Carolina Commercial Contractors has been awarded a contract for a 2,500 square foot expansion to the TLC Home on Hawkins Avenue, The Rant has learned.

Work has recently begun on the expansion to the facility, which serves adults with special needs. The TLC (Tender Loving Care) Home began in 1987 and is a 10 bed, nonprofit intermediate care facility. The expansion will add 10 additional bedrooms, new office space and allow for needed physical therapy space in the facility. TLC provides therapeutic, residential, rehabilitative services, and 24 hour care.

“Site work has already begun,” said Dave Richardson, a project manager for Carolina Commercial Contractors. “We anticipate TLC residents and staff being able to move into their new spaces in May of 2020.”

TLC Home Executive Director Rita Oglesbee said the organization is excited about the new addition.

“It will really make life nicer for our residents and staff every single day,” she said. “It will give everyone some breathing room in a space that was originally designed for children but that now services fully grown adults.”

Carolina Commercial Contractors is a Sanford-based, family-owned commercial construction company that began in 1998. Recent projects include South Park Village Apartments off N.C. 87 in Sanford, as well as a new building for Wilkinson Cadillac Chevrolet Buick GMC in the same area.

“We are always happy to be doing work in our own community, and TLC is a special place that does great work for its residents every day,” Richardson said.
