We provided the mechanical and electrical engineering design for the demolition, renovation and new construction of a senior living campus in Denver, CO. Our scope of work included two phases. Phase 1 involved the creation of HVAC and plumbing demolition plans of the south portion of the existing skilled nursing building. It also involved the design of a new 33,000 SF nursing and assisted living facility as well as the remodel of the existing Living Center building. Phase 2 involved the creation of HVAC and plumbing demolition plans of the north portion of the existing skilled nursing building. It also included the design of a new 96,000 SF, 71-unit Independent Living building as well as a 7,000 SF addition and 10,000 SF remodel of the existing Living Center to become the new Town Center for the community.
New 2 1/2-story skilled nursing building housing residents, kitchen, lounges, conference rooms, offi ces, physical therapy/Gym and a bathroom group, totaling approximately 85,000 SF. There will be a basement level that covers approximately half the building, that will house the Mechanical rooms. Our plans incorporated the requirements set forth in the AIA Guidelines for Design and Construction of Healthcare Facilities: Sect 8 – Nursing Facilities. This project was design assist with the GC and was HUD financed.
Proposed HVAC system for the new independent living building was a water source heat pump with cooling towers and central boilers. Individual residential controls were anticipated and designed. Alternative HVAC system would have been individual PTAC and split furnaces for the common areas. Heat/pre cooling energy recovery systems for ventilation air was designed. We provided a SD to have owners input prior to moving forward with any HVAC options.
We provided the mechanical and electrical engineering design for a 21,900 SF addition to an assisted living complex in Grand Junction, CO. The addition is a onestory, stand alone building consisting of residences, a warming kitchen, lounges, conference rooms, offices, physical therapy/gym facilities, and a bathroom group. We also provided the mechanical and electrical design for a new small kitchen and minor renovations to the existing building.
We are currently working on the mechanical and electrical engineering design for a senior housing campus in Broomfield, CO. The project consists of a three-story, 66-unit apartment building with a single story below grade parking deck and a block of twenty for sale duplex cottages. Campus amenity spaces include offices, library, fitness center, spa area, and entry lobby with great room.
We provided the designs for the Mechanical upgrade and electrical engineering design support for this unique 110,000 square foot assisted living facility. The facility was originally constructed in the 1960’s and relied heavily on steam and hydronic heating with minimal cooling in parts of the building. The upgrade included a new boiler plant, a new chiller plant, new secondary distribution, and a DDC control system.
