Eden Care Communities – Long Term Care Conceptual Design

A full Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) project, currently with its validation phase complete, the ECC Village project provides 288 Long Term Care (LTC) beds, replacing 62 Regina Lutheran Home beds and creating 226 replacement beds, 58 supportive housing suites, a primary care clinic, adult day program, pharmacy and communal village program spaces including chapel, hair salon and bistro.

Using business case and LEAN measurement tools, the design team worked with the owner and contractor teams to understand what was of value to residents. The final design sought to create a residential community that would work for residents and the staff who care for them, minimizing wasted effort, with layouts that reduce staff travel distance and provide long term flexibility for a changing field. With the good of designing a space that any of the design team would want to live in themselves or move a parent into; the design creates a home-like environment with access to natural light and community space for all.
