Partners to Deliver Quality Living Choices for Seniors
If you drive around at all you are sure to see a new senior housing project under construction. The demand is driven by the aging baby boomers and many are looking to maintain a high standard of living enjoyed in their previous homes but get rid of the worry and hassle of maintaining property.
Fairchild has partnered with one of Indiana’s premier developers of these properties. Justus Companies, headquartered in Indianapolis, seeks out best in class construction partners to build and maintain these communities. They’ve relied on Fairchild to design and build communications, entertainment, and security systems that help them operate efficiently while providing a great environment for the residents. Woodland Terrace of Carmel and New Palestine are two of their premier projects with Fairchild solutions.
Angela Miller, Vice President of Operations for Justus, leads the development efforts from the initial concept to the successful completion. She says that Fairchild Healthcare Market Manager, Brendan Murphy, is a very valuable part of the team. “Brendan spends the time with us to learn and then educates us on options. We never feel like Fairchild is there to just sell the most expensive solution,“ Miller says. She further explains that they partner with Fairchild because they also have strong manufacturer relationships and quality installation practices. They are also a good construction partner. This requires the ability to coordinate the technology scope of work with the other construction trades for an efficient and on budget project. Miller adds that Justus prefers locally owned and operated companies like Fairchild as long as they have the product, competitive pricing, and quality installation and service. They like that Murphy and other team members are very accessible and are able to meet personally as often as needed. Justus sets themselves apart in the market by not building “cookie cutter” housing. This requires an ongoing evaluation of solutions.
