Dock Terrace Updates

Monday, October 31, 2022

This week we’ll really start to see some changes.

The concrete vendor is spreading and tamping the stone over the dirt and perimeter insulation. The vendor needs to compact the stone, install the expansion joints, prep the bathrooms, install the wood forms for the bathrooms, and lay the wire mesh reinforcement yet before they pour any concrete. The concrete pours are scheduled to take place Thursday, Friday, and Monday, weather depending.

Thank you to Dock Woods resident, Perry Townsend, for his drone photographs. They really let us see exactly what is happening on the site.

I spy with my little eye…..

Storm water drainage is being installed around the perimeter of the new building and courtyard areas. More excitingly, the crews are framing the bump-out for the sample rooms. Before we begin work on any of the other resident rooms, we are building one private room and one semi-private room so we can be sure the floor plans function as well in real life as they do on paper.

Something is Missing at Dock Woods

If you have been to the Dock Woods campus recently, you may have noticed that something big appears to be missing. That missing building was the common areas in Country Cottage, which has been removed to prepare for the expanded living space in the new building.

The pictures below detail our progress so far. You can see that the fish pond visible from Willow View hallway has been drained (Don’t worry! The fish and frogs have found new homes), the bocce court has been protected so games can continue during construction, the foundation has been removed from the old building, and new foundation has been poured.

You can also see work inside the existing building. The crew is building two resident rooms in the remaining hallway area, one private and one semi-private, so we can make sure the floor plans work as well in the real world as they do on paper.

Construction Begins in Dock Terrace!

Dock Woods residents and staff gathered in the Chapel on Monday, June 13, to celebrate the beginning of construction in Dock Terrace. It was an afternoon of fellowship, complete with construction updates from Living Branches President/CEO, Edward Brubaker, introductions to members of the Benchmark construction team, and a litany read by several Dock Woods staff persons. We honored Dock Terrace throughout the years with a special video presentation, and celebrated all that’s to come with construction-themed cookies!

At this point in construction, Dock Terrace and Country Cottage rooms have been emptied out. A special thanks to our staff who has worked diligently over the past several months to make accommodations for our Dock Woods residents in Health Care during this time. You might also notice that trees have been cut down in our parking lots.
