Providence Cristo Rey High School is a private, Catholic, college preparatory school that is affordable to low-income families in Indianapolis. The students learn important life skills in the typical classroom environment as well as working one day a week in an office atmosphere of one of Providence's corporate partners. Fifth Third Bank, Ice Miller LLP, the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, and Eli Lilly and Company are just a few of the amazing companies involved in offering this unique and invaluable learning experience.
Providence currently has roughly 200 students but has the space for approximately 400. The kitchen was hindering its ability to be able to accept more students and maximize the space of the entire school building. In the process of remodeling a few different spaces in Providence, the contractor Shiel Sexton, one of Providence's corporate partners, called on C&T Design to help figure out how to rework their kitchen space while being extremely budget concious and getting them to a place to be able to grow to their full capacity and feed all of the students everday.
C&T Design worked with several of our manufacturer partners to get Providence the best price possible. One particular manufacturer who helped us tremendously cut costs on this project was Randell of Unified Brands and their Indianapolis rep Phil Powell of Allied Technologies who provided the serving line on the project. Thank you to C&T Design's project manager Brian Hutson for successfully executing this project that was in development for five years. C&T Design donated all design and project management fees on the job. These contributions helped cut costs on the project by roughly 30%.
