First built in 1967, Hawthorne Place Apartments in Independence, MO is comprised of 745 units and currently houses nearly 2,000 residents. Over two and half years, Roanoke completed renovations to all residential units as well as renovations and a 4,000 square foot addition to the community building.

Upgrades included new energy efficient appliances, flooring, cabinets, countertops, all entry and select interior doors, electrical and plumbing fixtures, heating and hot water equipment, and improved ventilation. Thirteen apartments were converted to fully accessible ADA units. Additionally, site improvements including sidewalks, parking lots, and a new playground were completed.

After catching up with colleagues and friends, Kevin and Mike remarked on the milestone. Kevin spoke about founding Roanoke with the intention to transform the face of the construction industry and create opportunities for businesses owned by women and people of color. Gesturing to himself and Mike, Kevin said, “Most of the industry looks like us—two old white guys.” Cue Mike behind him, “Who are you calling old?” to laughter from the audience. Kevin shrugged his shoulders and joked, “Only one of us has gray hair.” Turning back to the diverse group of guests in front of him, he said, “We want it to look a little more like this.” It was not lost on Kevin that most construction companies fail before reaching 10 years in business, and that Roanoke would not have achieved this milestone without the support of many friends and family members along the way. Kevin thanked his wife, Christie, for her support and...
