This was a multi-phase design-build project that entailed utility separation between two sides of the building. Ample renovations were also completed for Berks Technical Institute. Phase one involved renovations to the conference room and entry lobby / reception area, while phase two entailed renovating the usable rooms upstairs, which included the library, the lecture hall, CDL classroom, mail room, and four bathrooms. Updates to the HVAC, Plumbing, and Electrical labs were also completed during operating school hours.
The Goddard School provides a high-quality, play-based learning program that is trusted by families throughout the United States. With over 525 locations throughout 38 states, this new early childhood development center has 10 classrooms capable of occupying up to 152 children between the ages of 6 weeks and 5 years old. This 1.5-acre lot includes an outdoor area for both toddlers and pre-school aged children.
D&B Construction, was chosen as the trusted partner for the completion of this ground-up construction endeavor. The transformative journey began with the demolition phase in late June 2022. This process involved the removal of a vacant restaurant that had stood abandoned at the site for an impressive span of almost 15 years. This marked the initial step in paving the way for the construction of The Goddard School's new early childhood development center. Under the stewardship of D&B Construction, this construction project aspires to bring to life a state-of-the-art facility that will soon provide an enriching and nurturing environment for children.
D&B Construction was the principal contractor for Riverfront Federal Credit Union’s new three-level state-of-the-art headquarters. Providing cutting edge technology helps RFCU achieve their mission of putting each of their members in a better financial position. This new branch includes a personalized concierge service experience that employs 21st century technology.
The drive thru consists of three Interactive Teller Machines. An ITM is like a traditional ATM but includes a virtual set up that allows the customer service rep to assist you in real time from anywhere in the world. The pandemic encouraged RFCU to invest in these remote customer service capabilities. Not only will this provide customers with safety and peace of mind, but choosing this new banking technology in lieu of the standard ATM and tube system will also help keep RFCU ahead of the curve for many years to come.
Riverfront still firmly believes in human interaction and the value of face to face banking. The interior of the new branch is set up in a more interactive manner than that of a traditional bank. In addition to the traditional teller station, self-service kiosks are also available through Video Integrated Realtime Assistance (VIRA), which is a video teller that enables customers to interact face to face with a "live" Riverfront representative. Members can relax in a comfortable seating area as they complete financial transactions. A café is also available to the public, further emphasizing Riverfront's commitment to customer experience and creating an inviting environment.
D&B Construction completed a design-build project creating a modern and upscale educational facility for The Morgan School, which serves clients in the Exeter, Mt. Penn, Daniel Boone, Amity, and Pottstown areas. Prior to starting the ground-up construction, Team D&B demolished an existing two-story residential dwelling to allow space for this new cutting-edge daycare facility. The project included designing and building classrooms and facilities for children and adults. The exterior stone wall is a highlight of this project.
D&B Construction completely renovated Bean Funeral Home’s Shillington location. This renovation included updating the interior structure of the flower room, reposing room, casket display room, and bathrooms. A new custom kitchenette with a lounge area and a redesigned sitting area completed the project. We installed new facilities throughout the building, including windows, lighting, hardwood flooring, carpet and tile, painting, wall paper, and plumbing fixtures. An additional 2,600 square feet was also built from the ground up to match the existing building's intricate exterior.
D&B Construction provided construction management and general contracting services for Reading Dove Christian Ministry Center, now known as Life Church. This project's interior renovations included refurbishing the main worship sanctuary, updating bathrooms, and their all-purpose room. Construction also included the installation of an elevator and ADA ramps to meet requirements for handicapped access to the building.
