B&H utilized shallow foundations to support the framing for the Assisted Living and the Memory Care buildings. For the assisted living building, a steel frame with composite steel beams and composite slabs were utilized for the floor construction along with a steel frame with cold formed metal trusses to construct and form the roof structure. Mechanical equipment was located and hidden in roof well. The building façade consisted of brick with backup cold formed metal framing.
