Cain Thomas Associates provides mechanical and electrical engineering services for many independent / assisted living projects.

Independent / Assisted Living

Senior housing has been the largest portion of our work these past several years. With the aging Baby Boomers moving into retirement, large numbers of these facilities are being renovated or constructed.

We are involved with senior housing projects daily. We work with architects, contractors, and directly with owners to upgrade older facilities and build new buildings.

We coordinate the complex engineering systems going into the project with the other aspects of the design. These systems include not only heating cooling, and lighting, but also technology cabling, emergency power systems, and humidity control. We have deep experience with these systems and many others.
