Sheakley Center for Youth

Location: Cincinnati, OH
Schedule: July 2016 – August 2017
Cost: $852,997
Type of Project: Concrete Repair and Masonry
Client: Model Group

 

A 65,000 SF industrial building from 1912 was re-fitted to become the new location for the Sheakley Center for Youth. The Center is an all-in-one facility for homeless youth. There is a day shelter on the first floor, an overnight shelter with individual dorms and efficiency apartments for independent living. SSRG worked with Model Group to revitalize the aged and deteriorated structure.

Concrete columns, beams, and parapets were all prepped, formed, and poured back with new concrete material. In addition to the concrete frame restoration, SSRG completed all masonry work for the project. Concrete block infills, new stone sills at all window openings, brick restoration at existing masonry walls throughout, and thin brick veneer on the exterior.

The center opened in December of 2017.
