SENIOR LIVING | SHEPHERD’S CROSSING

LOCATION: BEL AIRE, KS

The third phase in the Catholic Care Center development to provide independent living, comprising of a community building, 17 duplexes, and 2 four-plexes. built over five years to tie in with reserved sales and the availability of the owner's budget. Simpson provided a projection of housing costs and divided the infrastructure cost to spread it out over the five years. The two-bedroom, two-bath units are clad with a combination of masonry and siding. Simpson worked with the owner to update the design of the homes built previously on the site. The value engineering result gave the residents a greater allowance for modifications and enhancements and upgraded the standard cabinets and countertops.

Simpson managed the modification and design review with each new resident, providing bespoke budgeting and personal on-site walkthroughs. With homes sold before construction began, Simpson accelerated the schedule to assist the owner in occupying the houses as soon as possible. The community center services all residents with a commercial-grade kitchen and dining facilities, fitness room, administration offices, and facility management storage and workshop.

The community center underwent a value engineering exercise, which Simpson coupled with a CMAR approach. Simpson retained all the functions and the standard of aesthetics desired by the owner but met their budget.
