Our Commitment to Sustainability

We at William Brummett Architects strive to infuse green building and design practices into every project. Whether the goal is to create a LEED certified project, or to enhance a design with client-specific green design strategies for a healthier and more productive setting, we utilize the sustainability guidelines established by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). Our commitment to environmentally responsible buildings and interiors benefits the natural environment, our clients, and the occupants of our spaces. Our green building and design practices can conserve natural resources, reduce operating costs, maximize life-cycle economic performance, promote staff satisfaction and productivity, and contribute to resident comfort, health, and overall quality of life.

Innovations in Senior Independent Housing

Our programming, consulting and design work creating state of the art senior independent housing is directed by the evolving needs and desires of the coming wave of “boomers.” Our designs not only allow residents to age in-place, but provide the amenities and spaces to live well. Places that support continued growth and learning, brain fitness, holistic wellness, art, music and movement programs, connections to a broader community, and integration in the community are incorporated in our progressive and informed approach.

Design for people with Dementia

Our research has indicated that approximately 40% of people over the age of 80, and 60% of people over the age of 90 have some form of dementia. This fact has tremendous impact on designing environments well for the aging. In some instances our clients create environments built specifically for mid and later stages of dementia. In others, even senior independent settings, wise clients who wish to comprehensively support aging in-place consider dementia one issue many of their residents may some day face.

Our research has also yielded tools we use to create environments that support the needs and issues those with dementia often have.

Design for Aging in-place

We know from our resident interviews that the ability to age in-place is the top priority for seniors. Our research has informed us about the common conditions and issues that often challenge seniors, and if not considered carefully during design, can lead to a resident needing to seek a higher level of care. Supporting aging in-place not only responds to the needs of residents, but can often result in a lower resident turn-over rate and higher sustained occupancy.

To support aging in-place, we thoughtfully consider every design aspect and detail for its ability to support a host of physical and cognitive challenges that residents may develop.
