South Coast Improvement, Co. completes work at Atria Darien

June 23, 2017


South Coast Improvement Company (SCI), a design-build general contractor serving New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, recently completed renovations at the Atria Darien senior living facility located at 50 Ledge Road, Darien, Connecticut.

The project, which began earlier this year, featured two new additions, adding a total of four new resident rooms. The project also included renovation of common areas and the reworking of the heating/cooling systems in all residents rooms.

“The work we on the heating and cooling required us to be in the resident’s room for about three days per room. That kind of work takes close coordination with staff and the extreme patience of the residents. We had both at Atria-Darien and that’s the key reason why this project had a successful result,” said Tom Quinlan, president of South Coast Improvement Company.

Added Quinlan, ”What made the cooperation and patience more impressive was that we had just finished another project at Atria-Darien before this. So, these residents and staff members have had construction going on for the better part of the last year and were still very cooperative.”

The project began in January and was completed in June. The total cost of the renovation was $5 million.

Atria-Darien is one of 190 communities owned and operated by Atria Senior Living. Those communities are spread out over 28 states and seven Canadian provinces. For more information, visit
