The Pursuit of Purpose: Live Life Fully

Partnering with King-Bruwaert House to raise awareness, increase occupancy and launch an expansion of state-of-the-art inventory.

With more than 20 years of experience we can deliver the best product design.

When King-Bruwaert House chose to do a major repositioning that included the addition of 44 new independent living apartment residences and a brand-new healthcare center offering private rooms, they knew they needed a partner who could help preserve their rich traditions. Our initial assessment and research counsel ensured that the correct product was being developed to meet the needs of their prospective residents, while simultaneously reinventing their identity  to reflect their historic yet evolving community.
