Today’s seniors want to be purposeful, stay engaged, and continue to make
a difference in the world. Our job as a senior living contractor specializing
in this industry is to build environments that contribute to making that
happen. We help our providers rewrite the rules of aging so that residents
can enjoy life the way it’s meant to be lived regardless of age.
WEAVERCOOKE is building senior living communities to meet the needs
of a revolution. America and the world are growing older. With older
Americans soon to outnumber their children, we’re seeing vast
opportunities and great challenges as we seek to help older adults
continue to live with meaning and purpose.
With greater longevity—often with extended periods of physical and
mental health—that “short period of retirement” has lengthened into
decades. Educational levels exceed those of generations past, and we
enjoy a degree of affluence undreamed of not too long ago.
For us, partnering with CCRCs across the southeast is much more than
constructing buildings, it’s about being invited onto senior housing
campuses and building spaces where people can enjoy living out their

We build independent living, including apartment style buildings and single-
family homes, as well as assisted living and skilled nursing centers. We can
also help manage selections and modifications and manage the myriad of
decisions that residents encounter as they transition from their home of many
years to a new home on a CCRC campus. Our team understands the nuances
involved for residents making this transition and is here to help make the
move a smooth one.
As a senior living contractor, we have managed many projects where residents
are currently living on campus and we know how to minimize daily disruption
on the campus and in the residents’ everyday lives.

St Joseph of the Pines
Memory Care and Clubhouse
Senior Living Construction in Southern Pines, NC
WEAVERCOOKE renovated about one quarter of St Joseph of the Pine’s 43,000 square foot
clubhouse. The fine dining was changed to an open concept kitchen, the library was renovated into a
classic English pub with fireplace, pool table, and TV’s, and a coffee bar was added. Renovations to the
clubhouse were made while the rest of the building was operational, with extensive care to minimize
disruptions for residents.
WEAVERCOOKE also constructed a 7,200 square foot addition to add ten memory care beds to the
campus. The addition features a community living room with a fireplace and large windows, as well as
a kitchen and a beautiful courtyard that looks out on the long leaf pines that surround the community.

The Forest at Duke
Additions and Renovations
Senior Living Construction in Durham, NC
Continuing a long relationship of expansions and renovations at The Forest at Duke, WEAVERCOOKE
provided construction services for this expansion to the campus. We were initially contracted to build 15
new Independent Living cottages with resident selections. Once those were complete, we worked on
sitework that ranged from additional parking and paved walking trails to bioretention ponds.
This led into work on the dining, entrance, and fitness area. The new dining has a cafeteria-style serving
line, a pizza oven, a salad bar, and an open kitchen fine dining area. WEAVERCOOKE also added a bar and
lounge, library, media room, gift shop, and offices for fitness employees. Several areas, including the
fitness center, marketing offices, and IT offices, were given extensive renovations.
