Mountain View Rehabilitation Phase 1The Mountain View Rehabilitation Center is a highly respected, skilled nursing facility that was in dire need of a comprehensive remodel to update the aging facility to current standards. Charter’s skilled project team worked closely with the owner and architect to develop a phased plan that would allow construction activities to take place while the facility remained occupied at near full capacity.
The project focused on remodeling the interior spaces of the facility. Mountain View consists of twenty-four patient rooms and bathrooms with additional support areas for dining, nursing staff, reception and activity areas and offices. Project scope included a complete interior demolition and remodel of the existing finishes, reframing of patient bathrooms to meet current ADA standards, new flooring, painting, handrails and bumper rails, new casework and countertops, mechanical and electrical upgrades, which included all new LED lights, and plumbing work.
Due to the sensitive nature of performing construction activities in a healthcare based facility, special precautions had to be taken. A detailed plan was required that provided details for complete patient and site protection. Specialized barriers were created to encapsulate work areas. Steps were taken to minimize the time needed to remodel each room.
The project team’s strict adherence to safety procedures and the high level of organization allowed them to continue working during the facilities annual DSHS survey. This is almost unheard-of in the industry, as work typically shuts down during survey. Once the remodel was complete, Mountain View experienced a noticeable and immediate turnaround in their profitability, largely due to the improvements and their ability to market the facility to local hospitals and other providers.
