Lutheran Services for Aging, Summit Developers team up

Two Salisbury-based organizations will work together to construct a 117-bed skilled care nursing home in Forsyth County.
Lutheran Services for the Aging has awarded Summit Developers the construction contract for Trinity Glen, the new home to be built on Water Works Road in Winston-Salem. The project will cost about $10.2 million.
The home will be one of two nursing homes LSA will construct to replace its existing 217-bed Lutheran Home—Winston-Salem.
“After a competitive bidding process, we are pleased to announce that we will partner with Summit Developers in creating this beautiful new home for our residents,” said Kesha Smith, LSA director of special projects.
Summit has worked with LSA in the past, most recently renovating LSA’s business offices and Abundant Living Adult Day Services, both in Salisbury.
Contemporary in concept, Trinity Glen will feature a state-of-the-art neighborhood design and gathering spots, chapel, outdoor courtyards and gardens, a playground for children, buffet-style dining, wireless Internet and enhanced safeguards for residents needing memory care.
Summit President Clay Lindsey said, “We welcome the opportunity to work with Lutheran Services for the Aging again.”
Designed by Wilmington architect David Polston, site work for the 69,062- square-foot, 117-bed nursing home project is slated to begin mid-January. It will be one of the first major construction projects for eastern Forsyth County in more than 10 years.
Trinity Elms, a 100-bed home, is scheduled for construction in 2013.
LSA operates nursing homes in Hickory, Albemarle and Salisbury, and is building a 100-bed home in Wilmington.
