South Coast Improvement Company, based in Marion, MA, one of the largest providers of construction and renovation services to senior living and healthcare facilities in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states, recently completed construction of the Life Guidance® Memory Care Neighborhood at Atria Bay Spring Village in West Barrington, RI.
South Coast Improvement completed the conversion of Atria Bay Spring’s traditional assisted living space into a memory care apartments in 24 months.
The newly created Life Guidance® Memory Care Neighborhood’s grand opening was held on May 17th.
South Coast Improvement’s President, Tom Quinlan explained the project, “Atria came to us with an idea to create more memory care units to meet increasing demand within their assisted living facility. We took the concept and worked with Atria providing pre-construction services including preliminary design and budgets. The project was innovative in its use of existing space. The challenge was to meet the regulations for a memory care unit in terms of space and usage while maintaining a construction budget that made the project feasible.”
South Coast Improvement was granted approval in late 2011 and was the General Contractor on the project. South Coast Improvement has worked with Atria on dozens of projects throughout the Northeast, however this project had its unique challenges.
“All of these types of projects have their challenges as renovations in occupied spaces with special needs residents are extremely complicated,” Henry Quinlan, Executive VP at South Coast Improvement noted. “We had a particularly tight time line for completion on this project. We had to manage the process very efficiently and we succeeded in meeting the expectations of all parties.”
