Skaalen Retirement Services
Scope: Renovation & New Construction
Area: 13,256 sq ft & 44,280 sq ft
Completion Date: June 2018
Skaalen Retirement Services selected Hoffman to provide master planning services as they looked to reposition their Stoughton campus in southern Wisconsin.
Following the planning effort, Hoffman then provided design and construction services for multiple facility projects.
Most recently completed was 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—which was the third phase in the overall repositioning project—incudes 10 small one-bedroom apartments, 17 medium two-bedroom units, and six larger two-bedroom apartments. Common resident spaces found in the facility include first-floor central dining, living room, and multi-purpose room, and a bathing spa and sitting areas on the upper floors. The three-story facility embodies Skaalen’s desire to create a homelike environment for their residents.
“The people that I have worked with at Hoffman have demonstrated honesty, integrity, and morality. All values that I place great importance on. They have done a masterful job for Skaalen Retirement Services.”
From the facility’s exterior to its interior finishes and amenities, 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.
The project transformed resident double rooms into private rooms; added access, entry, and identity points; and utilized daylight, brighter colors, and modern furniture. The renovation of Magnolia Gardens was recognized by being named a 2018 BUILD Wisconsin Award winner from the Associated General Contractors of Wisconsin.
