Elite Care at Sylvan ParkThe Elite Care at Sylvan Park Elder Care Facility is a 48-unit elder care facility that was constructed on a 2.67 acre site consisting of two, two-building complexes. Each 12-unit, three-story building in the complex is connected with a building link—each building link consists of a ground level open area which has a vehicle circulation area and a covered gathering area; the second level link consists of a common lounge; and the third level link has a connecting hallway between buildings. The total square footage for these two building complexes is 53,312 sf. There is also a 1,500 sf greenhouse structure on the site as well as an existing 1,140 sf residence that will be renovated at a later date to serve as a Community Greeter Residence.
The project incorporates many “Green” building concepts, such as rainwater collection, zero migration site drainage, superior interior environment, and energy management systems.
The project was designed to utilize both modular unit construction as well as conventional construction methods. With the modular component, on-site construction time was dramatically reduced.
