Joe Still Building Company recently completed its third major area of renovation for Magnolia Trace – ACTS Retirement-Life Communities in Huntsville. By working closely as a team with owner and architects, JSBC modernized the facility’s Dining and Commons areas, lobby, Bistro, Reception, and Residents’ Lounge.
Extensive pre-planning and working in phases to expedite turnover ensured a quality outcome for all of the projects that came in both ahead of schedule and within budget.
Workers began by deconstructing down to original studs, concrete and metal decking. A priority was the maintenance of stringent dust control measures for the comfort and safety of Magnolia Trace residents. Another prerequisite was providing 24-hour accessibility in and around the work spaces.
Highlights of the finished spaces included a state of the art food service line, fire places, a coffee bar with mosaic tile, a hearing aid wireless sound loop system, installation of two flat screen televisions, a surround sound speaker system and microphone. Aesthetics were greatly improved by new luxury vinyl tile flooring, specialty carpeting, textured vinyl wallcoverings, antique glass, ornate fixtures, detailed custom trim and quartz and stone countertops throughout.
