4. Required Square Footage
(Doug): David, how many square feet should be considered for let’s say a 12 bed unit?
(David): What we’re finding as we look at existing units is that the general size for a 12 bed unit is about 7500 square feet. That of course varies with the decisions you make about private and semi-private rooms and it’s just the kind of environment you want to create, and also really the geometry of the space. But about 7500 is a good rough planning number.
