This residential school for troubled boys was in dire need of updated medical facilities for students and staff. We worked closely with the school’s building committee members to develop a plan and aesthetic to meet the regulations of the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), NJ Department of Health (DOH) & DCA, as well as campus standards for building security and safety, all within the budget established by the Trustees.
The program includes as 8-bed inpatient wing, Nurse Station, Pharmacy and an Outpatient wing with treatment, examination, and doctor office spaces.
Materials chosen for durability and affordability include brick veneer and fiber cement exteriors, a steel truss roof structure, and aluminum windows and entrances. We obtained municipal site plan approvals as well as all State Health Care Plan Review unit approvals for this work.
