Hill View Assisted Living Apartments
Working under a design-build delivery model, this project consisted of basic mechanical, electrical and plumbing utilities to complete the renovation of existing independent living units found in three buildings into assisted living studio apartments. Also included were the circulation and support spaces needed for staff to support the residents.
Initially, Tec performed a study of the HVAC systems, plumbing fixtures and fire detection systems. In the study, Tec engineers indicated many of the utility system shortcomings and offered thoughts for improvement. Discovering significant challenges with each system, a preliminary effort was undertaken to identify how to address these challenges will be accomplished while the facility remains fully-operational.
