The project is a 60,000-sf residential and outpatient treatment facility for Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center on a corner site that is directly across from the main hospital facility of their Fulton Division. This new five-story building houses several outpatient programs specializing in the treatment of people in substance-abuse recovery. In addition to the outpatient programs, there will be three floors of residential programs for up to 100 residents.
The design intention is two-fold: to create a welcoming residential setting for outpatients and staff, while simultaneously communicating a professional service-delivery system. Funding for this project was provided by NYS OASAS, with project management by the New York State Dormitory Authority (DASNY).
WASA/Studio A’s M/E/P Engineering group was also responsible for site storm-water drainage systems, which include catch basins, catch-basin sumps and storm-water detention tanks required for regulatory compliance.
