We received a gorgeous building and re-model! Welsh was very professional and did extra things to make small town Mapleton feel big. We would hire Welsh again for a future project.

Project Summary

Welsh completed the concept planning, city entitlements, financing, architecture, interior design, and senior housing construction for Heritage Place of Mapleton.

First, Welsh partnered with Health Dimensions Group to complete a full operational analysis and market study to identify the needs and concerns of Heritage Place. An outdated and uninviting front entry way was one factor contributing to the decline of new residents. Also, many residents had to transfer to facilities 20 miles away in Mankato, because Mapleton did not offer adequate assisted living facilities.

With that, Welsh Construction and Genesis Architecture developed a concept that will better serve the needs of the community. A portion of the skilled nursing facility was remodeled, and a 22,000-square-foot two-story addition of assisted living was added to the current structure. The addition includes a bistro, salon/spa, and other inviting common areas. Welsh’s senior housing construction team carefully completed the project in phases to enable the building to remain occupied.
