The Aspens Assisted Living

Hines, Oregon


completed 2019

530 sq ft

Code Compliant

When Ascent began to help The Aspens Living Center add some extra space to their building, we discovered an issue with the building code. However, our team worked diligently with the State and the general contractor to fix any non-compliant issues. We demonstrated that our addition complied with the allowable area regulations such as “occupant load” and “exiting.” We also added smoke doors at the corridors to improve safety in the dining and multipurpose rooms.

Additional space

In the end, Ascent added 10 feet to the existing dining room, 10 feet to the existing multi-purpose room, and an exterior covered walkway to join the two rooms. We added a total of 530 square feet to The Aspens Living Center and corrected any non-compliant code issues. The covered walkway ties in with the existing architecture as the same building materials and colors were specified in the plans.
