Brightview Rockville provides 66 assisted living units and 23 Alzheimer units and incorporates a large amount of amenity space, including multiple dining rooms, rooftop terraces, activity rooms, a salon, fitness center, and public laundry rooms. Site amenities include an Alzheimer’s garden and pergola. The building includes a 3,000 sf cellar housing the main commercial kitchen, locker rooms, utility rooms, and emergency generator. A freight elevator provides access.
The project and site were designed around a large Caliper Elm tree, which was preserved. Also, a large amount of pervious concrete paving was used at parking areas to meet updated storm water management regulations. There is a grease interceptor and sewage pump nearly 20 feet below grade. The grease interceptor was installed near the only access road to the site, complicating the upfront site work sequencing.
