We knew we needed to bring her back to Minneapolis,” said Tim Miller, Principal and Vice President of Sales for Henricksen. Henricksen has partnered with H Contract and Lou Reid Associates, Interface, and Fabricut on this program. Each brings a unique product offering relevant to senior living projects throughout Minnesota and across the country. “We’ve chosen to partner with H Contract and Lou Reid, Interface, and Fabricut on these professional development opportunities featuring Jane because they are some of our closest partners across the furniture, flooring, and textiles categories when working on senior living projects.” Henricksen’s senior living specialist and Senior Account Executive Michele Hazleton explains, “We are looking to continue to grow and evolve as a leader of senior living procurement and these key vendors are an important part of that growth.” Designers, developers, and operators are invited to attend these sessions hosted at the Tractoworks Building in Minneapolis: Elements of Senior Living: Lessons Learned – Establishing a strong foundation outlining the specification requirements for senior living, this workshop will detail what makes designing and specifying for senior living communities unique.
