1/2019 Consolidated Construction Building 3rd ‘Legacy’ Assisted Living and Memory Care Facility
(January 8, 2019) Appleton, Wis. – Consolidated Construction Co. Inc., a full-service design/build firm headquartered in Appleton, Wisconsin, has begun construction of ‘The Legacy of DeForest,’ assisted living and memory care facility in DeForest, Wis.
The 48,000 sq. ft. facility will feature 32 Residential Care Apartment Complex (RCAC) units and 22 Community Based Residential Facility (CBRF) units. The project is owned by Greywolf Partners, Inc., with headquarters in Milwaukee and executive offices in Sun Prairie, and operated by Park Vista Senior Living of Clinton, Iowa.
“We are honored to have been chosen by Park Vista/Greywolf Partners for this important project,” noted Consolidated Construction Strategic Account Manager, Tim Rinn. “This is the 3rd Legacy assisted living construction project we’ve performed, and we’re pleased to help deliver such important services to the communities they serve.”
According to Julie Lonergan, President of Park Vista Senior Project Management, “Not only did our research show this area needs assisted living and memory care services, but in our discussions with the Village we also heard about the importance of this project to the community, so we are thrilled to be moving forward.”
With the facility scheduled to open in summer, 2019, it was necessary to design a tight construction schedule, beginning in the coldest winter months, with construction kicking off on Dec. 17, 2018. It also required the use of state-of-the-art construction materials to facilitate an accelerated construction timeline. Pre-engineered and manufactured component walls and trusses are being utilized to erect the building in a more streamlined and efficient manner. Also, the exterior of the building will be comprised of an R6.6 ZIP board system that eliminates the need to install exterior foam and vapor barriers separately, which are often subject to damage in cold weather.
Grunwaldt & Halverson, LLC of Plover, Wis. is the architect of record.
