Integrating Sustainable Measures within Senior and Assisted Living Establishments
While sustainable measures can be integrated through design, construction, and operations of a building, these efforts need to be tailored to the building occupants. What may work for one project type, may not work for another, and the introduction of sustainable features requires consideration of who will be using them. At an assisted living building, there should be an emphasis on occupant health and well-being, with controllability of spaces minimized. Ideally, residents will feel comfortable and healthy with a minimal need to adjust their surroundings. There are various ways to achieve this environment from a building design and maintenance perspective.
