The Center at Lincoln is a 3-story, 77,500 SF, skilled nursing facility located on a 3-acre site. Prior to The Center at Lincoln, patients in the Denver metro area who required skilled nursing and rehabilitation had few choices other than to be admitted to a traditional nursing home. Today, The Center at Lincoln provides additional choice to patient seeking rehabilitative care in the Denver region and continues to provide world class care to its patients.
The project includes 96 patient beds, a full kitchen and dining area, complete physical therapy gym, a salon, and administration area. The steel building construction consisted of a precast structure with an architectural precast façade in a design-build delivery.
Wells Concrete was involved in this skilled nursing facility from conceptual design through erection, performing on an accelerated schedule of 21 weeks from notice to proceed to erection completion. In addition to providing design assist services to the team, Wells coordinated all MEP penetrations with the MEP engineers and pre-formed all openings during production. This resulted in a cost savings to the owner as it reduced significant field time by eliminating the work of locating and cutting openings post pour.
A precast concrete solution for this project provided clear spans and column free spaces allowing the design team flexibility in the programming phase of design. The Design Team made use of architectural load bearing wall panels with punched openings and stone textures to create the desired look for this unique project.
