Lutheran Social Services
The Lutheran Healthcare Center is a 101-bed skilled nursing facility in the heart of downtown Worcester. This project was performed as a phased renovation. In the summer of 2009, the boiler plant was replaced to ensure that an operational heating system would be on-line for the start of the heating season in September. The next phase included renovations within resident rooms, adjacent common areas, and program spaces to improve the aesthetics, comfort, and use of each area. Exterior envelope upgrades including the exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS) replacement and window replacement were installed, as well as improvements to the life safety systems and replacement of the existing nurse call system. All renovations were performed while the facility was occupied and fully operational.
