"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
After graduating from Chicago Technical College as an engineer, Floyd Alden Schlossberg began working in the construction industry in the early 1960s. In 1961 Floyd founded Alden Bennett Construction Co. Inc. and primarily built schools, fire stations, park district field houses and libraries for the City of Chicago. However, in the late 1960s, his wife’s grandfather fell ill and required 24-hour nursing care, but in searching for a home he recognized a need for quality nursing care and affordable healthcare for the aging populations. Expanding on his vision of what healthcare should be, Floyd built his first licensed Skilled Nursing facility in 1970. In order to control and manage all aspect of design, he hired his own architectural firm to work exclusively on his projects which ultimately lead to the creation of Alden Design Group, Inc in 1990.
28 years strong
The original members of Alden Design Group, Inc. were personally interviewed and guided by Floyd in his concepts and vision. His aspirations for the quality of resident care and their surroundings pushed them to be innovators in the senior care design industry and for over 28 years Alden Design Group has been part of 45 projects with Floyd and continue to create projects based on the beliefs and standards that Floyd started. Today, ADG carries the pursuit of perfection and the drive to be innovators in every project that we are part of whether it be healthcare, hospitality, residential or commercial. Our team has the skills, knowledge and passion to make every individual project unique.
