Shell Point Retirement Community contracted with Stevens Construction to provide construction management services for the renovation of King’s Crown, the community’s 120-unit, four-story, assisted living facility.

Stevens Construction remodeled King’s Crown’s existing recreation and common areas and expanded the ground floor to include additional recreational space and administrative offices. Construction of the 24,000-square-foot project was completed in multiple phases to allow the facility to remain operational during construction.

Numerous enhancements and innovative touches were added throughout this renovation that would provide residents a more modern and convenient living environment. For example, within the mailroom at the lobby, residents were now able to open their mailboxes with their apartment keys versus having to use a separate key. Pool tables, coffee bars and flat-screened televisions are now featured in the updated parlors.   The Grand Salon had been enhanced with a mantel and fireplace, which complemented the natural lighting from the expansive windows, providing a welcoming gathering spot for residents. During the construction of the Grand Salon and its balconies, a window was incorporated so residents could watch the project’s progression.

King’s Crown Assisted Living Facility was completely occupied with elderly residents during construction. Stevens Construction had to be very sensitive to the residents during this process and provide as little inconvenience in the resident’s routine as possible.

During construction, the owner had decided to make additional renovations while the construction team was already there. They asked Stevens Construction to renovate the dining room which required revising the schedule and budget accordingly. In addition, to prevent any adjustments in the dining schedule, the construction team had to work in the evenings and early mornings to minimize any inconveniences to the residents.

The addition of the project scope required an adjustment in the schedule, however even with the adjustments; the project was completed within the agreed upon schedule.
