Walsh Construction completes renovation phase within the Oak Trace Senior Living Community Expansion Project
DOWNERS GROVE, IL – Walsh Construction joined Lifespace Communities, Greenbrier Development and SAS Architects & Planners to unveil the newly constructed spaces within the Oak Trace Senior Living Community's independent living building. The renovations are part of an overall $88 million expansion of the senior living community.
Designed by SAS Architects & Planners, Interior Design Associates, Scopos Hospitality Group and Steen Engineering, and built by Walsh Construction, the renovations modify and update multiple shared spaces, including a formal restaurant-style dining room, multi-purpose room, newly furnished library, art studio and a new bright and welcoming bar lounge.
The 13 month renovation project was completed in phases to allow residents continued use of spaces within the independent living building during construction.
