Charter School

Citizens of the World

McCownGordon was selected to renovate an existing building in Kansas City, Missouri to make a new home for the Citizens of the World Charter School. McCownGordon worked closely with Gastinger Walker Architects in the preconstruction phase to create the best value for Citizens of the World. 
The project included new HVAC equipment, distribution, new electrical service, lighting and fire alarm, new fire suppression system, the relocation of one restroom and renovations to additional restrooms, and a complete build-out to the building to accommodate learning spaces and education-focused aesthetics. Additional spaces within the school included classrooms, staff office space, multi-purpose room, reception area and staff break rooms.
