Warfel originally built the Bluebird Wing of the Woodcrest Villa complex in 2001. The main objective of this renovation project was to revitalize and modernize the dining experience for the residents in this wing; transitioning from the traditional buffet-style by creating a warm, bistro atmosphere and increasing adjacent social spaces such as the library.
The renovation was sequenced in three phases in an effort to keep one of the two food service areas open throughout the duration of construction: Phase 1 encompassed a renovation of the second floor Bluebird Inn, dining areas, and staff offices, and enclosure of two balconies to create additional dining space. Phase 2 consisted of the complete demolition and renovation of the Market Place which is used by residents as a convenience store. Phase 3 included the renovation of the first floor Garden café and dining areas. A new entrance canopy and windows were added as well. The main element and focus of work for all phases was the food service areas. All three areas, the Bluebird Inn, the Garden Café, and the Market Place received new food service equipment and a complete change in layout.
