Sunny Vista Skilled Nursing

Project Description 

Sunny Vista Skilled Nursing Facility is a 2-story, 116-room senior living facility located across the street from the main Sunny Vista Living Center campus. The new 89,000 sf facility, which is adjacent to a large community park in central Colorado Springs, offers private rooms for short-term rehabilitation or long-term custodial care.

The main level features a dramatic two-story living room trimmed with ornate hand railings and a large fireplace. Other amenities include living rooms, communal dining, a therapy room and gym, chapel, salon, conference room, three elevated outdoor patios, a multi-purpose room, 270-gallon aquarium, and aviary.

The garden-level basement houses a commercial kitchen, dietary/nurse/social worker offices, employee lounge/locker room, mechanical/electrical rooms, and oxygen storage space. The laundry room features an Aquawing Ozone laundry system, which uses a state-of-the-art ozone cleaning process that reduces water and energy consumption.

Sunny Vista's structure consists of metal-stud framing with a Hambro floor system, manufactured stone and stucco skin, concrete tile and standing seam metal roof. An underground garage with a structural concrete lid sits under one of the unit wings. The mechanical system uses heat pumps for heating and cooling. The facility is serviced by a three-stop elevator.
