MultiCare Tree House
Located in the historic setting of Frances Hall Apartments, Tree House is MultiCare’s housing complex for the families of hospitalized children. With project funding provided by donations, primarily through the “Festival of Trees” effort, BCRA worked hard to make every dollar count. The team implemented several value-engineering strategies that increased scope while limiting costs. A communal living room and kitchen offer a place for families to gather in support, while calming colors, cushy furniture and a host of personal amenities combine to create a place of comfort. Despite the challenges of working on an adaptive reuse, the integrity of the 1930s building remained intact and the project was completed on time and under budget.
