Excellence Assisted Living Facility selects Rabits & Romano for design of Excellence at the Villages
New senior residence will serve The Villages and Lake County
Orlando, Fla. - (June 30) - Excellence Assisted Living Facility has turned to Rabits & Romano Architecture, Planning and Design to head the design team for Excellence at the Villages - Excellence’s latest luxury facility in Central Florida.
Excellence at the Villages is a $25 million project at 39520 Gray’s Airport Road, Lady Lake, Florida. The facility will have a total of 160 rooms, 126 single occupancy units and 34 double occupancy units, and will employ more than 90 people. More than 100 construction jobs are expected to be created.
Architectural design is underway and construction is expected to start in 2014. Florida Engineering Group will serve as the site engineers and Bobes Associates will serve as MEP engineers on the project.
Excellence at the Villages is the second major project where Excellence Assisted Living Facility has sought Rabits & Romano and Florida Engineering Group’s professional skills. The companies also collaborated on an assisted living center along Semoran Boulevard in East Orange County just outside Orlando. That project of 131 rooms is expected to break ground later this summer.
“Rabits & Romano and Florida Engineering Group have a keen understanding of the latest trends in adult living facilities. The firms attention to detail, as well as their ability to stay on schedule and on budget are greatly appreciated,’’ said Prof. Anthony Portigliatti, Ph. D with Excellence Assisted Living Facility.
Excellence Assisted Living Facility, based in Orlando, is an emerging developer of senior care facilities. The company has two planned assisted living facilities in Central Florida and others on their way across the south.
The new facility will have these key design features:
Major Health Center
Lecture Rooms/Private Offices for Life Coaching
Technology Center with a media and video library
Rabits & Romano, based in Lake County, has a track record of nearly three decades designing healthcare and commercial living facilities to assist elders.
Managing Partner Bob Rabits notes that improving the design and livability of assisted living facilities and senior communities is a critical responsibility for his firm.
“Everyone deserves the right to enjoy their golden years in a vibrant community, surrounded by friends and amenities they need to live the very best life possible,’’ Rabits said. “Excellence at the Villages will have the finest in recreational, health, and fitness lifestyle, as well as the latest in technology.’’
The architectural firm will pay specific attention to Excellences main feature of life coaching. Through life coaching Excellence addresses specific personal projects, business success, general conditions and transitions in the residents’ personal lives, relationships or professions by examining what is going on in their lives. They then choose a course of action to make their life be what they want it to be.
Resident offices will be designed specifically for life coaching by providing designated spaces for one-on-one consulting, mentoring, therapy and counseling. Lecture rooms will be designed to host life coaching speeches and group mentoring with all the latest technology available.
Excellence at the Villages is expected to draw residents from communities northwest of the Orlando metro area, including Lady Lake and North Lake County, Ocala, and The Villages.
