Kapp Construction is pleased to announce the completion of a renovation project for the CRSI Strive program in Clark County. Clark County Strive now occupies the former McKinnon Flowers property on N. Limestone Street in Springfield, where pre-vocational and life skills learning opportunities are provided to qualified Clark County residents with intellectual/ developmental disabilities. The Strive program provides horticultural, food service, light assembly and order processing learning opportunities for at least thirty Clark County individuals, according to Dave Faulkner, program development administrator.

Initially, the unoccupied space was full of debris and scrap, and the cleanup was primarily performed by consumers
and supervising staff from the Urbana Strive program. Kapp Construction crews then worked closely with CRSI to renovate the 4,500-square-foot facility. Nearly 1,000 square feet of greenhouse space was converted to a production and packaging area with additional accessible restrooms, leaving the rest of the greenhouse for Aquaponic gardening. An adjacent service garage now serves as office space, also with restrooms, a kitchenette and laundry facilities.

The original florist production area and coolers have been transformed into three offices, a kitchenette and lobby area. Complete with a new roof, HVAC system, electrical and plumbing services and exterior siding, CRSI is excited to partner with Clark County and is ready to enroll qualified individuals.
