Willow Construction was selected for this senior care project at the Salisbury Wicomico Senior Center. The project was constructed in phases with the first phase encompassing the shell, tenant fit-outs for office space, the kitchen, and end-user requirements. This state-of-the-art facility utilizes a 104 well geothermal heating and cooling system in addition to energy smart systems throughout. Designed as a multi-function facility serving the surrounding community, several “tenant” areas were modified to meet the client’s needs while construction was in progress. Working with the engineering and architectural group, many of the changes were implemented in real time.
Project Challenges & Solutions
- The original schedule for this project was 365 with a $1,000 a day penalty. However, a compressed schedule was required due to prior weather delays. With time extensions for change orders and the addition, the completion dates were met with no penalty.
- Funding issues resulted in the acceptance of over $680,000 of VE suggestions.
