Genesis behavioral health, Laconia, NH
Genesis Behavioral Health (GBH) wanted consolidate their Laconia, NH services and administration offices that are currently housed in several locations around the city. SDA advised throughout the process, reviewing and assessing each potential property and site. The process led to the selection of this centrally located, 1890 Main Street building. In addition to providing convenient patient access, the building’s multi-story layout works well with the facility’s program which calls for separation between adult services, child and family services, and administration.
SDA worked with the client to renovate the building in such a way as to maintain the historic Main Street façade while creating a modern, medical facility. In order bring the facility into line with current energy efficiency standards and safety codes, the building had to be gutted down to the structure. The new, 3-story, 27,955 facility features a completely remodeled interior, insulated exterior walls and roof, energy efficient windows, and new mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems.
