Maple Reinders was awarded the contract to construct a new 128-bed Long-Term Care Facility in the town of Port Hope, Ontario.
The building is a two-storey wood frame construction building, with exterior finishes of brick veneer, pre-finished wood siding, and vinyl siding. The facility also incorporates a wood front entry porch, second-floor balcony, and courtyard trellis elements.
Residents live in four separate “home areas” of 32 beds each, making for a more intimate living, lounging and eating spaces.
Extendicare residents also have the use of common rooms, an interfaith chapel, a “celebration” dining room, a beauty salon and a full conventional cooking central kitchen and central laundry.
The construction of the school took place while the existing Westbrook School (built in 1953) was in use for an entire school year. The contract included abatement and demolition of the existing school which was undertaken during the summer break.
