Kendal construction progress

Significant progress is being made on the construction/expansion project, despite the heavy precipitation of the last few months.

Four of the new cottages on Sunrise Ridge are under roof, and foundations have been poured for several more.  While completing the installation of the infrastructure, unexpected rock was discovered beneath cottages #24 and #25, adjacent to our Rebel Ridge neighbors' properties.  Our construction manager has informed us that drilling and/or some additional blasting may need to occur during the week of January 14.  Additional information will be communicated as it becomes available.

Storm Update

Kendal at Lexington staff spent this fair weather day conferring with representatives from the City of Lexington, Rockbridge County, Dominion Power, Spectrum engineers, and the Nielsen construction team to evaluate the impact of yesterday’s torrential rains on our construction project.  We have been very fortunate to have experienced limited damage. 

We expect that recommendations regarding our storm water management system to be forthcoming and electrical repair work on our campus to occur next week.  We will provide additional information as it becomes available.

Statement of Kendal at Lexington Regarding Flooding Due to Heavy Rain

October 11, 2018
3:00 pm
Due to the unusual amount of rainfall, there has been a breach of water retention mechanisms on Kendal’s construction worksite and water is flowing into some neighboring areas. Kendal at Lexington regrets this situation and is actively working with the City of Lexington, project contractors and engineers to assess and alleviate the issue.
Per requirements, sediment basins are designed to contain 134 cubic yards of water per acre of disturbed area. The water management installations were designed in excess of that requirement.  It is suspected the torrential rains we received today were of an historic nature and exceed expectations.

Kendal at Lexington’s property has been affected as well.  All hands are on deck to address the situation.

Please contact Executive Director Mina Tepper at (540) 463-1910 with questions or concerns.  Updates will be posted on the blog at
