Hickory Construction has a long history of building high-quality medical facilities throughout the region. Now we continue that tradition by breaking ground on a new project that will help better meet the health care needs of Blount County residents and those of surrounding communities.
Work is now underway on the expansion of Brookdale Sandy Springs Senior Living Facility (formerly Sterling House) in Maryville, as well as the addition of a new memory-care facility, Clare Bridge, which will go up at the same location.
“This project allows us to continue serving and providing our community with top-quality construction, as well as directly benefit the local economy,” says Hickory Vice President Ben Pinnell. The 14,848-square-foot expansion of Brookdale Sandy Springs will include 14 new bedrooms, an updated dining room and nurses’ call stations. Clare Bridge will be a 24,772-square-foot facility consisting of 32 units, a courtyard, dining room and administrative offices.
The cost of the project is $5 million, and construction is expected to take approximately 12 months.
Hickory is working with PDC Midwest, Inc., which is heading up the project for Alterra Healthcare Corporation. Both companies are based out of Milwaukee but chose to work with a local contractor.
“We’re pleased that PDC and Alterra decided to work with Hickory Construction and trust us with this project,” Pinnell adds.”I think our background in medical construction certainly contributed to their decision.”
Brookdale Sandy Springs is located at 511 Pearson Springs Road in Maryville.
