The River Highlands project included extensive alterations, additions, and renovations to an existing assisted living and specialty care community. Renovations encompassed over 100,000 square feet on the three (3) floor, 106 bed facility. A portion of the facility was converted to specialty care. The conversion included egress issues, security, emergency call system, automatic locks, and upgrade to building access systems. Other upgrades included bringing the fire alarm and fire sprinkler systems up to current ADPH requirements and life safety codes. Work also included extensive exterior façade repairs, window replacements, paint, and drive-thru upgrades. The interior courtyard was also completely reworked with new landscaping and hardscape including a water feature that sets the environment for the courtyard. A 2,000 square foot lobby addition added natural light throughout the entire lobby and activity areas.
