State-Of-The-Art Mental Health Unit Wins Award
On November 2, 2017, the 7th Annual Fraser Valley Commercial Building Awards were held at the Cascades Casino Hotel & Convention Centre in Langley, where a Kinetic project completed at Surrey Memorial Hospital won an Award of Excellence in the Institutional Building Award category.
The Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Stabilization Unit (CAPSU) is a state-of-the-art unit for children and adolescents aged six to 17 with urgent mental health issues and need a five to seven day stay in hospital for stabilization. It features a Snoezelen™ Room, a multi-sensory environment used to help reduce agitation and anxiety and stimulate and encourage communication, the first of its kind for children and youth in a hospital psychiatric unit in Canada.
Kinetic, as Construction Manager worked on this project with Kirsten Reite Architecture, as project architect.
Congratulations to the entire project team on this award winning project!
