Adolfson & Peterson Construction was recently selected as the construction manager for the James L. West Alzheimer Clinic renovation project in Fort Worth, Texas.
James L. West Alzheimer Clinic is a four-story, 92,000-square-foot healthcare facility serving the needs of patients suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia. The facility is located near the intersection of Summit and Lancaster avenues in Ft. Worth.
A “wall-breaking ceremony” was recently held at the clinic to commemorate the project start. The mayor of Fort Worth, Betsy Price, members of the board of directors, as well as Executive Director Susan Farris of James L. West, capped the ceremony by using sledgehammers to ceremoniously demo an old nurses’ station counter.
“We are all transitioning from the idea that healthcare is centered on treating sickness to the idea of creating wellness,” said Farris. “This project is about wellness and bringing a full and rich environment to our residents in all stages of care.”
This project will renovate 2 ½ floors of resident living, including 56,000 square feet of renovation, and will be performed in five phases. The project scope includes MEP replacement, upgrade to all finishes, new casework, new food service equipment and exterior building upgrades.
Construction is to begin in January 2015 with completion in 15 months.
