Waco, Texas – Despite a global coronavirus outbreak and local rainfall totals to date 20 inches over the annual average, construction on The Blake at Waco remains on schedule.
“Overall, I am very pleased with the current construction pace in Waco,” commented Adam Mitchell, LifeCare Properties’ Director of Development and Construction. “This year has presented a whole host of challenges, from over two months of inclement weather to navigating the pandemic, but we remain on schedule for 2021.”
Work on the site situated at Legends Crossing began in December 2019. Although “weather days” are factored into construction-scheduling, the global health threat declared in March of this year called for unique problem-solving. Anticipating labor and supply chain disruptions the team proactively ordered building materials, FF&E, and continue to creatively overcome obstacles resulting from COVID-19.
The next construction schedule milestones include roof work and window installation, as well as beginning interior work.
