Lakeland Behavioral Health System renovation and addition
440 S. Market Ave.
Ireland Architects Inc. is the project architect on a renovation and addition to Lakeland Behavioral Health System. Officials say the project includes an upgrade to the psychiatric hospital’s security and mechanical system. The design calls for a covered outdoor area and playground surrounded by high-security fencing, a revamped main entrance and reception area with enhanced security, and an enclosed ambulance bay to help secure the transporting of patients. Base Construction & Management LLC is the general contractor, and engineering work is by Heithaus Engineering & Associates Inc., civil; J&M Engineering LLC, structural; and RTM Engineering Consultants LLC, mechanical, electrical and plumbing. The project is expected to be complete in September.
