The Esperanza Senior Living Facility in College Station passes DADS Licensure
the first time and opens ahead of schedule
(May 24, 2010 - Austin, Texas) Jamail & Smith Construction recently completed a 15,000 SF addition to The Esperanza Assisted Living Facility in College Station, Texas. This project, valued at $2.1 MM, was completed in conjunction with Relative Architecture, who designed the 27 rooms that were added to the facility. Throughout the project, Jamail & Smith Construction’s team was faced with various challenges arising from working within an operating assisted living facility. These challenges were overcome efficiently with close coordination of the owners and staff as well as early site evaluation meetings with the local Fire Department to ensure that sufficient evacuation plans were in place. Although the project experienced several weather delays, Jamail & Smith Construction successfully completed the project 74 days ahead of schedule. "We collaborated on value engineering ideas, reduced the budget, and streamlined the decision process to accelerate the construction schedule," said Darrell Smith, Vice President of Healthcare Construction for Jamail & Smith Construction.
