Slideshow: Remaining safe with renovation all around

  • Regular communication between construction personnel and the facility’s key leaders is vital to coordinating schedules, avoiding disruptions in residents’ and staff members’ daily activities, and ensuring a safe renovation project.

  • Directing renovations without disturbing residents’ daily activities — while keeping them safe — demands precision and teamwork. This is especially critical when work needs to occur next to often-used common areas.
