New Assisted Living & Memory Care Apartments
Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin
Dickson Hollow assisted living and memory care is a new construction build of approximately 297,675 square feet and multiple structures, all with underground parking. The project is on approximately 24 acres, seven of which is wetland.
The main living complex consisted of four stories and 180 apartments, while the three-story building held 58 units of assisted living and memory care apartments. The two-story Town Center consists of a three-story, 46-unit assisted living and memory care facility, a two-story, 2,710 square foot chapel/auditorium, and a one-story, 2,830 square foot space for Brookfield Presbyterian Church.
Dickson Hollow is a new client for VJS, as well as new to the Wisconsin area. VJS shepherded this client through how we build locally and served as the eyes and ears for them because of their distant location. VJS worked with this client on phasing the project so that the building could be turned over in two phases; allowing the client to begin moving residents in before the entire project was complete. This project also started in the midst of a market experiencing labor shortages. VJS put a highly skilled team on the project that worked with the subcontractors to ensure that we would not have any labor shortages during this project's duration.
In order to work with Senior Housing Partners (SHP) budget constraints, VJS managed contractors that Senior Housing held due to VJS signatory requirements. A savings of roughly $1,600,000 was realized by working with Senior Housing to manage their contractors on-sight.
