Independent Living, Assisted Living, & Memory Care Communities
Global Construction has specialized in senior living construction for over a decade. From independent and assisted living facilities to memory care, we have the experience and expertise to handle any senior living project from routine maintenance, CapEx projects and unit turns, to renovations or new ground-up construction.
Our seasoned professionals understand senior’s needs and that their quality of life can improve significantly when the environment is one of healing. We handle every project with care and sensitivity, partnering directly with care providers during every project to ensure we meet every need possible.
At Global Construction, it’s our priority to ensure that we provide a meaningful experience and have an empathetic approach, minimizing disturbances and keeping all areas safe and clean. We carry out each and every project as if our own friends and family may need care at that community one day.
At Global Construction we are well versed in the licensure requirements for Memory Care Communities, from pull stations and tamper-proof outlets to locking medicine cabinets. We can identify items early on in design stages that are required for Memory Care communities to avoid delays during the project and additional costs.
Global Construction practices the utmost safety and sensitivity to both residents and caregivers throughout the entire project lifecycle. We make sure to eliminate any hazards throughout the day and leave the space clean and safe at the end of each day. We are experts working in occupied Assisted Living spaces. It takes quite a few extra steps in communication, planning and logistics to do any renovation or expansion project to avoid safety hazards and lawsuits that could result in unnecessary costs.
We’re also experts in Assisted Living specific needs like nurse and medical carts and stations, and call buttons and centers.
Global Construction works closely with the design team, architects, and on-site staff in order to work seamlessly within occupied buildings causing minimal disruptions to residents and caregiver’s routines. We thoroughly vet our employees who are experienced working in senior communities and highly aware of their environments and safety protocols.

Supportive and Healing Designs for Senior Living
There are many factors that go into the design approach for senior living communities. At Global Construction we fully understand the needs of seniors in care. For example, having a balance between engaging community spaces but avoiding overstimulation, which can be especially stressful and overwhelming for patients with Alzheimer’s Disease or related dementias.
Medical settings can also appear cold or uncomfortable. At Global Construction we are experts in integrating both the necessary medical and safety equipment like handrails and slip-resistant flooring with hospitable, residential touches that help the room feel warm and comfortable as home should
Our designs not only support functionality and safety but are also psychologically supportive to both residents and their caregivers.
