Project Overview

Longmont, CO

In 2011, Longmont Housing Authority acquired a former three-story hotel to convert to a supportive housing facility. The Suites is a multi-family residential facility that helps its residents maintain independence. The unit mix consisted of one- and two-bedroom apartments, but needed to be reconfigured to have a greater number of studio apartments.

The rehabilitation project converted two-bedroom units into studio and one- bedroom apartments, and changed the overall configuration from 70 units to 84. Offices, dining rooms, and living/sitting areas were also remodeled, as well as the elevator lobby on all three floors.

Existing units were remodeled with new flooring and paint, minor drywall repairs, and new electric stove top/oven units. New electrical lines off of a new panel were brought into the new units. The fire alarm system was upgraded. The facility has new ceiling tile and light fixtures throughout as well as plumbing fixture upgrades.

Exterior work included demolition and site work, a new patio area remodel, a new gazebo/covered smoking area, and minor concrete repair in the parking lot.

"Hiring Krische Construction as our general was the best thing we did. They are amazing. They kept the schedule and actually were able to get ahead a full week. Krische’s subcontractors and staff were patient with staff and residents. They worked through each obstacle with professionalism and confidence. There is absolutely no way we could have pulled this kind of occupied rehab off without Krische driving the bus."
