This new mental health facility replaced buildings from the early 1900's with a 2-storey (plus 1 lower level) 200 bed in-patient care unit, a 3-storey out-patient wing and a 7-storey research and administration tower all totaling 400,000 square feet of space.
The structure involved cast-in-place concrete, masonry cladding and curtainwall with state-of-the-art wireless communications and security systems. Although the project involved only new construction, it was built while the existing hospital remaining fully operational on the adjacent site.
