We went there to tour communities owned by Beztak Properties, which specializes in development and management of multi-family residential and senior living communities. The visit showed why the Michigan-based company has been a leader in its industry for more than half a century.
“What struck me was how happy the residents were in these communities,” said Sundt Regional Vice President Ian McDowell. “They were proud of living there.”
Construction is under way on site work for Beztak’s All Seasons Oro Valley community. All Seasons will include 147 one- and two-bedroom apartments that provide independent and assisted living as well as memory care options. There will be 20 casitas that provide additional living options. The project includes a three-story, 184,000-square-foot main facility with an additional 22,000 square feet in the casitas.
Sundt is collaborating with Tofel Construction on the project. While each firm has substantial experience in this sector, combining our expertise will make us a formidable team and help us ensure Beztak’s success.
Meeting deadlines on a project like this is dependent on establishing the right workflow.
“When you have this many units, getting the crew sizes right and moving efficiently from unit to unit is the key,” Ian said.
This is a great opportunity for our team to work with Beztak, which has developed more than 15,000 living units over six decades of operation. It has three operating communities in Michigan (Rochester Hills, West Bloomfield and Birmingham) as well as a location in Naples, Florida.
The project is expected to be completed in summer 2019.
