S. M. Wilson to Build Skilled Nursing Facility and Independent Living Addition in Central Illinois

S. M. Wilson & Co. recently communicated that it will construct two new senior living facility additions worth approximately $12 million at the Concordia Village senior living campus in Springfield, Illinois operated by St. Louis-based Lutheran Senior Services. The projects include a new $10 million Skilled Nursing Facility and a $2 million Patio Homes addition to the Continuing Care Retirement Community for independent living. S. M. Wilson will provide pre-construction and construction management services for both new projects and work is expected to begin immediately. 

The new 49,000 square foot Skilled Nursing Facility will contain four clusters of 16 resident rooms each and is expected to be completed in the summer of 2011.  The entire facility will be connected to the recently completed Concordia Village Campus expansion, and will also include new central laundry to service the entire Concordia Village Campus.


The 18,000 square foot Patio Homes addition will include three new three-unit independent living homes of approximately 2,000 square feet each. The homes will include two- and three-bedroom, two-bath units, all with attached garages and a wireless nurse call system connected to the campus’ central communications.  The new homes will complement the 14 existing independent living Patio Homes built by S. M. Wilson in 2009 during the $30 million Phase I of the Concordia Village Continuing Care Retirement Community expansion.  The Work on the Patio Homes is expected to be completed in December 2010.
