New Senior/Memory Care Center
IMEG provided mechanical, electrical, technology, and structural engineering design services, along with construction administration, for the new 175,000-sf senior living/memory care center at Clarendale of Schererville. The new residential living facility includes 177 units; 85 independent living units, 38 assisted living units, and 54 memory care units. The project also includes 29 enclosed parking stalls. The residential community includes dining areas, a bistro, bar, lounge, and multipurpose room, as well as outdoor patios and courtyards.
The IMEG design team provided an MEP conceptual design package that included device count/locations, general finish level MEP specifications such as fixture types, and sizing of major MEP equipment.
IMEG also provided full service structural engineering design for the project. The building is wood framed construction with steel framing over the open areas on the ground floor. The lateral system is comprised of wood shear walls. Interesting structural elements include the tower near the front entry with two-story spaces and the multipurpose area on the third floor with roof trusses shaped to create a sloping ceiling.
