Kop Construction Co., of Spokane, has won contracts for two affordable housing projects in Washington state worth a combined almost $5 million.
One is a two-site, $1.6 million Moses Lake, Wash., multifamily project being developed by Community Frameworks, a Spokane-based nonprofit that works to support and develop affordable housing. The other is a planned $3.3 million senior living facility expansion in Leavenworth, Wash.
Community Frameworks has awarded Kop a $1.6 million contract to construct a total of 17 multifamily housing units in Moses Lake. That project is being funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), says Matt Wheelwright, Kop's project manager.
The project will be constructed at two different sites there. Three buildings with a total of 11 apartment units will be constructed at a property at 1447 W. Sunset, and two buildings will be built with a total of six apartment units, at 201 W. Nelson, Wheelwright says. The buildings all will have similar two-story wood frame construction with wood siding and shingled roofs, he says.
Zeck Butler Architects PS, of Spokane, designed the project, Wheelwright says. Kop hopes to begin construction this month and to complete the project in about 10 months.
In Leavenworth, meanwhile, Kop has been selected to construct $3.3 million in additions to the Mountain Meadows Assisted Living facility, located at 320 Park there. The rural nonprofit Mountain Meadows also is seeking HUD funding to help construct that project, says Kop project manager Tim Burns. Kop hopes to begin construction on that project next spring and to complete it in the fall of 2010, he says.
The additions will more than double the facility's size. The contractor will build a three-story, 23,000-square-foot addition to Mountain Meadows' 18,400-square-foot main facility. With the addition, the facility will gain 13 one-bedroom assisted-living units on one level and 11 studio-style, two-bed memory-care units on another level, Burns says. The lower level of the addition will have space for a community bus and two living units that would be added later for staff members, he says.
Also as part of the expansion, Kop will construct four freestanding cottage duplexes, which would be used for independent retirement living at the progressive-care facility. Each of the duplexes will have two 1,100-square-foot units, and each unit will have two bedrooms.
Ross Deckman Architects, of Puyallup, designed the project.
