California Veterans Home

Residence for Veterans | Geriatric, Dementia & Memory Care | 239,000 SF | Design-Build | 2012

FRESNO, CALIFORNIA, USA  The KMD/Hensel Phelps team undertook an unprecedented challenge and opportunity to create a welcoming, stable and lasting community to help Veterans maintain individual identities and exercise personal preference, choice and independent initiatives. The new campus evokes the essence of individual homes clustered into neighborhoods and unified by a Central Services Building. The California Department of Veterans Affairs and the State of California defined the Critical Success Factors for the California Veterans Home-Fresno – they exhorted the design-build team to create an environment reflecting the comforts of home, providing the highest quality of life with dignity and positive self-image, and by the nature of its design, nurturing the human spirit of the members and staff.
