KPH tapped for the new International Academy in Wauwatosa

KPH Construction is proud to announce it is the Construction Manager for fire protection of the new Wisconsin International Academy (WIA) in Wauwatosa. The WIA, a teaching and student housing center for foreign students attending local high schools, will be located in the former Days Inn hotel at 11811 West Blue Mound Road in Wauwatosa.

KPH Construction is tasked with providing sprinklers, as well as removing and replacing the roof. Our team will work with the WIA on design, budgets and bidding of additional and forthcoming renovations to the site and building. The full renovation, which will be completed this summer, includes converting the rooms to housing, filling the indoor pool to make a gym, and erecting a metal perimeter fence. The 127-room facility expects to have 150 students, mostly from China, in residence by the end of summer.

We are honored to be working with the Wisconsin International Academy and, led by our own Vice President of Education Dr. Matt Gibson, are bring experience in facilities renovations to this quick-turn project.

 – Keith P. Harenda, President and CEO of KPH Construction.

The international academy, based in Glendale, houses and provides English-language classes for students attending Martin Luther, Pius XI, Dominican, Catholic Memorial and St. Thomas More high schools.
