Northern New Jersey-based J.G. Petrucci Co., Inc., a development and design/build construction firm, started construction on a home and community-based brain injury rehabilitation center near Lewes.
The development and design/build construction project features 78 units for PeachTree Health Group. The full-service, 24-hour assisted living facility, will provide brain injury rehabilitation services to its residents.
Sussex County is seeing rapid population growth by East Coast standards, with a sizable part of the population gain coming from older residents who may be in need of rehab services related to strokes or other events.
“The mission of this firm is critical to our communities and we are pleased to be working with them again on a second project as they continue their expansion into new markets,” stated Greg Rogerson, principal at J.G. Petrucci. “We look forward to delivering another successful project to this team!”
The $20-million project will feature a full-service restaurant-style family dining with state of the art kitchen equipment and design, activity rooms, physical therapy services, exercise rooms, and more.
“We needed a partner that really understood our operations to expand our services into the Delaware market,” stated Jim O’Connor, President of PeachTree Health Group. “We felt comfortable working with the J.G. Petrucci team again since they brought so much value and knowledge to our project in Warminster, PA. The team achieved our full development approvals in less than 4-months and construction is coming along much quicker than we had excepted.”
The project was designed by Cerminara Architect. Bohler Engineering is the civil engineer. Construction work is being completed by J.G. Petrucci’s in-house construction firm, Iron Hill Construction Management based in Bethlehem, PA.
