Historic industrial complex is transformed into state-of-the-art rowing center
The Foundry Project Owners purchased a historic, industrial manufacturing complex on the banks of the Cuyahoga River with the goal of transforming the buildings into a new high-performance, state-of-the-art training and education center for the local rowing population. KAI is providing Conceptual Master Planning through Construction Administration Services for the renovation and rehabilitation of the historic complex.
The Phase I Scope of Work most notably includes the renovation of a one-story brick structure to house two state-of-the-art rowing tanks, allowing for indoor rowing simulation year-round. KAI’s Phase I design also incorporates a new Main Entry two-story Stair/ Elevator Vestibule Addition, new Boat Storage areas, new Locker Rooms, the renovation of an existing Apartment, and new parking lots.
Phase II plans include additional Boat Storage Areas, a Parents’ Lounge, Classrooms and Student Study Areas, Meeting Room/Event spaces, and a public Boardwalk.
