Arbor Acres Transformation Complete
January 1, 2017
Renovations and additions to Strickland Place at Fitzgerald Health Center in the Arbor Acres Retirement Community have updated the building that Blum constructed more than 30 years ago into a beautiful, enticing environment. The work was highly phased to minimize disruptions to residents and their families. The 94,000-square-foot project, designed by Winston-Salem-based Lambert Architecture + Interiors, included reconfiguring all the common areas to create more open spaces. Significant improvements to the public areas of the building make it more accommodating to residents and their families, and provide increased opportunities for interacting socially in an environment that engages all the senses. In addition to the many cosmetic changes, the renovation included upgrading the building's HVAC, plumbing, electrical, and fire suppression systems, as well as revitalization of the exterior.
