There are a number of challenges when it comes to the renovation of an entire wing within a fully occupied seniors housing community.
How does one completely renovate a space while minimizing the disruption to daily living of both the facility’s staff and a mix of elderly and infirm people? Rarely is the work itself to be considered a typical renovation.
Demolition, framing, plumbing, electrical, finishes, and so on all have to be completed in the midst of a functioning facility. One analogy that has been used to describe construction in an occupied senior environment is that it is “like trying to paint the lines on the highway while the road is open.”
