The Havenwyck Hospital project included the 78,000 square foot addition of a 20 bed acute care unit and 103 bed residential treatment unit. Along with the expansion, renovations for the adolescent units, kitchen, dining and office spaces were completed. The existing facility is 85,000 square feet and with the addition the total completed project will result in a 163,000 square foot psychiatric treatment facility.
Schedule challenges include keeping the facility in operation and construction disturbances to a minimum, so as not to upset the daily patient care activities. Logistic challenges include equipment access to the various added wings as the facility is lake bordered to the north.
The US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design (LEED) has been used as a guideline in the design of this facility. Consideration has been given to sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy & atmosphere and material & resources.
