Project Details

This project included design and construction of a three-story, 75,000 SF addition to an existing assisted living facility and nursing home.  The addition houses 41-apartments and dining, social, and wellness areas.  Site design included a drop-off loop at the front entrance and a parking facility that is partially covered by the building.  Rain gardens and a butterfly garden control stormwater runoff and provide amenities to the site.

Keller Engineers’ Structural team designed the facility’s structural elements.  The structure is wood frame including wood roof trusses, floor trusses, and some steel framing. The second floor is a steel frame due to the high floor to floor heights with wood truss infill.  The area above the garage is steel framing with metal deck and concrete slab for a fire rating. This project’s first floor is concrete slab on grade. The foundations are shallow, column spread, and continuous wall footings supporting concrete piers and masonry foundation walls.  A parking facility, partially covered by the building, was also designed.


For over 20 years I have had the privilege of working with Keller Engineers and their staff of surveyors, and civil and structural engineers on over $150 million worth of work. During these project relationships and partnering opportunities, my architectural teams have received nothing but premium professional services and courtesy towards my own staff, clients and prospective clients with stellar attention given to building and site details, client responsiveness and peer respect. I look forward to many more teaming opportunities and urge any other architectural firms, municipalities or clients who have not worked with Keller Engineers to do so. You will be pleasantly surprised! Richard L. Karcher, AIA, NCARB
