A Charitable, Non-Profit Seniors Residential Community located in Cambridge, Ontario. MMMC is retained to prepare a Campus Master Plan and Preliminary Design for the redevelopment of a new 114 resident long-term care facility to new MOHLTC design standards.

A single storey design allows each resident a view of green space. The design includes 20 private rooms, 40 semi-private and 40 standard along with a 25-bed Secure Care Unit.

Chartwell is currently operating a Retirement and LTC Home on the fully occupied and extremely tight site in Ajax, Ontario.

The scope of work includes construction of a new three-storey building with partial basement and site improvements including various landscaped courtyards.

One and two- bedrooms suites are offered with amenities including large balconies and at-grade patios, a shared outdoor courtyard, party room with full kitchen, fitness facilities, bicycle parking, and resident storage lockers.
