As an Architect of Record for the Public Building Commission of Chicago, TKB was enlisted to renovate the 38,000 SF Career Technical Education (CTE) wing of the Prosser Career Academy. Driven by the need to accommodate expanded career programs, the fast track project will accommodate a broad range of vocational programs, from culinary arts to HVAC, computer and solar labs to auto shop. Accessibility upgrades include new toilets, new building hardware and lockers equalizing opportunities for all students. The complete project budget is approximately $12 million, including equipment for vocational labs.
The final result will provide expanded opportunities for CPS students’ future workplace choices. TKB’s design work began in November, 2018; teaching in the renovated wing will resume in October, 2019.
