In Conco’s work on the Jewish Home of San Francisco project, they will be providing concrete pumping, reinforcement, formwork, finishing, and shotcrete services, as well as construction trucking. The new Jewish Home community broke ground in the fall of 2016 and is expected to be completed in late 2018.
With 76 memory care units and 114 assisted living residential units, the $140 million, 270,000 sq. ft. new construction will dramatically expand the Jewish Homes facilities and service reach. The Jewish Home of San Francisco first opened its doors in 1891 to a dozen residents and since then has helped many more older adults to live, grow, and flourish in their community. Now the Jewish Home will be a centerpiece in the Excelsior community. President and CEO of the Jewish Home, Daniel Ruth, remarked on the exciting new project, saying, “With our location at the corner of Silver Avenue and Mission Street, we’re extremely proud to be the front door to Excelsior, and we’re proud of our history.”
The nine-acre campus was reimagined by Ankrom Moisan, the architecture firm recently honored by the Seattle Business magazine as one of its “100 Best Companies to Work For.” Ankrom Mosian’s design was inspired by the understanding that overall wellness can only be achieved when seniors’ social and emotional needs are met in addition to their physical ones. With this philosophy in mind, Ankrom Moisan helped the Jewish Home translate their vision into a campus design that promotes life-long learning, engagement with nature, and independence. The design ensures that wherever residents are on the campus – on a stroll, enjoying a meal, or in their rooms – they will never be far from experiencing nature’s rhythms.
During construction, Conco anticipates placing 19,000 cubic yards of concrete as well as providing shotcrete services. The new building is slated to recombine existing landscape areas into a series of three large parks that will revitalize the community and set the stage for a resort-like experience for residents. The project also includes a new auditorium, fitness areas, and art and library spaces.
