Natural light streams into rooms and public areas in senior living communities.
The name Brightview says it all. At 35 Brightview senior living communities in eight states on the East Coast, residents get a brighter view of their surroundings thanks to dedicated efforts in daylighting. Energizing natural light spills into thousands of rooms and public areas, helping create comfortable living spaces. The sunlight flows through energy-efficient windows from Harvey Building Products, Waltham, MA (harveycommercial.com), that connect residents with nature and exterior views.
“Natural light plays an important part of a well-balanced, healthy lifestyle,” said Alan Siegfried, vice president of project management for Brightview Senior Living, Baltimore (brightviewseniorliving.com). “That unique connection to the exterior world adds value and a real difference in the lives of our residents.”
When it comes to the design of the communities, the design/build team at PROCON, Manchester, NH (proconinc.com), is committed to daylight connections.
“In all our Brightview projects, our goal is to bring in as much natural light as possible to improve the health and welfare of the residents,” said Erik Anderson, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP, vice president of architecture at PROCON. “We’ve partnered with a window manufacturer that understands this desire and provides us with quality windows, reliability with no call-backs, ease of installation, and flexibility in design.”
