Buxton Kubik Dodd Design Collective
Buxton Kubik Dodd Design Collective is the architect and mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineer for a 30,500 square foot, multistory mixed-use building for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Springfield Inc. A portion of the second floor will be leased for youth services and an overnight shelter. Officials say the building includes a two-story atrium, dining facilities to feed up to 200 kids daily, a high school-sized basketball court, collaborative office spaces, conference rooms, and classrooms and maker spaces. The building is a multistory, pre-engineered metal structure with a facade of brick, metal panel and aluminum, and a glass storefront. Architectural canopies and overhangs create an outdoor patio area. Nonprofit officials previously set a $12 million goal for the teen center’s capital campaign, which includes three years of operating expenses. Ross Construction Group LLC is the general contractor and additional engineering work is by Anderson Engineering Inc., civil; and J&M Engineering LLC, structural. The project is slated for completion in August 2024.
The congregation at Crossway Baptist Church is building a children’s wing at the west end of the church, and beginning in 2024, it will be home to a Christian academy.
