Pinkard Construction Company Breaks Ground on $76.5 million Frasier Meadows Master Plan

BOULDER, CO – Construction manager Pinkard Construction, with owner Frasier Meadows and Hord Coplan Macht Architects, recently held a celebration and blessing of Frasier Meadows’ upcoming Master Plan expansion. The Saturday, October 14 event, entitled “Frasier Forward,” kicked off the $90+ million (soft costs) construction project with a ceremonial demolition of the old flood-damaged assisted living building on Frasier’s 20-acre Boulder campus.

Designed by Hord Coplan Macht Architects, Frasier’s Master Plan expansion includes 98 additional independent living apartments, a new Arts and Education building, an expanded Wellness Center, and extensive renovations of dining venues. As Colorado’s only CARF-accredited continuing care retirement community, Frasier has been dedicated to helping seniors enjoy vibrant and fulfilling lives since 1960.

More than 300 people attended the festivities that included speeches from Boulder Mayor Suzanne Jones, State Representative Edie Hooton, Reverend Karen Howe, Frasier Board of Trustees Past Chair Jon Kottke, Frasier President and CEO Timothy A. Johnson, Frasier Chaplain Bob Ritzen, Frasier resident (and past Colorado State Representative and State Senator) Dorothy Rupert, and Frasier resident Alex Herzog.

“Truly, Frasier’s past is the foundation that inspires our future dreams. After the devastating 2013 flood that greatly affected us, a new genesis of our Master Plan began to take shape. It’s been four years of planning and working with the residents, staff, the City, and our Master Plan partners, to arrive at this point – and we couldn’t be more pleased for the future of Frasier, ” stated Frasier President Tim Johnson.

For the ceremonial demolition of the old Assisted Living building, residents, guests, and staff were allowed to take turns operating huge backhoes to take “swipes” at the old building.
