Kenall supported the modernization of the Irvington Village by providing full architectural and engineering design and construction phase services for the interior and exterior modernization for the Housing Authority of the City of Houston residential development complex. The original 27-building, 318-unit apartment project was constructed in 1943. The modernization, which encompassed five phases, included both renovation of existing buildings and construction of new community center and maintenance facility. Kenall also designed a new maintenance facility during the final phase of the project.
As a component of the modernization, Kenall accomplished architectural and engineering planning, design, and construction management for a new 11,000 square foot, two-story Administrative and Community Center, including meeting facilities, educational classrooms, kitchen and pantry, storage areas, and laundry facility – designed to serve the renovated 350-unit residential development
