Located in Centralia, the design and construction of the new Washington State Department of Social and Health Services Maple Lane 16-bed in-patient Behavioral Health Facility has required a high degree of flexibility and responsiveness. We worked closely with BCRA Architects, Korsmo Construction, and BCE Engineers during this project’s design and early construction phases to adapt the plans for constructability and sustainability goals. This included adapting the exposed wood framing system to facilitate electrical and sprinkler requirements, designing roof joists to support solar panels, and providing solutions to simplify the framing for ease of construction. Because it functions as a prototype, refining the design and addressing construction concerns at Maple Lane will streamline the production of other community-based behavioral health facilities throughout the state. The project is set for completion in 2023 and targets LEED Gold certification.
