Merrill Gardens at Columbia

Columbia, South Carolina

Merrill Gardens at Columbia is a new assisted living and memory care facility located in the busy BullStreet District development. The multi-wing building consists of light-gauge metal framing, with areas of post-tension concrete slabs and below-grade structure. Residents are encouraged to socialize in the cozy courtyards and rooftop decks.

Centered in the heart of downtown Columbia, the building’s modern design reflects the energetic feel of the surrounding area. The veneer brick, fiber cement panel, and standing seam metal roofing come together to create a mansard that offers a classic yet sleek look.

JRS provided full design and consultation services for this project, including production of enclosure details in collaboration with the architect and construction teams. We provided value in guiding the approach to achieving the mansard element at the upper floor. During construction we were a resource to the contractor for meeting the project goals, and attended the site for mock-ups and regular review of ongoing work.
