As with every life experience, our senior living projects often teach us great lessons. We enjoy the challenge of building homes that people can retire to, where they can settle down with all of the securities and comforts they deserve. As one of our main areas of focus, we’re proud to have built some of the finest assisted living and independent living facilities in the southeast.
Canterfield at Forsyth Senior Living Campus
OPPORTUNITY Canterfield at Forsyth is one of our flagship Senior Living projects—one that exemplifies our attention to detail and thoughtful consideration of clients and their future residents. We worked closely with the owners to bring their vision of a well-appointed senior living campus to life, complete with a modern assisted living community with memory care wing, several upscale independent living ranches and a four story independent living apartment community.e corner from the Ritz. We knew we had location on our side and needed a look and feel that would compliment our upscale neighbors and appeal to this mature market.
DESIGN PROCESS In designing a senior living campus, we had to consider what each component needs to thrive on its own, as well as how all the separate components come together to create a beautiful, seamless feeling. Forsyth is one of the wealthiest counties in the country, so we built this community to evoke a country-club feeling, no matter if you’re in the comfortable memory care floor or the independent living resort-style pool. The idea behind all of our senior living campuses is that residents can live abundantly, age in place and get the care they need, when they need it.
LESSON LEARNED Canterfield was a three-phase project that began with the assisted living building, and was completed with the independent living apartments. It was very important to us that we kept the buildings separate, while keeping them similar in style and function and that we were able to design a campus with all the bells and whistles: upscale dining facilities, wood liquor lockers, lush garden landscapes, art rooms and top-notch fitness facilities—thoughtful amenities for keeping residents happy, active and young at heart.
