Skender, serving as base building and interior construction manager, has completed construction at North Shore Place, a two-story, 37,500-square-foot assisted living facility located at 1000 Sunset Ridge Road in Northbrook, Illinois. Owned and operated by Senior Lifestyle, the assisted living facility offers 40 memory care units.
Completing the project in 11 months, Skender worked in collaboration with design firm SAS Architects & Planners, civil engineering firm Manhard Consulting and structural engineering firm Bowman, Barrett & Associates. All work was performed adjacent to a fully operational, twenty-four seven facility and required shut down of the main access drive for building deliveries and egress.
Special infrastructure allowed for the installation of a video memory screen adjacent to every tenant’s entryway door that cycles through digitized photographs of family and friends to assist tenants with room identification. The building is designed around a central courtyard with a water feature and putt-putt course.
This marks the second new construction project Skender has completed for Senior Lifestyle on this property; the first being a 175,000-square foot, five-story, 157-unit assisted living facility located adjacent to current construction. Skender is set to begin a four-month conversion of the former memory care wing into 32 assisted living units.
