As original architects of Dearness Home, MMMC is collaborating with the City of London on an addition / renovation project that will feature an expanded, flexible multi-purpose room that will function as an auditorium, chapel and meeting room space with moveable walls, servery and washrooms. An addition will include a sun room, storage space and new Day Centre Program entrance. Currently in design, construction will commence in early 2022.
MMMC was retained in September 2018 to collaborate with the Region of Niagara on the planning and redevelopment of two Municipal Long-term Care Homes – Linhaven in St.Catharines and Gilmore Lodge in Fort Erie. The new Gilmore Lodge, to be constructed on a greyfield site, will be a modern, state-of-the-art home for 160 residents featuring a great room, library, café, celebration board room, and worship centre. One Resident Home Area will be a Convalescent Care Unit providing quality care to individuals in the community who need time and support to recover from a hospital visit before returning home.
The new Acclaim Health Dementia Care Centre is set to transform dementia care in Halton Region. This project is an adaptive re-use of an existing industrial building in Oakville. The new multi-faceted hub will include two seniors day programs, 8-bed respite program, caregiver support areas, a year-round recreation garden and administrative space.
The phased redevelopment of Elgin County’s Terrace Lodge includes an addition and renovations to the existing 100-bed home. The new home will have 84 private bedrooms and 16 semi-private, and improved resident spaces similar to a new Class A facility. All Resident Home Areas are designed to meet or exceed the Ministry Design Guidelines as well as a focus on therapeutic and healing environments and universal design. In addition to the existing library and salon, the new Terrace Lodge facility will contain a family suite, a new chapel, event space, gift shop, and tuck shop. The new building will wrap around a large outdoor courtyard. The project is under construction with completion scheduled for 2023.
MMMC is pleased to be collaborating with Radiant Care on the redevelopment of Pleasant Manor LTC in Virgil, Ontario.
MMMC is collaborating with Saint Luke’s Place the redevelopment of a new 160-bed long-term care facility to meet current MLTC design standards. The new long-term care facility will be constructed adjacent to the existing buildings on land that includes a portion of land currently owned by Saint Luke’s United Church. The existing LTC home will remain in full operation through construction to avoid the downsizing of services to residents.
Constructed in four phases, the first phase of this new London, ON student residential campus, completed in 2019, included two 4-storey buildings containing a total of 56 student suites. Each suite is a self-contained 4 bedroom furnished apartment containing a full kitchen, living room, washer / dryer, and four private bedrooms each having a private bathroom. A separate, central amenity building 'clubhouse' provides group and private study rooms, fitness centre, social lounge with billiards, kitchen and soft seating, and a sales centre. Lower level provides bicycle and locker storage lockers. An outdoor private terrace is perfect for community gatherings and social events. The final phase is in construction and will be completed in Fall 2021.
A new 4 storey, 122-unit retirement residence in Orangeville, ON, complements the existing facility of similar size. Phase II includes 24 studio units, 65-one bedroom apartments, and 33-two bedroom apartments along with comfortable dining and entertainment spaces. The new building will be connected to the existing structure with a generous first story link and will be fully accessible. Scheduled for completion in 2021.
Acclaim Health officially kicked off the public fundraising campaign to bring an innovative dementia care centre to the Town of Oakville. Local residents have been pitching in to help reach the $5 million fundraising goal that would have the facility open by mid-2020.
