Schuylkill Manor New Nursing Home

Project Name

Schuylkill Manor Nursing Home

Project Description

Prior to beginning work as General Contractor on the new Schuylkill Manor Nursing Home, Quandel worked closely with the facility’s architect to reduce construction costs by more then $250,000 and bring the project well within its budget. Designed to save the facility owner money without sacrificing functionality or visual appeal, Quandel’s cost-saving suggestions enabled the project to stay within its prescribed budgetary parameters and also helped establish a solid working relationship between Quandel, the project’s architect, and Schuylkill Manor Nursing Home. Notable project features included a center courtyard and 25-foot exterior dryvit wall panels which had to be erected by crane.

Quandel was extremely knowledgeable throughout all phases of construction and demonstrated a superior level of on-site leadership and cooperation. Nursing home construction is somewhat of a specialty, and Quandel had the past experience and sensitivity needed to accommodate our special needs. People from our industry have been extremely complimentary, and we always let them know who our builder was. Quandel brought this project in on time and at the agreed-upon price. As a developer, you can’t ask any more from your builder than that.
