How We Succeed in The Senior Living Environment
by Ryan Null, Director of Special Construction Services
There’s a reason why residents at Presby’s Inspired Life senior living facility stop the superintendent and tell him what a pleasure it is having the Horst Special Services team working in their living space—and that reason starts with Ryan Null. Ryan learned the ropes early on in his career, having managed a number of complex renovations at the VA Hospital in Virginia. There, he was often renovating a wing, just a few feet away from returning veterans being treated for major injuries.
“To us, every renovation or upgrade project is really part of our client’s master plan, where we strive to participate as an integral partner and resource. This illustrates our overall approach—which is to give our clients the VIP treatment.”
Horst Construction not only specializes in senior living environments, but also strives to become an integral part of the facilities team—whether planning for the future or addressing emergency repairs. Horst understands what it takes to work in a fully functional healthcare facility and we employ a staff of qualified field employees who prioritize the safety of residents and staff.
When renovating or upgrading senior living facilities, it is ingrained in our approach that we must minimize the disruption to both the staff and residents, and be willing (and able) to accommodate everyone’s schedules. Once you come to understand and respect that these facilities are people’s homes, you adopt a completely different mindset—one that is resident-centric and aligns with the owner’s goals.
