The View at Johnson Creek Assisted Living and Memory Care Facility opened its doors in March 2020, after a two-year planning and construction process. Accessing the site is difficult, with narrow roads and residential areas creating issues of both access and safety. The hilltop location is also prone to high winds, and large machinery had to be maneuvered carefully on steep ground. Before construction could take place, the massive foundation of the original building had to be excavated, removed, and the soil improved and compacted.
The architectural design utilizes the unique topography to perfection, as the sprawling, 6-wing design assures great views from every room in the facility. The decision-making regarding this issue saved weeks on the construction schedule, allowing the client to develop and maintain their planned occupancy and move-in schedules.
