These are two Healthcare projects in which I participated in the project teams with a staff Architect serving as project manager. On both of these projects I was responsible for the façade design using floor plans designed by the project manager. I also designed and created all of the sections, detailing, and calculated all of the wood structural members. I provided a substantial amount of the code research using IBC, NFPA 101, and Dept. of Health and Hospital Regulations as guides.
Alexander Milne Home for Women
The Alexander Milne Home for Women was founded 160 year ago in New Orleans and exists today as a non-profit foundation for developmentally challenged ladies. Their original home was destroyed during Hurricane Katrina and the ladies were temporarily sheltered in Laurel, Ms. This new building and surrounding grounds was to be their new home located in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana near the town of Waldheim. This project included a 70 Bed Assisted Living Facility at 44,500 square feet on 17 acres of land.
