In 1981, while associated with another firm, Bruce McMillan served as the Project Architect for architectural services on the 6,700 square foot Riley County Seniors' Service Center Phase 1 which was a Community Development Block Grant project. In 1989, our firm joint-ventured to provide services for the second phase of this project. The needs of the users dictated that a building be designed to provide maximum flexibility for large and small groups, meal serving, recreational activities, administrative space, and meeting areas. For the past 35 years, our firm has assisted in upgrades, remodelings, and further improvements to the facility.
By virtue of the very intense use this facility receives, a 3,400 square foot multi-use meeting and administration wing was designed and completed through a CDBG grant. The added space provides for large and small groups using the space simultaneously. In addition, portions of the building can be cordoned off as the need arises for specific meetings or private group functions.
In 2009 and 2012, upgrades to the restroom's, interior and exterior finishes, new windows, and mechanical components were completed as components of various projects ongoing in the facility.
In 2017, upgrades to the kitchen were completed. All work was funded in part by Community Development Block Grants.
