Exciting Group Home and Day Program Renovations in the Works

March 23rd, 2018

The Arc of Essex County’ property management team has been working diligently on four new capital improvement projects.

The Washington group home is receiving an interior and exterior facelift. The renovations will provide greater accessibility in the home, such as in the bathroom and bedrooms, ramping for an accessible egress, and a new addition off of the back of the home creating more space. The Cedar Grove home is expecting similar renovations as well as a new fire sprinkler system. Finally, the Millburn group home will undergo interior revitalization for greater accessibility and a new fire sprinkler system.  The anticipated completion dates for all three group home projects is mid-June.

Renovations at The Arc’s West Caldwell Hub will focus mainly on the interior. The Arc of Essex County’s property management team will reconfigure the entry way area and open up existing program space to make larger rooms. They also plan to install an alternate, primary entry door on the right side of the building into the program.  The project will kick off later this spring.
