The Health Services Center (HSC), a 35-bed residential nursing unit for seniors, sits on the garden level of the Knollwood Military Retirement Residence. Delta designed the last renovation of the staff and common areas of this 22,000 sf unit in 1990. The firm is now working with Knollwood on a complete renovation of the HSC to increase the number of private rooms and modernize the unit to provide the residents with a more home-like environment.
The renovation also includes an expansions that includes activities areas, staff and administrative space, and nourishment areas. Views to the garden areas are available from each resident’s room and activity area. The project is being planned to achieve LEED certification.
Delta is also assisting Knollwood in planning the implementation of a new automatic fire suppression system for the entire 380,000 sf facility.
