The Meadows Mennonite Retirement Community partnered with the Normal, Illinois congregation of the Apostolic Church to develop this mixed use development that started with an assisted living facility. Long term plans include the addition of retirement duplexes, quadplexes, a single family home subdivision, a congregate living apartment building, a skilled nursing center, a commercial center and community facilities.
In the first phase of this project, the 90 acre site was developed including the construction of sewers, roadways, storm water detention ponds, sidewalks and other utilities. The assisted living facility contains sixty (60) one and two bedroom apartments and a community building with food preparation facilities, a large dining room, community spaces and administrative offices.
P.J. Hoerr served as the Design/Builder for the project and was responsible for both the design and construction of the subdivision and the assisted living facility. PJ Hoerr first assembled a design team and then developed a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP). With the Owner’s input, the team developed the design and then worked with local city and county government officials to assure that the project received governmental approval.
P.J. Hoerr then constructed the project and beat the original schedule by approximately two weeks. The facility was subsequently inspected and approved by the Illinois Department of Health. At project completion, P.J. Hoerr returned $540,000 to the Owners by completing the project at a cost under the original GMP.
