Project Details

This 100,979 SF, 120-Bed Skilled Nursing Facility was organized into six neighborhoods of 20 private bedroom/baths per neighborhood, served by a Community Center with Chapel, Multi-purpose Room, Therapy, Administrative, Laundry and Foodservice amenities and support spaces. Due to a pending deadline for licensure and occupancy of skilled beds, this was a fast-track design and construction delivery method, resulting in four separate design packages (site-foundation; building shell; building interiors; mechanical-electrical-plumbing), which were distributed sequentially over a four-month bidding and permitting period. The timeline was further challenged with the onset of winter weather conditions. The total time from beginning of design to occupancy was 18 months.


Schemmer worked very hard and listened to the requests of my organization. They made the design process stress-free. They were able to make the tight timeframes that they were given. I would recommend them to anyone in need of architectural and/or engineering services.
