Nilex recommended and supplied Stormwater Chambers to handle stormwater runoff beneath the parking lot, a walking trail and the landscaped courtyard.

Meadow Ridge Seniors Village
By Peter Stenning
Age-appropriate housing is one of the biggest challenges facing our ageing baby boomer society. The swelling ranks of people 65 and older have led more developers to focus on residences for seniors – whether independent living, supportive/assisted living, or residential care.
The new Meadow Ridge Seniors Village in Medicine Hat, Alberta, is a textbook example of how careful thought and planning can result in pleasant living accommodations – even on a somewhat limited budget, while still allowing for the care needs of residents.
Scheduled for full occupancy at the end of August, the $18.5-million Meadow Ridge is a supportive living site developed by family-owned Park Place Seniors Living under a contract with Alberta Health/Alberta Seniors. The new facility will provide 80 subsidized suites for seniors (and four for private pay residents), with priority given to those with frailties and/or cognitive impairment.
