Phase I – A 20,000 sf gut and renovation of the 2nd floor of a 4-story independent living wing to convert it to 32-units of assisted living. Work includes a new structural steel and masonry exterior elevator; demolition and reconstruction of the loading dock; two new patios; low voltage systems for nurse-call, patient wandering and fire systems; and standard institutional finishes. The renovation also includes complete new MEP systems, including new electrical service, and through-wall PTAC units. The existing MEP systems run throughout the entire occupied 4-story structure, requiring careful coordination with building management and residents to prevent disruptions to the facility.
Phase II – A 3,600 sf renovation of an assisted living area to create a skilled nursing area to temporarily house the residents displaced during Phase III. Work includes a major utility relocation to bypass main distributions affected by Phase III; new lounge and dining areas, a beauty salon; and construction of a new connector walkway.
Phase III – The new 18,000 sf Town Center structural steel and masonry addition provides a new entry, new dining facilities, meeting areas, a gift shop, offices, a medical suite, and a 165-piece, full commercial kitchen expansion that doubles its square footage. Other work includes MEP tie-ins to the existing facility, extensive glazing, a new circular drive area and sitework, plus all utilities and building systems for Phase IV.
A new 42,000 sf, 2-story, 64-unit, skilled nursing building with new basement with laundry; community kitchens, dining rooms, new porte-cochere entry; heat pumps and all tie-ins.
A major construction challenge was the conversion to a single electrical service for the entire east campus. This work involved demolition of the mechanical plant and utility service entries and an intricate plan for minimizing disruptions to the facility.
Phase IV – A 103,000 sf, new 4-story independent living building was constructed following demolition of the existing 2-story structure. Construction included community kitchens and dining areas, chapel, courtyard upgrades and all tie-ins to the existing structure. Each of the 71 units has individual heat pumps. This phase also included extensive stormwater quality features, including porous landscape detention and construction of a 76,800 cubic foot underground stormwater detention vault, which is located below the main access road into the property.
