Merrill Gardens at Carolina Park
Mount Pleasant, South Carolina
Nestled within the sprawling 1,700-acre Carolina Park community is the Merrill Gardens at Carolina Park retirement and memory care facility. The first phase of this development is complete with additional phases planned. The pool house is currently in construction. The 3-story primary building is constructed of dimensional lumber and houses 132 assisted living units and 12 memory care units.
All buildings are constructed as slab on grade. Fiber cement lap with fiber cement trim is the primary cladding on the buildings. Asphalt shingles cover sloped portions of the roof, and balconies feature pitched roofs. Roll-up doors and storefront glazing is included at the pool house.
JRS provided full design services for this project, including production of enclosure details, collaboration with the design and construction teams, site visits for mock-ups, and regular progress reviews and submittal and RFI reviews.
