Natick, MA Callahan Construction Managers (Callahan) has completed two new senior living residences on behalf of Anthology Senior Living in Natick and Millis, Mass. Specializing in creating a boutique-inspired senior living experience, Anthology Senior Living has set a new standard in senior living. Each of its locations combines the best in accommodations, care, culinary experiences, and community. With top-of-the-line amenities and floor plans, each residence features designed spaces by The Architectural Team (TAT).
In the face of unprecedented challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and supply chain disruptions, Callahan was impressed with the dedication and unwavering commitment of the project team. Despite these hurdles, their perseverance, creativity, and tireless efforts not only ensured the timely completion of the projects but reflected the true spirit of the Callahan organization.
For one of the commercial kitchens, Callahan needed to install a walk-in freezer, but due to supply chain delays the lead time for this core component was increased. Callahan switched subcontractors to a company that could produce the equipment more quickly and was able to keep the project on schedule. Callahan’s trade partners also added extra labor and overtime to help make up the time that was lost to procurement delays, further shepherding the project along and helping it meet projected milestones despite these challenges.
Each complex includes amenities designed to enhance the quality of life for residents. Anthology of Natick is located at 119 East Central St., outside the city center and near the Natick Mall and the Natick Community Senior Center. The project included 62 assisted living and 24 memory care units as well as a commercial kitchen, fitness room, theater, and other amenities in an 82,274 s/f building.
Located near the Charles River, Anthology of Millis is an 117,268 s/f complex at 125 Dover Rd. A community located near downtown Medfield, it offers access to the amenities of both Medfield and Millis. Callahan constructed 14 independent living townhouses plus a main building with 67 assisted living units and 24 memory care units.
“We are immensely proud of Callahan Construction and the entire team for their exceptional dedication and resilience throughout the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and supply chain disruptions,” said Graham Peterson, senior vice president of construction at Anthology Senior Living. “Their unwavering commitment to excellence has not only resulted in the successful completion of these projects but has also set a new benchmark for luxury senior living communities. We are confident that these residences will provide an enriching, vibrant, and safe environment for our residents, fostering a sense of community and belonging.”
