Assisted Living Site Development
A healthcare provider and proven leader in the industry wanted to keep up with a growing demand for various types of senior housing in the West Bloomfield Township area by building a 55-bed assisted living/memory care facility. The project, which include separate courtyards for each use, required an extensive 10-foot-high retaining wall system to protect a large, regulated wetland and a wet detention pond to control storm water runoff and enhance the natural area.
F&V provided site planning, engineering, and construction documents, permit processing, construction staking, easement exhibits, and as-built documents for the single-story, 45,000-plus square foot facility.
The courtyards provide residents with a secured outdoor space to congregate and socialize. An outdoor sitting area overlooking the wetland and pond provides a place of solace, and nature and wildlife viewing at its finest. The luxury assisted living and memory care community, located at a gateway into the community, also required extensive landscaping to enhance the community image.
