Kansas City, Missouri
This rooftop hospitality building is located on the uppermost floor of the Cosentino's Market parking garage at the corner of 14th and Main directly adjacent to the Jones Pool. The building program consists of four water closets, three urinals, six lavatories, a drinking fountain, and a small storage area.
The purpose of this building is to allow the City to serve patrons that desire to eat lunch or walk and enjoy the sun during the work week. During the evening hours and on weekends when the weather is favorable, wedding receptions and civic events can be hosted on the rooftop comfortable accommodating up to 600 patrons.
Although the City required a conventional "brick & mortar" delivery method, Pendulum learned valuable lessons from this project. Given the right circumstances the implementation of a prefabricated "off-grid" delivery method would allow the installation of an identical building for approximately half the budget and in half the construction time.
