Armed Forces Retirement Home, Gulfport
SFCS worked with the URS Group and Yates Construction to restore the Armed Forces Retirement Home campus in Gulfport, MS, after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. The new facilities accommodate up to 600 residents with three residential pavilions. The most significant programmatic constraint included raising the first occupied level of the new design to a height of at least 35' above sea level, placing it approximately 15' above the existing grade. A Hall of Honor and Main Street is provided, and accommodations include independent living apartments, two memory support households, two nursing households, and an assisted living wing. This project is certified LEED Gold.
