The PROP Shop recently finished a 2,500 square foot addition that allows for more privacy and more space for serving families in need.
Why build an addition?
In 2011, The PROP Shop’s Board of Directors began focusing on improving the space and services for families in need. The existing client room experienced significant backlogs and had little privacy. Building an addition to the building was critical to improving processes and privacy for families in need.
DSO Architecture designed the building at no cost; Hansen Thorp Pellinen Olson, Inc (HTPO) donated time for land surveying, civil engineering, and landscape plans. Hennepin Technical College built the interior as part of its carpentry class this fall. Three Eagle Scout projects were completed on various landscaping projects in 2012 and two more are currently being planned for 2013. For a Silver Award, a Girl Scout Troop built a play area for kids that will into the new space. The PROP Shop saw tremendous community support for this project. Thank you to all of our partners!
