LeChase creates vaccination space for Cypress of Raleigh

Having a proper space to give injections and monitor recipients afterwards is a key element in rolling out coronavirus vaccine. Earlier this week, LeChase helped The Cypress of Raleigh prepare an on-site space to meet that need.

Temporary partitions surround an unused dining room that serves as observation space for staff and residents receiving coronavirus vaccine.

Last fall, LeChase completed a 22-bed expansion project at the continuing care retirement community’s onsite Rosewood Health Center. Following the expansion, LeChase was engaged to renovate the Health Center’s existing wings. This work is being phased one wing at a time to prevent construction from impacting the Center’s operations.

Superintendent Burnice Laws, of LeChase’s Durham office,  has been a part of both projects. That’s why, when Cypress management expressed a need to set up vaccination space for residents and staff, Laws was able to work with them on an alternative to outdoor tent setups – saving both time and money.

With Cypress’s access to the vaccine rapidly approaching, LeChase stepped in to repurpose a currently unused dining room into an observation space for those receiving the vaccine. The temporary partition for the observation space was constructed on Tuesday to allow Cypress to begin vaccinations on Wednesday.

“It is nice to have a hand in providing the club this area to help combat the pandemic,” Laws noted.
