Designing Your New or Retrofitted Home
Why spend your time, energy and money starting from scratch? Extendicare staff can advise you on the best course of action. We have also established excellent working relationships with architects, interior designers and contractors in many communities, saving you time and money. We will put our experience to work to ensure you get the home you’ve envisioned. We do this by:
Assisting you in selecting and hiring an architect.
Extendicare’s linkages and strong rapport with several architects can help you find the best fit for your home.
Developing and monitoring the project
budget and schedule.
It takes a lot of time and energy to ensure the design process is on track – let us do the work. Extendicare will manage the team of architects, engineers and interior designers to maintain the project schedule and meet your goals and budget.
Act as your representative at all coordination
meetings between consultants.
Miscommunication between the various consultants in the design process can take you off schedule and off budget. Our team can ensure the consultants (and your project) stay on track.
Overseeing the design process.
With 18 new long-term care buildings developed in the past 10 years, Extendicare can manage design projects of any size. Our team can oversee the development of working drawings and provide input for building materials, systems and methods of construction.
Our environmental and interior design specialists can turn your building into a beautiful home to live and work. The furnishings, colours and fabrics selected for your home will reflect the characteristic of your original home, the community and its people, while employing a modern and comfortable style.
The decision to build new or to retrofit is not simple: Extendicare can guide you to make a sensible decision that works for you. Whether you are starting from scratch or retrofitting, we have the knowledge and expertise to support you throughout the entire design process.
