Cherrywood Village - Tufte Manor Link
Valley Memorial Homes
Grand Forks, North Dakota
Contract to Date - Over $ 8 Million

The Tufte Manor Link project consists of an approximately 26,500 GSF, 2 story, wood framed building with a single story connecting link to Tufte Manor. We were able to assist in the cost analyzing and design during the feasibility phase which helped maintain the construction budget. This project is currently ongoing.

Other projects for the owner consist of a 25,000 SF, 32 room addition and extensive remodeling of an existing facility complete with nurses stations, resident rooms, dining facilities, kitchen facilities, conference rooms, family areas, coffee shop, recreational areas, housekeeping areas, medication rooms, classrooms, new front entrance and bathrooms. All aspects of these project conformed to the engineers specifications and fulfilled the requirements of the special needs residents. Upon starting these projects we knew how important it was to keep the facility up and running as many of the patients were in need of daily treatments. With a project team consisting of the owner, architects, contractor and local subcontractors we were able to accomplish that through phasing of the project and communications with all members of the project team. The projects went very well with minimal interruption of the facilities normal day to day activities.

Additional projects have included a courtyard remodel, monument signage, lounge remodels as well as other miscellaneous projects.
