Have you seen the code book for a Psychiatric Facility?  Many regulations are put in place to protect patients, protect employees and overall improve the health of those needing a facility of this type.  The challenge of following the code book was not the only task here.  The Behavioral Health Unit was to fit within an existing 3rd Floor cold, dark shell constructed in the 1970’s.  Limitations on clearances, sources of natural light and integration into existing mechanical and plumbing systems presented challenges for the entire design team.

An efficient space planning exercise by GLA’s design team resulted in a floor plan that met all criteria required by not only the restrictive codes but also by the users.  Each department was able to review and approve the layout, sightlines, security access and daily function.  With the help of the general contractor, Kent Design Build, the project was completed on schedule and under budget.  The original Owner-provided budget was $1.5 Million.  The contract amount ended at $1.38 Million with a Change Order percentage of only 1.16%.  Both Greenleaf Lawson Architects and Kent Design Build are proud of those statistics and look forward to showcasing those abilities on future projects.
