Campus repositioning with a sustainable design
This existing continuing care retirement community (CCRC) consisted of numerous aging buildings. EUA created a three-phased plan for a financially self-sustaining organization that enhanced revenue and reduced expenses.
The Master Plan called for right-sizing the campus by decreasing the number of licensed nursing beds, adding a CBRF and increasing the number of assisted living apartments.
To expand the location’s service offering long-term care, dementia care and a short-term rehab facility were added to the campus. Felician Village’s decision to incorporate sustainable design resulted in lowered utility expenses and reduced exterior maintenance. Sustainable elements include:
- Radiant floor heating
- Geothermal heating/cooling
- Bioretention through rain garden areas
- High efficiency heat and water heaters
- Water wise plumbing fixtures
The phased plan ensured uninterrupted housing availability for current residents—minimizing revenue disruption and attracting new residents to the community.
