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, including removal and replacement of flooring, casework, millwork, and lighting, as well as the addition of architectural ceiling and shadow boxes and a new Holtkamp pipe organ in the chapel. To better accommodate walkers and wheelchairs, chairs have replaced the pews. A lift was installed to allow access to the chancel, and the 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, the team and the plan must be flexible in order to accommodate 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, with earlier components having been delivered months ahead of the next phase of construction. Constant, open communication between the many team members and stakeholders involved in TVAR have made for a number of successes for everyone thus far.

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