BUILDING FOR SENIOR CITIZENS
Senior living facilities require a breadth of construction expertise — because they often need to integrate living, dining, recreation, transportation and entertainment spaces with assisted living and medical / nursing care. They rely heavily on interior design and finishes to make their residents feel comfortable and at home while unobtrusively accommodating different levels of mobility and independence. We enjoy the parallel rewards of meeting those challenges while helping to provide for our senior citizens’ quality of life.
Evidence Based Design is a vital component of these builds. We’ll offer incisive input on how to achieve your team’s objectives for EBD and continuum of care within your budget and scope.
PAST & FUTURE
Most senior living construction consist of renovating the properties you already have. We’re good at this. We can help you make your residence more efficient, functional and beautiful — with an eye toward phased future upgrades too.
We have a lot of experience building for seniors. But the most important thing we bring to these projects is: respect. We’re building for some pretty special people. We go above and beyond to make sure their home provides the safety, dignity and comfort they deserve.
WHY WE BUILD
The Rockwood Summit Tower is a senior residence on Spokane’s south hill. It’s the culmination of years of collaboration, teamwork, leadership and construction excellence. But what really makes this project extraordinary is — who we built it for.
In this video, you’ll meet some extraordinary people. They might change your life a little. They’ve certainly made an impact on us.
It was an honor to build for them.
“THESE ARE PEOPLE’S HOMES”
A BUILDER’S PERSPECTIVE ON ON SENIOR LIVING
“One of the most significant projects taken on in the region in recent years is the senior living tower for Rockwood Retirement Communities.
Despite the challenges of working on a site that was predominantly basalt rock, with an active natural spring, adjacent to a fully occupied existing retirement facility, as well as a wetland area, this project was a spectacular success for all involved.
An enormous amount of coordination is required in any project involving a senior living center. Uninterrupted access to health and food services is critical. Sensitivity to the resident’s needs and routines needs to be at the forefront of discussion. In the end, you have to instill in every worker’s mind that they are working in people’s homes — people’s grandparent’s homes.”
Work with a respect and a purpose that you would want from people working in your own home.
