Flat Rock Manor Adult Foster Care

300 N. Elba Road, Lapeer, MI

In 2012 CHMP was retained to design the conversion of a former 26,600 s.f. elementary school building into a 24 bed adult foster care home.  Located in a country setting, the project objectives included changing the school appearance to a homelike environment.  Our solution included the addition of shingled roofs, bedroom windows, gable end entryways, and stone veneer.  Similar challenge for the building interior was to soften the appearance with drop ceiling and soffits, floor material changes, and wall coverings/chair-railings to create a homelike environment.  The client was equally concerned over the durability of the interior finishes which lead to the selection of wall protection systems and durable door hardware.  Door alarm notifications are also planned to keep residents safe.
