An environmentally-friendly place to relax
We provided full architectural and engineering services for the redevelopment of the Woodland's site in New Westminster. The vision was to create a sustainable housing community promoting wellness and diversity that highlighted emerging concepts in the delivery of continuing care and assisted living.
This senior care center is combined with a health clinic and daycare facility. The project consisted of one level of below grade parking, main floor clinic and daycare facility, and three upper levels of independent living units. The below grade, first, and second floor structure consists of cast-in-place concrete with the remaining upper floor and roof structures consisting of timber framing. This project is one of the first of its kind in British Columbia to achieve LEED® Certification. The sustainable design features include a thermal labyrinth, high-efficiency boilers, fresh air ducted directly into the assisted living suites with continuous bathroom exhaust routed to back rooftop HRV units, over-size opening windows with low-e argon-filled glazing units, solar shading, reduced construction waste, low VOC paints & adhesives.
With resident comfort and ample daylight as key design objectives, we created a safe environment where the elderly can truly be safe and happy.
