Dale Corporation performed Construction Management Services for the design and construction of the Nellie Reynolds Gardens project, an affordable housing community designed specifically for senior residents. The scope included a new three-story senior housing 80,000 sq ft facility with 55 one-bedroom and 9 two-bedroom modern apartment units for seniors, management offices, life center, and a 20,000 square foot green roof. A central glass atrium near the main lobby functions as a community room with a warmup kitchen – the atrium also offers a sunny common space with an indoor landscaped area for seniors to enjoy year-round green space in an otherwise densely developed community. The building also houses recreational and laundry facilities, and a full-service Adult Day Center that serves the greater community. A green roof system was included in the program for Nellie Reynold – the first of its kind for PH – helping to regulate the building temperature, absorb rainwater, conserve water and energy resources, and improve indoor air quality for the facility’s residents.
