(December 1, 2015) ATLANTA, GA – Winter Construction has begun building the new Canterfield Senior Living facility in Bluffton, South Carolina. The facility will include three floors and 74,000 square feet of total space.

Canterfield Senior Living will add a unique luxury facility to the retirement community of the region. Bluffton, and the surrounding Lowcountry region, is known for its growing retirement communities, lower cost of living, and charming and historic settings. Hilton Head Island is just 19 miles from Canterfield of Bluffton.

AtlantaSbased Medical Development Corp (MDC) selected Winter Construction as the general contractor to build the first phase of the new, costSefficient Canterfield community in Bluffton, and similar facilities in Kennesaw, GA, and Franklin, TN. The expected completion date for the first phase of these facilities is fall 2016.

MDC launched the Canterfield luxury senior living brand in 2011. Because MDC is involved in hotel and restaurant properties, the Canterfield concept utilizes both the continuum of healthcare and the services and amenities of the hospitality industry. Canterfield facilities also allow the resident to age in place, a benefit many communities do not offer, while satisfying each individual’s needs and desires in a country clubSlike setting.

AtlantaSbased architecture firm Corcoran Ota Group designed the Canterfield model with construction pricing efficiency in mind. Future maintenance costSreduction is also a primary focus of initial building design.

Winter’s onSsite superintendent, Bo Gray, said, “Winter Construction is excited to team up with the Medical Development Corporation and the Corcoran Ota Group to build a topSnotch facility that will improve lives and enhance the Bluffton community.”
