PARIC will officially celebrate the groundbreaking of the Lutheran Senior Services LSS Lenoir Woods facility on.  This campus repositioning, known to the LSS community as “Expanding Our Legacy,” will offer four levels of continuing care retirement options, independent living, short term care, assisted living, and skilled nursing assistance.  “We are very excited to kick off the next phase of this project,” said Todd Goodrich, Vice President of Senior Living at PARIC.  “Lutheran Senior Services is a wonderful client to work with and we couldn’t be happier with the progress we have made on this campus.”

PARIC began construction this month on the $9 million second phase of the $50 million total renovation and expansion of Lenoir Woods Senior Living Community, located in Columbia, Missouri.  This phase will consist of a two story assisted living and memory care building that will provide 20 assisted living beds and 20 memory care/assisted living beds.  The facility is designed to mimic a private home setting yet offer all the additional amenities of a modern retirement community.

This project is expected to generate 80-100 construction related jobs and should be completed in ten months.  Hiring a workforce comprised of the local community is a top priority for LSS and PARIC.  To this point a variety of local subcontractors have been contracted to participate on this project including Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc., Linneman/Vetter/Sanders, LLC., Meyer Electric, Questec Mechanical, Tech Electronics, Mainline Fire Protection, and Keeven Heating and Cooling.

“This expansion will rejuvenate and renew this community, and reposition it for tomorrow,” said Mark Schoedel, LSS vice president for construction and information technology. “With the great team we have working on this, Lenoir Woods will continue to be a leader in senior living in Columbia and mid-Missouri.”  Future phases of this project will include a state-of-the-art healthcare center and independent living apartments.
