Rockville Partners with Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc.

ROCKVILLE, Md. – The Village at Rockville (TVAR), A National Lutheran Community, has partnered with Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc. of Winchester, Va. to complete the remainder of the continuing care retirement community’s renovations that include all private rooms (featuring 94 extended nursing care rooms, 66 short-term rehabilitation rooms and 50 assisted living and memory care suites). Construction costs are approximately $23 million and will also include office and common areas, along with dining spaces, taking three years to complete.

Shockey, one of Virginia’s largest general contracting and construction management companies with 116 years of experience, has also partnered with TVAR’s sister community, The Village at Orchard Ridge (TVOR) in Winchester, Va. Phase 1 of TVOR’s construction is well underway, including 178 maintenance-free independent living cottage homes and apartments with home-based services, memory care, assisted living and nursing care options. It is anticipated that Phase 1 will be completed by Spring 2013.

“From the start, the partnership with Shockey at Rockville was a good fit because they had an existing relationship with The Village at Orchard Ridge,” Frank McGovern, TVAR’s Executive Director said. “Tactically they have been disciplined in their approach and we are happy with how well they are progressing through Phase 2 of TVAR’s renovations.”

“Shockey has had such a great relationship with TVOR, we consider it a privilege to get to work together in Rockville, too,” said Jeff Boehm, Shockey’s Vice President.

Both construction projects for TVOR and TVAR will incorporate various elements of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), ranging from LEED-certified cottage homes at TVOR to sustainable design features at TVAR.

TVAR received its tax-exempt bond financing on February 23, 2012 for up to $22 million. The City of Rockville is serving as the conduit issuer of the bonds that will fund a portion of the renovations, while the financing is provided by a private investor. Not only does this transaction benefit TVAR, but The City of Rockville as well, as the municipality will receive a percentage of revenue based on the bonds issued.
