THE CABOT GROUP Facilitates Opening of Golisano Behavioral Health and Wellness Center
With a global pandemic well under our belt, and with a wealth of other contributing and compounding factors, the need for easy access to quality pediatric mental health care has never been more critically apparent.
A nationwide movement to normalize mental healthcare is well underway, perhaps due to an increased understanding of how psychological processes correlate with our physical health.
Who better to answer this call and meet the need for outstanding pediatric mental healthcare than the Golisano Behavioral Health and Wellness Center. THE CABOT GROUP was delighted to oversee the delivery of the new center conveniently located at 1860 South Ave. in Rochester, NY. If you’ve ever been inside Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong Memorial Hospital, you know you are in the very best hands. You may be facing the scariest experience your family has ever been dealt, but as soon as you enter the doors, you seem to have found a place of solace. Extraordinary thought is placed in ensuring that families feel supported, cared for, and as comfortable as possible. This same attention to the family experience was carried throughout every detail of the Behavioral Health and Wellness Center that shares its name. The design and planning for this facility were incredibly detailed and thoughtfully orchestrated by the dedicated University of Rochester team. Designers and engineers worked diligently to provide the safest and most productive environment possible and a patient experience that meets the unique needs of the community they are serving.
THE CABOT GROUP was charged with managing pre-construction programming and planning with teams from the University of Rochester Pediatric and Behavioral Health department and the Al Sigl Center. Those duties included obtaining approval from the City of Rochester, coordinating design and engineering services, administering the construction cost bid process, and negotiating contracts with the general contractors and related third parties. Once the initial planning phase was completed, THE CABOT GROUP worked closely with the general contractor in order to coordinate all construction activities.
When the construction of the facility was completed, THE CABOT GROUP secured all close-out activities, manage the department’s move to the new building, and helped coordinate the grand opening activities.
Following the opening, THE CABOT GROUP continues to provide facilities maintenance services for the facility and serve as a resource for the University’s building services team.
THE CABOT GROUP IS thrilled to have played a part in such an important resource for the Greater Rochester community.
