The continued success of Eden Place and multiple meetings with neighborhood residents, led to the design of a state of the art learning center; however, the project has stalled because Illinois has yet to send Grant funds. Ioannis Davis of ID Architecture worked with Ozinga Ready Mix and NuDura to design an Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) facility that will provide many long term benefits to the organization and community. Some of the benefits of ICF construction include minimal long term maintenance costs, greatly reduced energy costs, greatly reduced sound transmission which is important due to the buildings location near rail road tracks, and a structure strong enough to act as a severe weather shelter for the local community. The foundation and floors are already in place for the new building, but we need your help to complete the learning center.
The multi-purpose facility will offer classrooms, a community gathering space, and a community coffee shop. The plans also include provisions for a green roof and solar panels for additional learning opportunities. This highly sustainable learning center will expand the opportunities available to local residents and embody the resilience of the Fuller Park community. Please help restart this building project by donating what you can and by sharing the campaign with others. We appreciate all your help.
