Construction Update – September 29, 2017
September 29, 2017
Carpet installation will begin in the hallway between Bedford Terrace entrance and Abingdon Neighborhood on Friday, October 6th, at 5 pm, and will be completed by late afternoon on Saturday, October 7th. Guests of Abingdon Neighborhood residents will be directed to enter through the doors near Abingdon Living Room.
While we are making a great deal of progress on various aspects of our expansion, we are required by law to obtain a “Certificate of Occupancy” for each new space. These Certificates are issued by inspection officials at James City County, and are the last step before spaces become available for use. As of today, here are the areas available to both residents and team members:
- Activities Room
- Health Services Beauty Salon/Barber Shop
- Administrative Offices
- Manchester House’s kitchen was inspected this week by James City County officials. The officials issued a temporary Certificate of Occupancy which allows staff to use the space. Residents not permitted to enter until the permanent Certificate is issued, which is scheduled to occur sometime next week.
- Similarly, a temporary Certificate is expected today for Hadley House’s addition.
- Planting began this week and will continue for several days until the landscaping plan has been fully accomplished.
Hadley House’s laundry room remains unavailable; please use Abingdon Neighborhood’s laundry.
