Completed 2016

Located in Towson, Md., the Blakehurst Retirement Community is a 40-acre senior living campus providing a variety of services from private residences to assisted living and healthcare.  For this expansion project, CEI provided structural designs for the construction of a new, 41,000-SF addition including a second-floor Assisted Living Facility above a ground-floor Resident Health Living Center.  The two levels are connected by a single-story, 6,800-SF memory care wing addition onto the existing Nursing Center.  

The building’s lower level contains mechanical rooms, fitness suites, and office areas, while the upper level consists of senior housing and support.  An enclosed walkway connects the expansion to existing facilities.  The new addition is founded on shallow spread footings with cast-in-place reinforced concrete retaining walls along a portion of the lower level that is below-grade.  Our team prepared designs for steel framing with pre-engineered wood trusses, as well as exterior walls consisting of brick veneer and wood siding.  CEI also provided design services for the preliminary phase of the project, completed in 2012, which included renovations and a 1,350-SF addition to the Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy facilities, as well as interior renovations to the Nursing Center.
