Contractor: Washington Patriot Construction

Washington Patriot provided design-build services for the repair and renovation of a 14,000-square-foot psychiatric patient care unit. This included patient care room renovations, improved safety of staff work areas, floor and ceiling refreshes, and the addition of behavioral health specific finishes and hardware throughout the floor. The project scope included improvements to the nurse call, fire alarm, access control, and security systems within the patient care area, which greatly improved the overall standard of care in the unit, as well as the staff and patient safety. Work was completed over six phases to allow facility operations to continue while Washington Patriot performed the tenant improvement renovations. It was imperative that the unit was able to continue its mission-critical objectives during construction. Hospital infection control and patient safety measures were utilized throughout the project and unique behavioral health specific elements were custom made for the project.
