RIVER PLACE BEHAVIORAL HEALTH HOSPITAL
Facility reimagined to deliver much needed inpatient behavioral health services to adults and adolescents.
A two-phase project to convert an active emergency room into an 82-bed acute psychiatric facility. This existing facility was to be demoed, abated, and renovated while maintaining access to the existing facility without disrupting their daily activities. In addition to the renovation there was extensive site-work that needed to be completed.
ALPA worked with facility management and the Louisiana state fire Marshall’s office to create a safe, clean and productive environment. ALPA used LEAN Construction practices to efficiently schedule work in areas throughout the hospital to maintain schedule and hospital operations.
At the start of construction ALPA had to demo and relocate the existing mammography and ultrasound areas to allow Ochsner to continue providing important care to the southeast Louisiana community. ALPA completed the demo and rebuild of the admin space in under one month to mitigate operational issues for Ochsner. In conjunction with Stengel Hill Architecture, we developed planning to allow Acadia Healthcare to license and occupy the renovated patient units prior to completion of phase two
