The Bradley Hospital, an affiliate of Brown University, is nationally recognized for the quality of its adolescent and child psychiatry programs. Bradley was not well served by its original campus of seven buildings encompassing nearly 64,000 square feet. Our charge at Bradley began with the development of a master plan for the future capital projects on the campus with an emphasis on; improving the quality of the inpatient environment, supporting increased outpatient therapy and school, and research functions. The master plan proposed a series of carefully orchestrated projects that would allow the continued operation of all existing programs while renovating every space and judiciously adding sufficient space to support a new state-of-the-art inpatient environment for 60 children.
That addition encompassed 40,000 square feet. We were retained to program the Phase One Inpatient Expansion, to design floor plans for the inpatient additions and renovations, and to assist the architect of record with the selection and detailing of all products within the patient environment.

“We’re extremely proud of our modern new facility, which we feel reflects the expertise of our staff and allows us to better meet the rising demand for child and adolescent mental health services. We were fortunate to work with such a talented and committed design and construction team who listened to our staff and helped make our vision a reality. We’re delighted that this project was recognized with such a prestigious award.”
