Eastern State Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky replaces the state's oldest state-managed psychiatric hospital. The main building is a 273,000-SF, three-story construction located on a 28.85-acre site at the University of Kentucky Coldstream Farm. The project includes four 12,616-SF Personal Care Homes which provide transitional care from the hospital that assists the patients' acclimation into the community.
The new campus includes 168 adult psych beds, 25 forensic beds, 25 geriatric (GERO) beds, 12 acquired brain injury beds, and 48 personal care home beds. This LEED Silver certified project was designed in conjunction with SmithGroup.
The project was designed and constructed using Collaborative BIM, where the architects, engineers and contractors all work together on a detailed model of the building.
