Diamond House is a two storey wood frame senior care home constructed by Ledcor Design-Build (Sask) for Golden Health Care. This 87,550 sf “aging in place” senior living facility offers 100 suites and four levels of nursing care, as well as Alzheimer’s and dementia resident care, and palliative care.
Golden Heath Care owns and operates seven similar homes across the province. Our owner’s design needs dictated that every suite and support room have different finishes so memory-care residents can more easily identify the rooms.
Interior finishes include 114 paint colours, 38 flooring products and colours, and 34 cabinet laminate products and colours. The exterior envelope consists of EIFS coating, asphalt shingles, triple-glazed PVC windows, and decorative PVC columns – all designed to create a familiar and comfortable home environment for residents.
Despite several design challenges that added time to the schedule, the project completed four weeks ahead of the original completion date.
