The Deerwood is a six-story residential building consisting of 46 units, offering six distinct floor plans for residents. The facility features parking levels below to cater to residents' parking needs. Additionally, there is a healthcare expansion, which is a four-story addition located on the North end of the building, accompanied by a two-level addition to the power plant. This two-level addition is connected to the existing building through a bridge, facilitating interior renovations. Healthcare renovations encompassed every level within the occupied healthcare building, including the installation of a new kitchen.


  • The project included changing the infrastructure of the Sharon Towers facilities from steam to hot water systems, bringing two new utility transformers with new switchboards.
  • All systems were operational throughout construction, including the upgrade of their fire alarm and nurse call systems.
  • Messer also built a new kitchen in the same location as the existing condition by creating temporary dining and kitchen areas to keep it operational.
