Project Size

25,000 square feet


Wekiva Springs Center expanded its facility through the addition of a 20,000 square foot, 60-bed inpatient facility, renovation of pharmacy and dining areas and replacement of an aging outpatient building with a 4,800 square foot outpatient facility. The center helps patients heal by providing comprehensive behavioral health and substance abuse treatment.


The design team developed a creative, cost-effective solution for corridor racking and offsite restroom construction. After analyzing several options, the team designed a pre-insulated air distribution ductwork that is lighter than conventional ductwork. This option resulted in schedule savings of two weeks on the overall project and an estimated 10% cost savings, in comparison with conventional ductwork.
