South Coast Improvement Announces Completion of Construction in Somerset, NJ

Jul 29, 2012 | News

South Coast Improvement, a design, construction and management companies in the Northeast, completed construction and renovation on Willow Creek Rehabilitation and Care Center, a 180 bed skilled nursing center located in Somerset, NJ. South Coast Improvement completed the project twice – before and after Hurricane Irene.

In early 2011, South Coast Improvement was contracted to provide a full renovation to Willow Creek Rehabilitation and Care Center. They successfully completed the job on time and within budget. The project scope included: the creation of a STAR (Specialized Therapy and Rehabilitation) Wing within the facility; the addition of a dedicated entrance to the STAR Wing with porte-cochere; the creation of an enlarged OT/PT Gym;  new construction of a 600 square foot Spa/Hydrotherapy room; construction of a new STAR Dining Room with custom millwork, solid surfaces and a Presentation Cooking Space; construction of new Staff Lounge/Locker Rooms; full renovation of all common areas and administrative offices; full upgrade of 168 rooms; construction of two custom nurses stations and new patient rooms from underutilized floor space; construction of a new cyber café and numerous building envelope improvements.

In the summer of 2011, Hurricane Irene devastated Willow Creek Rehabilitation and Care Center’s entire facility, leaving it submerged in three feet of water. South Coast Improvement renovated the entire facility again, installing new walls, finishes, flooring, fixtures, millwork and HVAC. South Coast Improvement designed a functioning temporary egress plan and worked with town officials to secure permission to open 30 percent of the facility (the Traumatic Brain Injury Unit) in 30 days while the remainder of the facility was being renovated. The company mobilized crews to work seven days a week with multiple shifts to ensure the project’s successful completion within 110 days.

Once construction was concluded, Willow Creek Rehabilitation’s owner hosted a grand Appreciation Lunch for South Coast Improvement and all the subcontractors for facilitating the center’s reopening in a timely manner.
