LEOPARDO BREAKS GROUND ON NEW CHILD AND FAMILY CENTER IN ILLINOIS
CARPENTERSVILLE, ILL. — Leopardo Cos. Inc. has broken ground on a new 27,000-square-foot child and family center for Children’s Home + Aid in Carpentersville, approximately six miles north of Elgin. The site for the facility is at 229 Lake Marian Road. The Jerri Hoffmann Child + Family Center will rebuild the existing Tom Thumb Community Childcare Center, which has been serving at-risk children and families in the Carpentersville area since 1970. The new facility will expand the center’s capacity from 110 to 230 students. The center will include 15 classrooms, a gross motor skills room, outdoor play area, administrative spaces, staff lounge and kitchen. Leopardo is serving as general contractor on the project, which is set for completion in early summer 2015. Designhaus Inc. is providing architectural services for the project.
