Lakewood Ranch, FL
Seated uniquely on the Island of Venice in South Florida, this community is comprised of several distinct and separate buildings that have, to various degrees, outlived their marketability. The master plan addressed these issues in a multi-phased, financially sensitive manner. Structural design was done with steel beam and column lines interior to the building and masonry bearing walls at the exterior. Roof and floor framing was done with pre-cast hollow core plank.
Snell Engineering worked closely with the design team to allow for this phasing of construction to happen seamlessly and without interruption to the fully functioning campus. The new Independent Living building is five stories total and the new Health Center is three stories.
