Artis Senior Living expanded its memory-care-community presence in Pennsylvania with a third location in Bethel Park. To help the 34,000-square-foot Artis Senior Living of South Hills facility become reality, raSmith joined the design team. Staff in multiple raSmith offices combined their diversified experience and skills in civil and structural engineering, surveying and landscape architecture for this project.
The site design engineers faced a challenge because, although only six acres, the site had 80 feet of grade differential to work through. Now constructed, the single-story, 72-suite facility offers residents four neighborhoods with customized themes for a cozy, familiar atmosphere. Its Town Center is a beacon for social activity and wellness, featuring an arts studio, community gathering area, beauty salon/barbershop and private courtyard. The campus’ grand opening was celebrated in early 2018.
