TVAR Chapel Renovations

The latest construction phases at The Village at Rockville (TVAR) include interior renovation of a 5,400 SF chapel, lobby, and restrooms. Shockey removed and replaced flooring, casework, millwork, and lighting, adding architectural ceiling and shadow boxes and a new Holtkamp pipe organ to the chapel. To better accommodate walkers and wheelchairs, chairs have replaced pews. A lift was installed to allow access to the chancel, and lighting was improved with the addition of stained glass windows and glass doors. A new sound system now communicates directly to hearing aids.

In multi-phased construction projects like the ones at TVAR, both the team and the plan must remain flexible to allow for inevitable changes or obstacles that will be encountered. At the request of the owner, a number of projects on this campus are being turned over in phases. Constant, open communication between the many team members and stakeholders involved in TVAR have helped to provide a number of successes for everyone thus far.

Shockey takes the lead, as always, in keeping information flowing to the right parties.
