Lac Courte Oreilles

Assisted Living Facility, Nursing Home and Community Health Center

Wendel provided Pre-Design Study services for the Lac Courte Oreilles Tribe for a proposed Assisted Living Facility, Nursing Home, and Community Health Center. Working closely with Tribe Elders and Community Health Center staff, Wendel developed a design concept that incorporated all the desired building program as well as building materials and system concepts that will provide long-term durability and sustainability. The project consists of three facilities; a 20,000 square foot, 12-unit Assisted Living Facility, a 17,000 square foot, 12-bed Nursing Home, and a 48,000 square foot Community Health Center. The three facilities are connected by a glazed corridor system forming a central courtyard which allows patients, visitors and staff to move from one facility to another without exiting the building.
