Hoffman Completes Work at Skaalen Campus in Stoughton
Project features upgraded CBRF and new Residential Care Apartment Complex

(Appleton, Wis.) – Hoffman Planning, Design & Construction of Appleton recently completed the third phase of the campus repositioning for Skaalen Retirement Services in Stoughton, Wis. The phase three project saw the design and construction of Skaalen Heights, a new Residential Care Apartment Complex (RCAC) with a mix of units. The 41,000 square foot building incudes 10 small one-bedroom apartments, 17 medium two-bedroom units, and six larger two-bedroom apartments.

“The addition of Skaalen Heights to our Stoughton campus will allow us to provide a new level of care within our established continuum,” said Kris Krentz, Skaalen Retirement Services President and CEO.

Julie Heiberger, senior project architect for Hoffman, said the three-story facility embodies Skaalen’s desire to create a homelike environment for their residents. “From the facility’s exterior to its interior finishes and amenities—such as a multi-purpose room and bathing spa—Skaalen Heights offers residents a warm and welcoming environment that very closely resembles home.”

Previous phases of Skaalen’s campus repositioning included the renovation of its existing skilled care memory care—Magnolia Gardens—into a 16-unit Community Based Residential Facility (CBRF).

The goal with Magnolia Gardens, which was an aging facility, was to upgrade its systems, make energy improvements, and refresh the facility to eliminate its institutional look and feel.

“Magnolia Gardens was completed beyond my expectations,” stated Krentz. “The area was totally renovated from a dark and gloomy environment to one that takes advantage of natural light and bright finishes. I am blessed with great staff that provide excellent resident care. I now have an environment that comes close to equaling the care provided.”

Hoffman provided master planning services—that began in 2013—for Skaalen’s campus repositioning, along with design and construction services.
