Graycor Construction

Project Scope

Montgomery Place, a nonprofit continuing-care provider, chose Graycor Construction to build a two-story addition of approximately 4,500 square feet to their existing senior living facility located in Chicago′s historic Hyde Park neighborhood. The addition houses a wellness center with a therapeutic swimming pool and spa, a rehabilitation unit and a green-roof garden to be viewed from the facility′s third-floor great room. The community project also includes a first-floor conservatory for pre-dining waiting, along with a new space for handicap equipment and motorized-cart storage. Administrative office space on the first floor was converted to a café/library that is adjacent to the renovated entrance lobby. Other areas within the existing footprint of the underground parking garage were also renovated to accommodate a multipurpose educational center for resident programs and guest lecturers, as well as pastoral care offices. Graycor converted the third floor from skilled nursing beds to an assisted living pavilion and performed a complete renovation of the second floor to create a 40-bed skilled nursing facility, which houses 26 long-term-care nursing beds and 14 Medicare-certified rehabilitation nursing beds.
