(May 28, 2015) ATLANTA, GA – Atlanta-based Medical Development Corp (MDC) has selected Winter Construction as the general contractor to build the new, cost-efficient Canterfield senior living communities in Kennesaw, GA, Franklin, TN and Bluffton, SC. The expected completion date for these first phases is Summer 2016.
The Canterfield prototype includes 91 Assisted Living units with a 20-bed Memory Care neighborhood. In addition, future Independent Living facilities will include a 76-unit apartment building and 11 one and two bedroom villas. Size of the units will range from 500 square feet for the Assisted Living units to 1,500 square feet and more for the Independent Living homes. Medical Development Corp will own, develop and manage the properties.
The Canterfield luxury senior living brand was launched by Medical Development Corporation in 2011. Their involvement in hotel and restaurant properties allows the Canterfield concept to combine the continuum of healthcare with the services and amenities of the hospitality industry.
The Canterfield Assisted Living design model, created by Atlanta based architecture firm Corcoran Ota Group, is a proven brand design with construction pricing efficiency in mind. Its design incorporates lessons learned in the hospitality world. Future maintenance cost reduction is also a primary focus of initial building design.
“Because Winter Construction has experience in both senior healthcare and hospitality industries, this is the perfect partnership. We share the goal of using our strengths to create a senior living facility that offers an unsurpassed standard of living to its residents,” stated Harry Keller, Senior Project Manager with Winter Construction.
