Pavilion and Dining Room
Durham, North Carolina
Project Owner: Croasdaile Village Retirement Community
Designer: SFCS Architects
Located on a former dairy farm, the Croasdaile Village retirement community includes homes and apartments for seniors ranging from independent living through skilled nursing. With a philosophy of enabling residents to live life as independently as possible, the facility known as the Pavilion offers a non-traditional model for skilled nursing patients and Alzheimer’s care. Instead of long corridors of rooms served by a single nursing station, the Pavilion’s 114 certified Medicare beds are located within four “neighborhoods,” each with a shared living-room style area and a designated team of nursing staff.
Blum Construction was awarded the complex project of renovating the dining room serving all of the households – with as little disruption as possible to the ongoing meal service for residents. Blum worked closely with Croasdaile and architects during the preconstruction planning process to develop a carefully scheduled phasing of the renovation. The remodeled dining room is now a light and airy space that is very inviting to residents and their visitors.
