The Texas Health Recovery and Wellness Center in Mansfield has been named a winner in the health-care category of the 2018 Design-Build Project/Team Awards by the Design-Build Institute of America.
The building is owned by Arlington-based Texas Health Resources, and The Beck Group of Dallas was the design-builder and project manager. It was the only North Texas project honored.
The win will move the $34 million facility forward to compete for a National Award of Excellence and Project of the Year, which will be announced in November at DBIA’s Design-Build Conference and Expo in New Orleans.
TEXAS HEALTH CENTER HELPS RESOLVE ADDICTION ISSUES
The center provides residential treatment for clients that need professional help to resolve addiction issues.
According to the DBIA, here’s the challenge that the design-build team faced for the center:
“Unusual weather conditions during the most critical time of the construction schedule delayed the project close to a month. In addition, there was a late request to add a visitation area to the building program, requiring design changes to fit this new space within the current footprint of the building. With proper communication and collaboration with the owner, the team was able to complete the project on time as originally scheduled.”
The center provides residential treatment for clients that need professional help to resolve addictions.
“This year’s National Design-Build Project/Team Award winners prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that design-build is changing the way America builds and delivering impressive results in communities from coast to coast.”
It’s a place where people come voluntarily to address their addiction issues, with client stays typically lasting 30 days. Clients are involved in daily routines that mainly are composed of group therapy activities. The center, which serves adolescents and adults from the Dallas-Fort Worth area and beyond, includes a swimming pool, gym, basketball court, fitness room, yoga studio, massage therapy, movie room, and dining area.
The Washington, D.C.-based Design-Build Institute is a membership organization that brings together thousands of organizations and individuals representing architects, engineers, owners, contractors, manufacturers, and others, to define, teach, and promote best practices in design-build.
“This year’s National Design-Build Project/Team Award winners prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that design-build is changing the way America builds and delivering impressive results in communities from coast to coast,” Lisa Washington, DBIA executive director and CEO, said in a release “Across all sectors and project sizes, these winners demonstrate the power of collaboration in projects that are as varied as they are resilient, innovative, cost-effective, and beautiful to behold.”
DBIA’s 2018 award-winning projects were evaluated by a panel of experts in design-build project delivery, according to the organization.
The Beck Group announced Tuesday that it will partner with Texas Health Resources for the third time on a design-build project, serving as architect and general contractor of the newly announced Texas Health Hospital Mansfield. The four-story, 195,400-square-foot hospital campus is scheduled to open in late 2020.
