In 2009, Yanik was selected by Benedictine Health System (BHS) as Owner’s Representative for a new Senior Housing with Services facility to be featured on the River’s Edge Hospital & Clinics healthcare campus. Yanik assisted with selection of the architectural firm, acted as a liaison with the City of St. Peter and River’s Edge Hospital, worked closely with the owner during the programming phase and through design completion, and city approval to begin construction.
In 2010, after development of the building was completed, Yanik continued to work closing with the owner on the project in a construction management role. Yanik bid all aspects of construction using trades located within the surrounding community. Yanik provided a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) to the Owner after vetting numerous subcontractors.
Benedictine Living Community of St. Peter was designed so that tenants can live in apartment-style accommodations with a variety of services to enhance their quality of life. The 46 apartments include one bedroom, one bedroom with den, and two bedroom floor plans, and feature a private dining area, party room, reflection space, and underground parking for the residents.
The building was developed on the River’s Edge Hospital campus and is connected via link to the existing Long Term Care facility, hospital and clinics. Meals, activities, housekeeping, laundry, and supportive oversight within a secured apartment complex are the base elements of the tenant agreement.
Home healthcare and supportive services have been tailor made for each individual. As individual situations change, accessible healthcare services on the campus can integrate the care and services needed. As a natural progression to the development of the River’s Edge healthcare campus, it is envisioned that this senior housing will continue the unification of healthcare, independence and choice. As a senior housing with services registered building, tenants can live in apartment-style accommodations with a variety of services available to enhance their quality of life.
