Designer: Story Design, Ltd.
Project Size: 3,965 square feet
Total Project Cost: $781,000
Since serving as the general contractor on the construction of Green Hills’ original senior living community in 1987, Story Construction has continued to partner with the community on expansions and remodels, helping to answer the increasing need for senior living in Ames. For this project, Story served as the design-builder for a 3,965 sq. ft. remodel and addition to the Green Hills Memory Care Unit. Working amongst current residents, the Story crew added five rooms (for a total of 11). The work also included a dining and activities area, nurses’ desk, serving kitchen and storage. The project began in November 2013 and was completed in April 2014.
“We truly value our partnership with Story,” said Rod Copple, Executive Director of Green Hills. “Over the past 27 years, the Story team has worked to meet the budget and timeline of each project in which they’ve been involved. Beyond that, they have served as an adviser on the best approach to each project and helped us reach our ongoing goal of providing the best senior living care possible.”
