One of the areas that the Board of Directors wants to have accomplished is an engineering and architectural report on Bay Village’s 43-year-old building. I have contracted with the firm SFCS out of Roanoke, Virginia, to perform this task. SFCS will look at all areas of the building to include outside architectural systems (roof, windows, and doors), HVAC systems, HVAC performance, plumbing, and electrical systems. Their findings will be placed into a report that will provide Bay Village a road map for capital replacement and improvement plans for the next 20 years.
SFCS will also be of assistance in developing the master plan for the campus. A few months ago I shared with you the strategic plan for Bay Village that was developed earlier this year. The Board of Directors has approved this plan. The master plan will take the strategic initiatives and set a timeline and costs for the strategic plan. This goes hand-in-hand with the engineering and architectural study mentioned earlier.
The third area of focus for SFCS is to assist Bay Village with the conceptual design for our Memory Care center. They will facilitate the discussions with the Bay Village team to identify opportunities, goals and successful outcomes for the new Memory Care program. They will also help Bay Village in developing the guiding principles to be utilized throughout the design and development process of the new Memory Care.
I look forward to the partnership between SFCS and Bay Village as we continue our enhancements to our campus.
