Mishawaka, Indiana
Client:
  • Kil Architecture
Service:
  • Site-Civil Design
  • Structural Design & Retrofit
Market Sector:
  • Site-Civil & Landscape

Frost Engineering & Consulting teamed with Kil Architecture to provide site-civil services for the adaptive reuse of this historic building and site. Located in the heart of downtown Mishawaka, this was a keystone project in the city’s revitalization effort with a total construction cost of approximately $7.2 million.

Originally the local high school before being converted to a furniture store, this project transformed the building to serve the community’s senior residents as an apartment complex. This change in use necessitated that additional parking, accessible green spaces and utility services be provided to ensure a high quality of living for the building’s occupants.  Frost Engineering designed all site improvements including re-grading of the site, underground stormwater drainage systems and an enlarged parking lot, correlating them with electrical, gas, sewer and water utilities.  Site utility improvements were further complicated by ongoing city plans for simultaneous reconstruction of neighboring roadway projects, requiring that the FROST team deal closely with multiple parties to ensure proper tie-ups and efficient scheduling.
