Summit Behavioral Healthcare Center
Summit Behavioral Center is a 280-unit residential and treatment facility owned by the Ohio Department of Mental Health. We worked with the client to complete a multi-phased study and master plan that strategically consolidated the original 98-acre site down to an efficient 40-acre site that has numerous life cycle cost considerations without lowering the capacity of the center. Designing a striking new facility that incorporates residential, educational, treatment and administrative spaces at the same time creating a secure, humane and therapeutic environment, we understood that MEP systems played an important role in creating comfortable and therapeutic environments for the building’s occupants. Upgrades included site work and exterior rehabilitation, building code compliance, life safety, ADA work, security systems, finishes, walls, floors, furniture, doors, hardware, roofs, tuck pointing, interior/exterior lighting, windows, HVAC energy upgrades, fire alarm systems, site utilities, and numerous other MEP and fire protection upgrades.
