Why Good Healthcare Construction Starts Before the Hammer and Nails

We’ve invested in health and well-being for our clients. Part of our now-normal process is creating a dust-free work environment via the use of air scrubbers and Zip Walls. We also support quiet by using battery powered tools to keep nail guns and other noisy instruments reasonable. People temporarily living and working around our process deserve respect.

 The graying of America is taking this respect for renovation to new, weighty proportions.

It’s plain to see health-care building needs to accommodate assisted living facilities with efficiency and grace.

More than half of people turning 65 will need long-term care services in their lifetimes. Given that gargantuan number it’s plain to see health-care building needs to accommodate assisted living facilities with efficiency and grace. That’s why our process begins well before we show up to improve both construction and esthetics. Here’s just a little insight into what you can expect if your building has change on the horizon.

Until those valuable changes take effect the process can be cumbersome. That’s why this health-care builder takes some strong steps to make the procedure less problematic and keep the quality of life as high as possible while work is going on.

Being a leader in the industry starts with preparation. Planning ahead allows us to be a positive force in the area of Long-Term Support and Services. You’ll know what’s going to happen before it does.

Minimal disruption can include a choice between working near residents or construction at night. That conversation happens before we consider closing down an area that brings comfort to residents. Then we plan out signage for the worksite and surrounding areas that keep people informed about safety and detours.

Keeping the space in and around renovation sites clean is another task we spend valuable time on. Regular meetings keep the construction team and our clients in-the-know. Laying out methods to keep the floor in good shape during the process prevents surface dangers from popping up during and after construction.

Our core values include healthy construction with professionalism for everyone. That most certainly includes the 52% of Americans heading for assisted living facilities.

In our recent February blog “Healthcare Remodeling. Lessons in Respect” we came out as advocates for seniors. As the song says: “There’s no place like home” and keeping that home in great shape for older Americans drives us to be the finest health-care contractors in Virginia.
