Stevens Construction says Aspire Health Partners, Inc., a nonprofit 501(c)(3) behavioral healthcare organization, has selected it for the interior renovation of the Access Center at 1800 Mercy Dr. in Orlando.
Orlando division manager said Michael Waskiewicz said in a statement that the contractor is providing a 5,360-sq. ft. renovation within the existing facility to allow for better social distancing as patients begin their screening services within the community mental health center.
The fast-track project includes eight new patient bays, a nurse station and additional support areas. The center remains open during construction.
The renovations are being funded by Orange County Government through federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) funds. The project will be licensed and inspected by the Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA), which ensures compliance of Florida healthcare facilities.
The Stevens Construction project team includes project manager, Bruce Chartrand; superintendent, Anthony LaFata; and project administrator, RoseMarie Aldred. The architect of record is Jeffrey Smith of RS&H.
