The Gables, an independent living facility affiliated with Rutland Regional Medical Center, was Russell’s first project using prefabricated modular construction. The apartments were delivered to the site complete with the exception of finish paint, carpeting, and appliances. Using modular construction saved approximately four months on the schedule. Much of the interior finish work in the common areas, was performed by our own craftsmen.

Phase II included a 22-unit addition and was completed in the fall of 2004.

The Meadows at East Mountain

Assisted Living Facility with separate Special Care Wings in Rutland, Vermont

Client:  The Meadows at East Mountain
Location: Rutland, VT

The Meadows at East Mountain is a sixty room Assisted Living facility
designed to make residents feel at home with cozy common and dining areas and a beautiful garden area with a gazebo.   Large windows, detailed woodworking, multiple fireplaces and chandeliers are found throughout.

In 2007 and 2014, Russell Construction Services built 2 additional Special Care Wings to provide the Assisted Living Facility with a combined total of 20 additional beds to provide an intimate, homey and secure unit for residents assessed with greater physical and/or cognitive limitations. It allows  residents to “age in place” and avoid most long-term nursing home placements. Although it specializes in meeting the needs of those with dementia, it also services those residents who require extra physical support.

The new buildings feature a nurses station, kitchen, dining area office space, and a fenced in back yard with a sensory garden with fountains and stamped concrete sidewalks.

The additions were built while the existing facilities and wings were fully occupied.
