Our firm is providing construction management at risk (preconstruction and construction) services for two renovation projects for Towson University. The Institute for Well-Being (IWB) is the interprofessional practice arm of The College of Health Professions and provides clinic space for programs in Occupational Therapy, Speech & Language, Hearing & Balance as well as the Hussman Center for adults with autism. The project’s goal is to provide renovated space to accommodate these clinic functions within two University owned buildings (41,000 GSF at 7400 York Rd and 5,400 GSF at the Towson University Administration Building located at 7720 York Road).
The scope of the project includes new interior renovations to accommodate the clinic and programming function of the Institute. A new main landscaped plaza and new lobby entrance area will provide improved access and accommodation. Life safety and accessibility improvements throughout the building will include new egress stairs and toilet facilities. Building efficiency will be improved with new foam insulation at previously uninsulated exterior walls. Mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems will be modified to accommodate the new use and will be integrated with existing building equipment. Landscape improvements will include a new therapeutic playground and reconfiguration of parking.
