About the Project

The Armed Forces Retirement Home provides residential and healthcare services for retired members of the U.S. Armed Forces. Thousands of former US military service members have enjoyed a safe and secure retirement at this campus.

The Scott Project replaced an existing facility with a new skilled nursing facilities and community-wide health and wellness facilities for the entire Armed Forces Retirement Home campus. CRGA provided interior design services for this project, including the selection and specification of interior finishes, furnishings, and equipment. Part of CRGA’s services included providing medical space planning services to redesign the medical and dental clinics to meet their current needs. CRGA specified all of the furnishings and equipment for the project and prepared procurement packages.

Each household includes a living room, dining room, country kitchen, den, and outdoor terrace. All resident rooms are private and include fully ADA/ABA compliant toilet/shower rooms. The remaining portion of the building includes the following campus wide support facilities: dining, kitchen, multipurpose room, lounge/bar, fitness center, media room, mail center, library, hall of honor (museum and ceremony space), artist colony, health clinic, and outdoor terrace gardens.
