Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky

Category: Renovations

Paul Hemmer Company managed an extensive renovation of one of the region's most notable structures ‒ the Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky's administration building, perched high atop a hillside in Covington’s Devou Park.


Built 90 years ago, the building was designed by Samuel Hannaford and Sons, the architect firm known for such regional landmarks as Music Hall, Cincinnati City Hall and the Cincinnati Observatory.  The project included complete renovation and construction of new interior facilities and capabilities within the remarkable building, while preserving its valuable historic character.

 

The renovation involved many facets. The building's systems were replaced, and the structure was made ADA-compliant, which included the addition of an elevator to service all four floors of the building, wheelchair-accessible ramps, and ADA-compliant restrooms.   A fire suppression system was also added. The lower level and first floor was renovated to accommodate a Therapeutic Day School, a joint venture between Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky (CHNK) and Covington Independent Public Schools that allows traditional academic services to be married with behavioral/ mental health treatment for adolescents.


The design team included M+A Architects, Slesser Engineering and KLH Engineers.
