Flexibility, ease, and cost predictability

Keep communities competitive by renovating aging assets. This is especially critical when newly built competitors are drawing market share.

Renovation budgets are not often as robust as new construction budgets, so spending must be strategic and controlled.

StudioSIX5 has created a unique approach to renovations that benefits owners, operators, and property managers of single or multiple communities.

The Design Platform and it’s perfect for refreshing single communities, but its real power is seen when renovating multiple communities in a portfolio.


StudioSIX5’s Design Platform offers flexibility and cost predictability for single or multiple-asset renovation

Here’s how the Design Platform works

Based on our analysis, designs are produced according to the renovation needs of the community. From there, the design process follows a traditional path.

Renovations for multiple assets require a more tactical approach.

After analyzing each community, the Design Team creates a set of different, yet related designs. Upon approval, the finishes in each design package are priced by our Procurement Department using StudioSIX5’s deep volume discounts.

Once designs are priced, the appropriate design package is selected for each community and benefits of StudioSIX5’s Design Platform become obvious.

Because every community’s needs are different, the scope of renovations is easily scaled. Some communities need more, some less. And because we already know the pricing, costs by community are predictable.

Elements from the design packages can even be mixed and matched with budgetary clarity.
