Leopardo Begins Work on 50,000-SF Addition and Expansion for Covenant Living at Windsor Park

Leopardo recently began work on a 50,000-square-foot addition and expansion for Covenant Living at Windsor Park retirement and senior living community in Carol Stream, Illinois. Sitting on 60 acres, the community offers residents an independent living retirement lifestyle with numerous amenities and access to assisted living, skilled nursing, memory care, rehabilitation and more.

This expansion comes as part of a capital improvement construction project aimed at meeting the growing need for assisted living options in DuPage County. A virtual groundbreaking ceremony was held on November 18 and was attended by Covenant Living leadership and the mayor of the Village of Carol Stream.

The addition will feature 36 new assisted living residences and a new rehabilitation area for physical and occupational therapy to be accessible to residents if needed. The community will have a state-of-the-art HVAC system designed for air purification and improved indoor air quality. Work will also include various renovations to the existing Windsor Park Manor at Covenant Living, adding new skilled nursing rooms and two new memory care suites.

“The need for safe and healthy residences for the senior community has never been more critical than it is today,” said Leopardo Senior Vice President Giancarlo Pacini. “We could not be more excited about working with such a great team to fulfill this need.”

Leopardo’s team is also working closely with Covenant Living to implement special safety precautions that ensure the job site and residents are kept safe throughout construction and into occupancy.

Leopardo is collaborating with Covenant Living, Witz Company and THW Design to complete the project by December 2021.
