Year Completed



Lavallee Brensinger Architects

F&T provided full MEP/FP design and construction administration for the Somerville Hospital to re-open as a Behavioral Health facility owned by Cambridge Health Alliance and funded by the State of MA. This 5 floor, 5-phase renovation project was fast-tracked, which adds 69 new child, adolescent (aged 3-17) , and specialized youth neurodevelopmental beds to the Somerville campus. The project included the conversions of office and vacant spaces into patient rooms, activity space, seclusion, dining, multi-purpose rooms, staff rooms, consult rooms, offices, reception, and support spaces. The units are specially designed to provide a caring and calming setting for young people with acute behavioral health needs.
