The demographics of aging are somewhat astounding. Many predict that by 2030, the segment of our populace which is 65 or older will make up 19% of our country’s population. With this remarkable growth comes an increasing demand for related health care services, including senior living facilities. This has resulted in intensified design and construction of new living facilities for the aging. There has also been a surge in maintenance and upgrades to the numerous existing facilities within our region, making them more appealing to prospective residents and their families.
Within the Baltimore region, Waverly Construction has been honored to work in a number of senior living facilities as they strive to maintain environments that are not only wonderful places to live, but in which the residents can maintain their dignity and feel secure.
Having completed a number of projects in The Shelter Group’s Brightview independent living, assisted living and dementia care communities, we know what it takes to help enhance these facilities. Working in occupied spaces presents a specific set of challenges in itself. Working in an environment that is home to the aging, sick and disabled takes special care, attention and coordination. It is not just a construction process, it becomes a relationship with the people that work and live in these communities.
Our most recent projects for Brightview encompassed upgrades and renovations to common and administrative areas of their Mays Chapel, Bel Air and White Marsh complexes. These upgrades not only created a more pleasing look and feel, but increased efficiency and functionality for the facilities day-to-day operations.
We are excited to expand our senior living client list with the recent contract award for renovations to Ginger Cove-Annapolis’ Physical Therapy Suite. Alterations will include demolition, new millwork, drywall, acoustical ceilings, new flooring, painting, and MEP modifications.
