Dorchester Lower Mills, MA and Marion, MA

South Coast Improvement Company, a design-build general contractor serving New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, recently finished a renovation project at the Standish Village, a Senior Living Residences facility located at 1190 Adams Street in Dorchester Lower Mills.

The project featured the complete renovation of common areas on first floor as well as a new entrance to the Memory Care wing ad a new concrete pad leading into the building. Public rest rooms on the first floor were relocated to accommodate a larger private dining room and a new reception desk was installed. 

Additional work included new and custom millwork, paint, flooring and new lighting. This included custom millwork in the activity room and a new sitting area in the memory care unit.

The $570,000 project began in December 2016 and concluded at the end of May 2017.

“We take all renovations in occupied space seriously, but even more so when we work in a Memory Care Unit. Residents there have some challenges and a renovation project has the potential to cause some distress if not handled properly,” said Tom Quinlan, president of South Coast Improvement Company. “We coordinated very closely and frequently with staff to ensure as little disruption as possible. Both from that standpoint and the quality of work, I would deem this a successful project.”

In affiliation with the Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Center (BUADC), SLR remains at the forefront of evidence based care for seniors, especially those living with cognitive impairments including Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. For more information about Senior Living Residences, including a listing of other locations, visit www.seniorlivingresidences.com.
