Islamic Association of Collin County Progress

McCarthy Architecture is excited to be a part of a new expansion and renovation project at the Islamic Association of Collin County in Plano.  The project consits of adding new second story classrooms atop existing one story wings to the north and south of the Islamic center's main prayer hall, along with a new elevator and renovations to surrounding spaces.  Presently, construction is centered on the north side of the facility, where the existing roof has been removed and steel has been erected for the future classrooms in this area.  Ultimately, new walls will be constructed in this area atop existing first floor tilt-wall panels.  Over the coming weeks, similar work will be taking place on the south side of the facility.

Advantage Academy Progress

At Advantage Academy's expanded Dallas campus, the focus of construction has shifted significantly since our last update.  Construction at new classroom and administration wings is now complete, with progress in the campus' new cafeteria following not far behind.  With the school on summer break, work has primarily shifted to an existing classroom wing, where extensive interior and exterior renovation is taking place to integrate the building with the rest of the campus.  In addition, site work and landscaping are beginning to take place, including the foundations for seven pillars which represent Advantage Academy's "7 Pillars of a Champion".

First Baptist Wylie Progress

At First Baptist Wylie, construction is continuing to move along across the site.  The adult education classrooms which were being renovated in the first phase of work are now complete and in use by the church.  In the existing gym, the second floor slab has been filled in and walls have been framed for classrooms and multipurpose spaces.  In addition, mechanical, electrical and plumbing rough ins are mostly complete.  Currently, acoustical insulation between the classrooms is being installed, preparing for the walls to be closed up.  Most visibly, construction is primarily centered at the new construction portion of the project.  Slabs for new circulation atriums have been poured, and structural steel is currently being erected.  Over the coming weeks, these spaces will begin to take their final shape, and will ultimately simplify circulation throughout the church campus.
