CHARTER HOUSE ASSISTING LIVING CARE FACILITY ADDITION

This project involved the addition of a four story assisted-living care facility to the Mayo Clinic Charter House complex in Rochester, MN. The existing facility consisted of a high-rise independent-living apartment tower, a mid-rise nursing-care facility, and an above ground parking structure.

In addition to the 45 new assisted-living care rooms, were multiple common living room spaces, a library, and support service rooms. The first two floors of the existing independent-living tower were also renovated, and incorporated new meeting rooms, an expanded chapel, remodeled common areas, and offices.

Sustainable features include: updated HVAC systems, a high-performance building envelope, and the use of sustainable materials such as natural limestones and granites.

This two year project was undertaken with Dale Tremain of the Nelson-Tremain Partnership.
