Community Center Renovation

Benchmark was engaged by Living Branches to provide interior renovations to their Dock Woods community. The project was a multi-phased and focused on renovating approximately 79,000 SF of the facility’s common areas including the community center/bistro, outdoor patio, restaurant, chapel, corridors, lobby, and administrative offices. This campus supports independent living, personal care and affordable housing for both seniors and families.

The facility remained fully occupied as the renovation continued in each area with the Benchmark team working closely with the Dock Woods staff to coordinate temporary accommodations in the various areas as we moved through the phases.

The updated bistro and restaurant are supported by their existing main kitchen and feature a pizza oven, soft serve ice cream and demonstration cooking area.
