 40,000 square feet, and is planned for a Spring 2014 start of construction.

Crievewood United Methodist Church
(Visit their Website)
This amazing congregation has not worked through a significant capital improvement effort since the construction of its original building back in the mid-1950's, however due to growth in ministry and a change in the local demographics, the church leadership felt a calling to bring the facility to current codes and provide a more usable and inviting space for the congregation and community. The heart of this effort will be a new Multipurpose Fellowship Hall & Kitchen Addition to serve about 250 people, which will be supported by a large renovation effort to meet the needs of growing licensed Daycare Program and vibrant Youth Ministry. Construction will begin at the start of 2014.

Goin's Residence - 422 Gay Street
The word "challenge" is an understatement as we continue to work diligently through this effort of converting the upper floor of an old downtown warehouse into a private residence along the "Main Street" of Knoxville. A strong effort of analyzing the existing conditions, combined with a concerted and direct communication with the local building authorities, has allowed us to generate a path to create an exciting two-story space with large open areas and exposed heavy timbers and brick...including the addition of a new roof deck for outdoor enjoyment.
