Vivante Phase II

Vivante is a multibuilding assisted living and memory care community in Orange County. With Phase II, Vivante adds 118 assisted and independent living residences and many new amenities to the existing property. SGH served as the structural engineer for the project.

Scope | Solutions

SGH designed the structure for the four-story building. Highlights of our design include the following:

  • A partial basement, including parking and utility spaces

  • Post-tensioned flat plate concrete floor slabs to provide reinforced concrete columns and shallow concrete foundations

  • Special reinforced concrete shear walls integrated with the perimeter wall system and coordinated with the architectural design

  • Concealed two-story concrete arches and post-tensioned queen-post hanger columns supporting the residential floors over the column-free multipurpose room

  • A steel-framed porte cochere
