Senior Living Communities

Senior living construction is about building comfortable, community-oriented spaces with fully-integrated healthcare components that still feel like home. At Global Construction, we build for the full continuum of care. With a keen understanding of details unique to senior living, such as mobility, convenience, safety, and security. Our experienced senior living construction and renovation professionals proudly design and build spaces proven to enhance tenants’ comfort and quality of life.

From independent and assisted living facilities to memory care, we have the experience and expertise to handle any senior living project from routine maintenance, to unit turns, to renovations and CapEx projects. Our seasoned professionals understand seniors’ 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.

Featured Case Study

Refreshing the Exterior of a Dated Senior Living Facility

The owner of this senior living facility had a big problem… There was demand in the area, but their property had a number of units still available. The property had good floor plans and was priced fairly for what was being offered, but was still not attracting tenants.


There are many factors that go into the design approach for senior living communities. At Kapella Group 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 Kapella Group 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 a home should. Our designs not only support functionality and safety but are also psychologically supportive to both residents and their caregivers.

Independent Living

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.

Assisted Living

Global Construction practices the utmost safety and sensitivity to both residents and caregivers throughout the entire project lifecycle. It’s our priority to ensure that we 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.

Memory Care

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.


We understand the unique construction environment presented by senior living and healthcare facilities, and safety is our #1 priority. Our team is certified with both ICRA and ASHE for infection control and risk assessment.
