Institute for Healthy Living

The Institute for Healthy Living facility consists of five (5), 1 to 3-story residential structures totaling approximately 250,000-square feet. The buildings are constructed of reinforced concrete, masonry and structural steel. The buildings are supported on conventional shallow footing foundations supported by soils improved by the vibro-compaction method.
