Hingham, MA – Callahan Construction Managers (Callahan) announces the completion of The Residence at Penniman Hill, a new assisted living community in Hingham.
The development is owned and operated by LCB Senior Living, LLC, which operates throughout New England. The Architectural Team, Inc. (TAT) served as the design firm. This is Callahan’s fourth project with LCB Senior Living.
The Residence at Penniman Hill offers 90 assisted living and memory care living apartments for local seniors. The 90,000sf, 3-story building includes studio, one, and two-bedroom units. It also offers a variety of amenities, including an activity room, beauty salon, cafe and bistro, exterior planting areas and a memory garden.
The property is located around the corner from the Derby Street Shoppes in Hingham which also provides convenient access to shops and restaurants for residents and guests.
A variety of unique construction elements were implemented on the project. The buildings’ foundation was not typically used in residential construction, as the team was required to account for the soil on-site. Instead, a geopier system was incorporated, which transferred the load of foundation footing into reinforced piers. Construction also included the use of light gauge structural steel, instead of traditional wood-frame construction.
Two distinct resident areas exist on the property: The first floor of the development houses residents with memory impairments and it also includes common areas and dining spaces. The second and third floors consist of assisted living residents as well as additional common areas, dining space and a commercial kitchen.
