The Counseling Center at Toms River (Toms River, NJ)
The project involved finish-out of 2,555 SF shell space on the lower level of an existing 2-story 9,800 SF building to accommodate The Counseling Center, an institutional supervised outpatient environment. The Counseling Center provides a safe and comfortable environment for medically-supervised detox from alcohol and substance dependency. The scope of work included interior renovations required to portion areas to create waiting rooms, a reception/copy area, consult room, chart room, exam room, office space for counselors and administrators, restrooms, panty, IT closet, and conference rooms. Work included new mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems throughout; a new fire alarm system; and alterations to the existing fire sprinklers system. This project was a negotiated project which resulted in increased bid response from subs, increased quality and competitiveness of bids, and a more collaborative process for field conditions and drawing plans for subcontractors. Our experience with luxury retail was an excellent complement for the quality and detailed finishes required.
