Tidewell Hospice stands as pillar in the communities it supports. It’s mission of “providing care, comfort and compassion” relies heavily on the design of their facilities for both the sake of their residents as well as staff. WBRC Architects also wanted to provide a higher level of safety to the building occupants so design of the facility was conducted in a manner that will allow a shelter-in-place option at even a Category 5 hurricane.
Construction of the facility was done utilizing masonry walls and light gauge metal trusses. In an effort to allow for future expansions, a 3,600 square foot space was provided as a “shell” that will be built-out later as Tidewell’s needs change.
