Diakon Lutheran Social Services – Cottage Renovations

  • Location

    Various Campuses in PA & MD

  • Owner

    Diakon Lutheran Social Ministries

Diakon Lutheran Social Ministries offers a continuum of senior lifestyle and health-care services to their tenants throughout Pennsylvania and Maryland. With nearly 30 service centers and senior living and housing communities, Wagman was pleased to help in the renovation of cottages across their various campuses.

Extensive interior renovations were completed to prepare the cottages for new tenants. This included new finishes for wood flooring, ceramic tile, casework and painting. In addition, energy-efficient and water conservation features have been implemented. Each updated cottage received new HVAC systems, plumbing fixtures, ENERGY STAR® appliances, and additional insulation and weatherization sealing of the envelope.

Tenants were able to request options such as one or two-car garages, covered porches and sunrooms.

Key Challenges & Project Details

  • Cottage renovations ranged from 1,200 – 2,100 SF.
  • Wagman worked with a variety of schedules to ensure cottages are ready for tenants on their move-in date.
  • Renovations were completed on occupied campuses and require careful coordination of trades to divert residents around active construction areas.
