About the project
|Size||63,863 SF||Location||Illinois||Firm Role||Planning|
PFB was commissioned to review / revise a 66-bed hospital space program for completeness and appropriateness, and provide an accurate project (construction and “soft”) cost estimate for a new behavioral health facility. PFB then designed two plan studies based on the programmatic, costing, and site needs.
Comparing the options of renovating the hospital’s existing facilities versus building a replacement Behavioral Health Pavilion (BHP), PFB determined that a replacement pavilion will achieve the desired clinical functional model that cannot be met by renovating the existing building, will provide an entirely new image for the hospital, and will reduce current energy consumption. The savings on energy and infrastructure maintenance would cover the difference between renovation versus a new building in 13 years.
