Messiah Village is a senior living community offering cottages and apartment-style living to adults 62 or older. The master plan for the Village Center renovations involves a multi-year, multi-phased approach.

Renovations and upgrades involved the main lobby and corridors, support core, multi-purpose room, board room, foundation room, chapel/support core, additional corridors and restrooms, nurses’ stations, dining halls and gift shop. Wagman worked with the design team to identify opportunities for suitable alternatives that kept the interior design flowing, matched the Owner’s vision and were cost effective.

Working within an occupied space, safety is always a primary concern. To ensure a safe environment and limit interruptions to daily operations, the majority of construction was completed overnight.
