WHEAT RIDGE, Colorado — Pinkard Construction Company, owner American Baptist Homes of the Midwest, and William Brummett Architects have completed the two-phased addition and renovation to Mountain Vista Retirement Community. The 23,500 square foot Mountain Vista project included the conversion of a 9,000 sf memory care wing to market rate therapy care, and a 14,500 sf, 22-unit memory care addition.

The five-month long, phase-one renovation overhauled an entire wing of skilled nursing to create 14 rehabilitation suites specifically designed for short term care. Project scope included the addition of private showers to all suites, expanded daylighting, new dining and common areas, a new therapy gym, two new bathing spas, and hair salon with new finishes and furnishings.

Phase two construction ties-in a single-story, wood-framed and brick veneer secure memory care wing to the existing, two-story assisted living (AL) building. The memory care wing includes a delayed egress system, nurses station, large living/dining area, activities room, bathing spa, library, new lobby, and a new courtyard converted from a surface parking lot.

In the existing two-story AL building, a second floor deck was converted into a fully enclosed dining facility.

Amenities for the entire Mountain Vista project focus on home-like furnishings designed to meet the needs and expectations of residents.

A major site package included new infrastructure and stormwater detention pond within a fully occupied community.

The public is invited to the Grand Opening of the Secured Memory Care Assisted Living,  July 9th from 3:30 - 5:30 pm at 4800 Tabor Street in Wheat Ridge. For questions, call 303-421-4161.
