Montecedro Senior Living Community
The Montecedro Senior Living Community spans 10 acres and boasts a total area of 331,200 square feet. This retirement community redefines senior housing with its 132 independent living units, 20 memory care assisted living spaces, and 4 villa-style senior living accommodations. Residents enjoy various amenities, including full kitchen and dining areas, a cocktail lounge, art studio, movie theatre, business center, library, performing arts/multipurpose auditorium, fitness center, and a 90,000-square-foot subterranean cast-in-place garage and pool.
In an effort to prioritize environmental sustainability, AJK approached the electrical design of the community with a focus on minimizing its environmental impact. The exterior lighting adheres to ‘dark sky’ compliance standards and Title 24 regulations to reduce light pollution. Energy-efficient fixtures were strategically employed, surpassing California Energy Code requirements by operating 12 percent more efficiently. Additionally, a 750kW Emergency Standby Generator was installed to ensure uninterrupted operation of essential services. The utilization of 3D BIM Coordination played a pivotal role in the successful completion of this project.
