On Sunday, Sept. 9, the residents and staff of Green Hills Retirement Community in Ames, Iowa, celebrated the completion of their recent Health & Wellness Project by hosting a public open house and campus tours from 2-4 p.m. Along with city officials, community leaders, friends, family and neighbors, members of Story Construction attended the event to congratulate the Green Hills community on another successful construction project and support its vision to continuously improve its campus and amenities for current and prospective residents.
The Green Hills Health & Wellness Project was an extensive renovation and expansion project to increase the continuum of care at Green Hills. The project added 16 assisted living apartments, renovated the skilled nursing facility to add a new neighborhood and create more private rooms, designated space for a memory care neighborhood and built a new wellness center with a warm-water therapy pool.
Story Construction was honored to serve as the design-builder and work closely with the project leaders to create an attractive, fluid campus that meets the 21st-century needs of its residents. A white paper detailing the process and explaining the benefits of the design-build construction delivery system is available here.
