COH Senior Facility

City of Henderson Senior Facility rendered site plan

The Senior Facility is located at Heritage Park in Henderson, NV.  This environmentally sustainable project has achieved LEED Gold certification.  The landscape was designed with native and adaptive plant material to reduce water use on site.  Low flow drip irrigation further reduces the water needs of the site.  The parking lot incorporates shade trees to help reduce the heat island effect and pervious pavement in the parking stalls to promote rainwater infiltration and groundwater recharge.  Custom benches were designed to match the gabion walls of the building to provide connection between the interior and  exterior spaces.  Also included on the site is a bocce court and demonstration garden.
