Phoebe Berks Community


Project Description

Phoebe Berks Village and Health Center is an established continuing care retirement community located in Berks County, Pa. The site extends into both Wernersville Borough and Lower Heidelberg Township. This client sought to complete the remaining development capacity of their land while improving some existing facilities. Our staff assisted in the site planning of the expansion and developed the engineering for all agency approvals and construction documents.

The new facilities included single and twin cottages as well as independent living apartments. The main building also included a new health center expansion and a new facility for dementia care with 24 beds. Additionally, a secure outdoor garden was designed for patients to enjoy. (The site was designed as an integrated campus of housing types providing specialized care suited to the aging process.) Special care was taken to design for an enriched living experience for all of Phoebe’s residents.
