WCN Editorial Team 30 Sep 2021 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

The $40m modernisation work has commenced of the Office of Mental Health's Central New York Psychiatric Center and Secure Treatment and Rehabilitation Center campus in the Oneida County town of Marcy in the New York state.

This project is being undertaken by the Dormitory Authority of the New York state and will see overhaul 100,000ft2 of the facility, including its infrastructure.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul said: "We have an obligation to ensure that all state-run facilities are meeting the needs of the New Yorkers they serve.

"By investing in this critical infrastructure update, we will ensure these facilities can continue to safely and more adequately serve both the workforce employed at this campus and the individuals housed there well into the future."

The project will see Building 77 and the Building 39 Medical Suite being renovated, including the campus pharmacy and kitchen.

It will also feature upgrades to the electrical, lighting, data, and security systems, HVAC replacement, selective demolition, and asbestos and PCB abatement.

The work also consists of renovation of around 100,000ft2, including the installation of new boilers, chillers, pumps, and a new chilled water and heating water distribution system.

These two buildings will be occupied through the duration of construction.

The Central New York Psychiatric Center offers inpatient services for inmates in custody of the state Department of Corrections and Community Services and pre-trial detainees from 25 upstate county jails, besides restoration services for individuals found unfit to stand trial.

The Secure Treatment and Rehabilitation Center offers residential treatment to individuals who have been ordered confinement under New York's Sex Offender Management and Treatment Act.
