While the pandemic may have slowed some things down around town, it has not stopped the construction for the two new Memory Care Households, Community Life Center or Maintenance Shop at OMM. These three major new construction projects are in full swing.
Phase II of the Generation to Generation Campaign construction consists of two new 12-bed Memory Care Households, a Community Life Center that includes a great hall attached to the new Holliman Center, and a new Maintenance Shop. The construction projects are happening simultaneously. The building pads for the Memory Care Households and Community Life Center are complete and the foundation work is well
“I am very pleased with how the construction is going,” said Dennis Graham, VP of Operations. “We are hoping to have the slab poured and in place on or before the middle of June. Once the slab is completed the framing will begin immediately and should be complete by late August.”
The Memory Care Households, which will be called the Barnes House and Marshall-Gaddy House, have foundations and the mechanical and plumbing rough-in process has started. The mechanical rough-in process will take about two weeks to complete. The slab process will begin immediately following the rough-in completion.
“We just received the building permit for the new Maintenance Shop and are excited to start that project,” said Jesse Stark, OMM Project Coordinator. “The new Maintenance Shop will be located on the northwest corner of the campus and requires the demo of three houses. The new building is a pre-engineered metal building and is scheduled to arrive in late June.”
The Community Life Center Great Hall foundation is completed. The below grade walls for the Great Hall will be completed by the end of May along with the remainder of the foundation work for the entire building. The mechanical rough-in process for this building will be completed by the middle of June.
