West Fargo, North dakota
The project consists of a 52,000 SF long term care and transitional care component to Eventide’s Sheyenne Crossings West Fargo Campus for senior living communities. This
is Eventide’s first venture for long term care in North Dakota. Eventide Senior Living Communities has been a cornerstone with senior living care in Moorhead, MN since 1951.
In working with Eventide’s building committee, EAPC introduced a single story addition with a two-story connection of activity spaces and supporting elements linking three components of Independent Living, Assisted Living/Memory Care and Nursing Home. The new addition incorporates administration office suite, physical & occupational therapy, commercial & personal laundry, multi-purpose activity center, central bathing, beauty salon, concierge kitchen and transitional & nursing home wing.
As a client, Eventide wanted to provide a new living concept for senior care. The concept of “neighborhood” or “pod community” was entrenched into the design team early in the design phase. The project added two wings with four neighborhoods of 16 living units that surround a central Activity & Dining area and support spaces. Each living unit was designed to include a featured wall in the living area, roll-in shower in the toilet room, multi-task wall lighting above the bed and individual heating & cooling. 26 of the 60 living units are equipped with an integrated ceiling lift system that provides an extra level of care without sacrificing dignity for the residents.
This project is of significant size and complexity requiring EAPC’s full services: architectural, interior design, civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical engineering, and cost estimating.
