The Lutheran Village at Miller's Grant
Ellicott City, MD
commitment to long-range planning
This project took about ten years to develop, and Harkins was there for a good part of that time, helping the vision shared by all the stakeholders to become a reality. Built on 50 acres of land donated by the Charles E. Miller family to Carroll Lutheran Village, Miller’s Grant is a sprawling faith-based not-for-profit continuing care retirement community.
Harkins’ contract included infrastructure development of the site and construction of 205 independent living apartments and two guest suites in four buildings, a 27-unit high care building with assisted living and skilled nursing, and a 30,000 gsf community center with dining venues, a fitness center, and other amenities. All six buildings are connected, with the community center at the hub. 24 detached homes and six duplexes on the outside of the loop road were built by Williamsburg Homes.
How Harkins Made a Difference
- Harkins’ extensive CCRC experience was especially valuable in coordinating details and trades where different building code classifications meet. Residential Building C is a five-story building with a three-hour separation between the terrace level (concrete plank, structural steel, concrete and masonry bearing walls) and the four stories of wood frame construction above. High Care is a non-combustible structure of metal stud, concrete plank, and structural steel, with fire retardant treated wood in the roof structure.
The professionalism, dedication, and commitment to work as a team in constructing the Lutheran Village at Miller’s Grant were not only promised when Harkins Builders were interviewed, they were delivered during both the preconstruction and construction phases of our project.
