Cascadia Senior Living and Development
Gardening. Walking. Enjoying the view from a bench or a rocking chair. With each community it creates, this is part of Cascadia’s vision for their residents.
Our team eagerly embraced this vision as they transformed the nearly eight acres into a welcoming campus with our civil engineering and landscape architecture designs for this memory care and assisted living community.
Our civil engineering team coordinated with the architects to tackle grading, drainage, water and sewer, sedimentation and erosion, and frontage improvements. The results are both functional and aesthetically appealing, even for the required 14,000-cubic-yard large infiltration pond, which is bigger than either of the buildings!
With careful consideration given to community members’ limited mobility and cognitive challenges, our landscape architecture team designed a variety of outdoor spaces, including large and small patios, a raised vegetable garden, a putting green, and a looped path for those who easily lose their way while walking. Both shaded areas, and spots to soak in the sun, are sprinkled throughout community, incorporating traditional flowers like roses and lilacs.
The result is a space that welcomes and supports residents, providing them with comfort and enjoyment regardless of the season.
“It’s a joy to create outdoor spaces for people with limited mobility that feel comfortable and inviting, and are full of a variety of flowers, foliage, and fountains. We designed Fieldstone’s gardens and courtyards so they draw people in, encourage them to interact, and hopefully help them re-experience good memories.”
