The Frasier Retirement Community’s $100 million Master Plan buildout consists of the construction of The Prairies, a 98-unit independent living building with a 110-space parking level on the lowest floor; a 6,000 sf Arts and Education building with classrooms, theater and a 300-seat multi-purpose room with stage; a 9,500 sf wellness center with a 25-meter exercise pool; and extensive renovations of the main floor of Frasier Central. All work is conducted on the occupied 530,000 sf, 14.5-acre complex.


To meet Frasier’s demand for high quality and an uncompromising sensitivity to the needs of 400-plus seniors, Pinkard conducted an exhaustive preconstruction phase that focused on intensive collaboration with architect Hord Coplan Macht, Frasier, and numerous Frasier user groups.


As a result of these efforts, the Pinkard/Frasier/Hord Coplan Macht collaboration produced “a perfect balance in site placement to achieve optimal aesthetics and natural views, respecting City of Boulder jurisdictional restrictions (including the 55-foot height limits), and FEMA flood-plain requirements, all the while allowing Frasier to enjoy tremendous flexibility for future growth. And we did this while balancing Frasier’s budgetary needs with the health, safety, and comfort of a demanding senior population.”


During construction, Pinkard managed an unusually complex permitting process, which included 12 separate building permits as opposed to the customary one or two permits.

"Retirement communities are sacred spaces. Pinkard and the subcontractors have been tremendously respectful of our sacred spaces."

Senior Living Client

"I've done maybe 50 projects in my career with 40 different contractors. Too many contractors are weak in preconstruction services. You guys are very, very strong in preconstruction services."

Senior Living Client

"When you don’t know what you’re doing (on your first construction project), you can feel very vulnerable. But it has been a great relationship, and everybody here has felt like they were heard."
