Catholic Eldercare Church Renovation

Minneapolis, MN - Catholic Eldercare Church Renovation | St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Eldercare reached out to Prime General Contractors to refinish and modify their existing wood pews to their original finish, add new pew kneelers, and remove and replace the flooring at their St. Anthony of Padua Chapel. The chapel is attached to the Catholic Eldercare facility.

The pews were completely disassembled, restored to original stain color, reassembled and reinstalled. A number of pews were trimmed in size and modified to accommodate wheel chair accessibility for complete family.


The existing Vinyl Asbestos Tile (VAT) contained asbestos which required full abatement. Prime installed new carpeting over the existing wood slat floor. Prime also installed new tile flooring in the public restrooms.


The project was completed on time and within budget. This is the third project Prime General Contractors has successfully completed for Catholic Eldercare.


Next the ceiling needed repairs, and fast. Eight months after completion of the flooring and pew finishes Catholic Eldercare reached out to Prime General Contractors to help repair their existing structural plaster ceiling. The ceiling had begun to separate from the existing roof structure.


On a Saturday, Prime General Contractors mobilized an emergency scaffold crew to help stabilize the ceiling. Our team removed the plaster ceiling that had separated from the structure and replaced it with light weight gypsum board.


We worked with a local structural engineer to identify the issue and advise during the construction. The project was completed in 6 weeks. Prime General Contractors appreciates the trust that Catholic Eldercare has placed with us and our partners.

Trinity Care Center

Prime General Contractors LLC was invited to be a part of the construction team for the Trinity Care Center remodel and building addition.

The first phase construction included performing an interior remodel of the existing nursing home which dates back to 1965 and also adding on 3 building additions during this time which include a new front entrance vestibule/canopy, utility addition, and commercial kitchen addition. This work was completed while the building was occupied.

After Phase I was complete, Prime demolished an existing hospital that was over 40,000 sf. The existing concrete within the hospital was crushed on site and reused as base for the new pod addition. 

Overall there are 4 building additions totaling 36,540 SF, and an interior remodel of the existing facility totaling 13,672 SF.


Sholom Home of St. Paul, MN

Tremain Partnership implemented a remodel of the
Shirley Chapman Sholom Home East, located in St. Paul, Minn., as a means to add nursing beds. The goal of this renovation was to provide added care for the residents that call the Shirley Chapman facility home.

The project involved remodeling of the second, third and fourth floors of the post-tensioned concrete building. Sixteen new nursing beds were added, providing four additional short-term care units to the 2nd floor, four additional long-term units on the 3rd floor and eight long-term units on the 4th floor. The challenge on this project was meeting the strict requirements outlined by the Minnesota Department of Health, while precisely following the Minnesota Building Code Standards and the State of Minnesota Fire Marshall.


The renovations took place while the facility was still occupied and no more than five beds could be decommissioned at a time. This required four phases of construction. Working with the architect and design team members, Prime General Contractors LLC ensured minimal renovation disturbances and exercised the highest safety and quality standards for customer satisfaction.


Keeping with their core values, Prime General Contractors LLC developed lasting relationships with the owner, residents and design team members.
