Construction Begins on Carillon Oaks Senior Assisted Living Facility

MADISON, ALABAMA, [August 2023] – The Highland Group, a premier general contracting firm serving the Southeastern United States, is pleased to announce the start of construction for the new state-of-the-art Carillon Oaks Senior Assisted Living Facility located at 1770 Slaughter Road, Madison, Alabama.

This purpose-built facility is being developed by Lathan & Coleman, LLC, a distinguished Alabama-based firm known for its expertise in developing, managing, and consulting senior living facilities across the state. The company currently operates Carillon Oaks facilities in Mobile, Heflin, and Lincoln.

Carillon Oaks’ mission is to enhance the quality of life for seniors in Alabama through the development of properties that offer resort-level amenities and best-in-class care. Their unique business model seamlessly blends new construction with historic rehabilitation in areas that may otherwise lack local, independent living, assisted living or memory care communities.

This new Madison facility will cater to seniors who require more comprehensive care with their daily living activities focusing on all-female memory care. Upon completion, it will boast an expansive 35,195 square feet space with 48 private rooms, an open courtyard at the center, a grand room, activity areas, physical therapy department, a nurse station, a full-service salon, and a dining room complete with a covered, screened porch.

The Highland Group brings its decades of experience to this vital community project. “As the general contractor, The Highland Group is honored to serve The Tennessee Valley Region by creating a state-of-the-art facility that enhances the quality of life for our seniors with resort-level amenities and best-in-class care. This is more than just a project for us, it’s a commitment to providing a dignified and luxurious living experience for the most respected members of our community,” – Michael Barnes, Vice President of The Highland Group – North Alabama.

The project team also includes Clarkitects, P.C. Architecture, Barton and Shumer, Layne Structural, and Elder and Associates. Each brings their particular expertise to ensure the Carillon Oaks – Madison facility is built to the highest standards.
