Shelton, CT –  Brightview Senior Living in Shelton is well on its way to a spring 2019 completion. The latest addition to Brightview’s assortment of communities is located at 30 Beard Sawmill Road just off Route 8 between New Haven and Bridgeport.

Longtime partner PROCON of Manchester, N.H. is the architect and construction manager for the 168,000sf project.

The four-story design features 161 luxury apartments in a variety of styles and care options.  The apartment choices include 87 Independent Living, 48 Assisted Living and 26 Wellspring Village® Apartment Homes. Wellspring Village® is a specialized Brightview neighborhood designed to enhance the lives of those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

“One notable feature of this building is the beautiful views that can already be seen from the Wellspring Village dining area overlooking the nearby farm” stated PROCON’s project manager.”

The design is intended to encourage residents to connect with the outdoors by importing plenty of natural light with cathedral ceilings and oversized windows throughout the community. The overall design features a farmhouse style vernacular with bays, a gabled roof, balconies, porches and an attractive porte-cochere entrance to blend with the surrounding countryside.

Construction is divided into sections with different phases of installation underway simultaneously. Section C is undergoing finishes while section B receives drywall and section A undergoes MEP work and rough-ins.

As today’s older adults seek to remain active in their post-retirement years, the amenities and services offered make Brightview Senior Living the premier place for seniors looking for independent living, assisted living and dementia care.

“This job requires some detailed and precise installations and I have been really impressed with the way our team has pushed ahead to stay on target and do a great job with all the components” added the Project Manager.

Onsite amenities will include a fitness center, a pub, theater, beauty/barber shop, café, library/media room and elegant dining rooms. Group activities, clubs, games, and hobbies will be included in the environment to encourage gathering and socializing. Lastly, housekeeping, dining, transportation, maintenance, chef-prepared meals and an expertly trained, caring staff will all be included in Brightview Shelton’s all-inclusive living experience.

Brightview Senior Living Development offers senior living communities in eight states – Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Virginia. They include Independent Living, Assisted Living and Dementia Care options. Brightview is committed to creating vibrant senior living communities by providing excellent service and creating environments that are great places to live and great places to work.
