Veitas and Veitas Engineers Begins New Assisted Living Project
March 26, 2014
Plymouth, MA – Veitas and Veitas Engineers of Braintree is partnering with The Architectural Team and Callahan Inc. to provide structural design for Laurelwood at the Pinehills in Plymouth. The new 77,000sf, two- and three-story community houses 80 residences offering assisted, independent and memory care living options. A 10,000sf open air parking garage will be housed beneath the left wing of the structure. The project is expected to be completed in Spring 2015.
Veitas and Veitas recently completed structural design for the Golden Pond Assisted Living expansion in Hopkinton. The 35,000sf, four-story addition nearly doubled the facility’s size, providing additional housing and common areas for residents. The structural design took advantage of a cost-effective wood frame. Steel girders were used at the second floor to meet the first floor’s large open space requirements.
“We have recently seen an increase in the construction and expansion of assisted living communities. Assisted living communities are now featuring hospitality-like elements and we are excited to provide cost-effective, yet innovative structural design solutions for current and future projects.” said Rimas Veitas, Principal at Veitas and Veitas Engineers.
