Groom Construction was contracted to build the new Beech Street Center in Belmont, Massachusetts. This environmentally-friendly 19,000 square foot public senior center was the first LEED-certified public building in Belmont.

“We’re very excited and thankful to Groom Construction for making this summit possible,” said Upendra Mishra, publisher of Boston Real Estate Times. “For about 40 years, Groom Construction has been delivering beautiful and challenging projects in a wide variety of settings.”

Groom is headquartered just north of Boston in historic Salem, MA and boasts a company of over 180 dedicated and talented employees all focused on delivering the same personalized approach distinctive to Groom since its inception in 1979.

The summit will also honor Senior Living Residences CEO Robert Larkin for his outstanding contributions to the industry. In addition to Mr. Larkin, other speakers at the summit are: James Coughlin, Co-Founder and CEO, Northbridge Companies;  Michael Gordon, Senior Vice President of Acquisitions and Development, EPOCH Senior Living; and Brian Doherty, President and CEO, Massachusetts Assisted Living Association.

The summit will focus on challenges and opportunities face by the Senior and Assisted Living industry in the face of the current pandemic, including rising healthcare costs, an ageing population, increased longevity and the state of demand for senior living facilities.

Other topics include: How does 2021 and beyond look like for assisted living, senior housing and health rehabilitation centers in the context of the current pandemic? Despite the demand, why has occupancy fell or remained flat and why have construction starts been lower than expected in recent years? How has COVID-19 affected the industry and what should the industry do to deal with future pandemics?
