Provo’s Jamestown Assisted Living Undergoes Addition and Remodel Work
Courtyard at Jamestown Assisted Living, a top tier retirement community in Provo, Utah, had outgrown its existing space. They brought on Curtis Miner Architecture to design a new addition and remodel several key areas within the existing building to provide updated amenity spaces for the residents.
Nathan Brown, Jr. Project Manager at CMA, says that this project is making good progress with the design’s permitting and review, which was recently completed by Provo City officials, and construction teams beginning the initial phases of their work. Construction is scheduled to be completed by July 2021.
Nathan is looking forward to how the collaborative vision of the client, design, and construction team will pay off. “Remodel and addition work is often challenging because of the task of mixing the existing with the new,” Nathan mentions, “Existing constraints make for a unique set of circumstances to work around.” Working through the challenge, the design team envisioned the space as one that would emphasize the serenity and peace of the assisted living facility. “One defining characteristic of the Courtyard at Jamestown Assisted Living is the charming atmosphere both inside and out,” he says. “For example, special care was put into maintaining a pond in the exterior courtyard that adds a special touch to the experience as well as a relaxing space for residents to enjoy.”
The updated facility will include nearly 35,000 square feet of new space more than 7,000 square feet of remodeled space. The three-story addition will provide 30 more resident units with both one- and two-bedroom options.
