RENOVATION & TRANSITION PLANNING FOR SKILLED NURSING FACILITY

We are currently managing the renovations of a 7-floor assisted living and skilled nursing facility in Oakland, California, with a planned completion of October of 2021. This project involves a wealth of site improvements, which will benefit both staff and residents. In addition, The Stahl Companies is providing transition planning services for MRCC. To prepare for this transition, we have compiled a complete inventory of all equipment and furnishings.

 

RENOVATION PROJECT MANAGEMENT & TRANSITION PLANNING

The Stahl Companies is currently managing a project involving renovations and modifications of the Mercy Retirement & Care Center, which is comprised of a 7-floor assisted living and memory care tower and a skilled nursing facility. The project also includes site improvements and the build-out of new parking garage.

Construction consists of new secured fencing around the perimeter of the property, a two-level parking structure for visitors and staff, and new amenity spaces including a community room, theatre, fitness center, bistro, art studio, library, and spa/salon.

Common areas will also receive new mechanical systems. All assisted living tower residences will be remodeled to include new walk-in showers, as well as new carpet, paint, and a high security, keyless fob door entry. Site work includes a porte cochere drop-off area, new courtyard plaza, and pedestrian walking fitness path.

The Stahl Companies is providing transition planning services to MRCC to ensure smooth transitions between project phases. We developed a detailed Transition Schedule including all tasks required to prepare staff and residents for each step of the process. A complete inventory and asset tagging of all existing equipment and furnishings was completed, and a plan developed for reuse or disposal of all items, by phase.

We worked with the facility administration to develop a move plan and communication protocols, which include individual meetings with residents and their families prior to moves to ensure that all needs are met and concerns about the process are addressed. Working individually with each resident, floor plans with furniture placement will be generated to eliminate potential confusion. Each move will be efficiently scheduled and managed to minimize the effect of project activities on residents. This detailed planning will ensure smooth and efficient moves, with minimal disruption to residents and staff.
