The Skip’s Hall project, a new patient intake building and inpatient behavioral health facility at the Father Martin’s Ashley campus includes the admissions functions and a nursing/medical area that serves new patients during the admission process. The two-story, 36-bed facility also includes a fitness center, wellness services and associated clinical and office space. Each patient room has its own private bathroom and dressing area.
In addition to the construction of the main facility, DPR performed several campus upgrades including a new guard house at the main entrance and a new wastewater treatment plant.
With the addition of Skip’s Hall, DPR helped Father Martin’s Ashley campus increase their capacity capabilities to host 100 patients at a time, improve the transition process from admission to medical assessment to residence, and ultimately reduce the stress a patient often faces with the decision to seek treatment.
DPR performed waste tracking, recycling more than 85 percent of construction waste.
The use of BIM was limited to above-ceiling coordination. The project consisted of wood-framed structural components with a healthcare MEP system, making coordination difficult.
