OZ Principal Architect Jami Mohlenkamp was invited to moderate the Senior Housing Conference & Care Expo in Denver, Colorado this past April, hosted by the Colorado Real Estate Journal. As Colorado’s largest assembly of senior housing developers, operators, brokers, lenders and other related real estate professionals, this conference drew an audience of more than 400 attendees to engage in sessions on the housing industry, challenges facing modern developers, and the future of design and construction in Colorado and beyond.
Jami was invited to moderate the Design & Construction session, which included other architects and a general contractor sharing information about how retiring baby boomers are affecting the design and construction of local communities, and how architects and designers can impart new and innovative designs in communities of the future.
Jami guided and participated in the conversation by drawing on his years of project experience designing for senior housing, healthcare, and multi-family projects focused on responsive design bolstered by technical excellence. As a thought leader in the realm of senior living design, Jami encourages developers and designers to consider modern integrated community designs for those leaving the working world and entering retirement. To him and his team at OZ, keeping aging populations connected and close to their families—especially grandchildren—is an important part of the puzzle, along with designing for comfortable, independent and empowered living.
By sharing his expertise in independent living, assisted living and rehabilitation facilities, Jami was able to guide a discussion that will certainly continue to live at the forefront of the design and construction conversation long into the future.
