Kiddie Academy, a national franchise system of early learning centers, hired CD Barnes Construction as their General Contractor to build their new 10,000-square-foot childcare center in Wyoming, Michigan. The new facility features nine age-specific classrooms with custom millwork and individual cubbies for each child, a lobby, reception desk, owner’s and director’s offices, a kitchen equipped with commercial appliances, and a staff lounge. Safety was top of mind when designing Kiddie Academy, as with any childcare building. The early learning center includes bullet-resistant film on windows, keycard entry systems, child finger-safe continuous hinges on all doors, alarmed gates, fencing surrounding the entire building and playground areas, and half-height walls and doors in classroom bathrooms. The 5,600 square-foot playground comprises three separate age-appropriate areas divided by fencing with state-of-the-art artificial turf that sits atop a self-draining, interlocking, cushioning system.
“Thank you for the beautiful building. CD Barnes delivered strong, and we are very happy. Your processes and procedures are great, and they work. Throughout construction, CD Barnes demonstrated to be in full control and provided us with accurate information. We are very happy for selecting CD Barnes as our General Contractor. You guys should be proud of what you do.” – Owner, Kiddie Academy
