Orlando, FL – Ace Electrical is currently at work on the electrical contract to rebuild and remodel the Russell Home for Atypical Children in Orlando. Standing since the 1940s, the Russell Home was the nation’s first non-profit institution for brain damaged children, and has since welcomed hundreds of children. Now the home is getting some much need renovations and an expansion to allow for more residents.
The new buildings will include dormitories, three new bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining room seating 48, a media room and a physical therapy room, expanding the home from 9,000 to 15,000 square feet. As part of the project, all existing bathrooms throughout the facility will also be remodeled. Ace is doing the wiring, lighting and installation of all electrical components for the new buildings as well as the remodeled areas.
Providing around-the-clock specialized care in a home-like atmosphere to youth with special needs, the facility will remain open during the rebuild and remodel. Renovations began on October 14th, 2015, and are expected to be completed next spring.
