Continental Wingate-Needham

Project Overview
Continental Wingate Needham is one of many senior living projects in which KEG was a key part of the team. KEG has worked with Wingate Healthcare in the successful completion of a number of senior living projects in Massachusetts. Wingate is a family-owned business for nearly three decades, which develops and operates senior living communities that encompass a full continuum from Independent and Assisted Living through Skilled Nursing and Memory Care. Wingate Needham, which is an expansion of an existing award winning senior living community, is located on 5 acres in Needham and was developed in two phases.

KEG was responsible for all aspects of the site design and permitting for the project including rezoning, topographic and property line surveys; provided civil/site design including site layout, grading, and utilities; coordinated transportation planning; prepared all permit applications; coordinated with the Town representatives; and represented the project through the public hearing process.

The project involved local and state permitting. State permits included Mass DOT access permits. Local permits were obtained through the Planning Board, Zoning Board and conservation commission.

The project involved a complex stormwater management system because of its location as the lowest elevation within the watershed and had no gravity outlet. The system involved the design of an extensive subsurface system that need to be located between the building, which included subsurface parking, and the existing railroad right of way.
