August celebrates National Wellness Month, and we are proud to work on projects that promote and advance health and wellness year-round. From universities to healthcare systems, we’ve recapping a few of our health and wellness projects.
Virtua Health, Health and Wellness Center, Moorestown, NJ
Located on 18 acres, the Virtua Health and Wellness Center facility is a combination of two- and three-story tenant wings along with a central entrance/elevator lobby and loading dock/maintenance facilities. The base core and shell project included 200,000 square feet of mixed business and assembly space along with site amenities and facilities support.
In addition to the base core and shell, the scope included extensive tenant improvements for Virtua Health Systems consisting of a full-service Health and Fitness Center with four pools, a running track, and locker rooms; and a Medical Office Wing containing urgent care services, pain management, lab, surgical consulting, nutrition, OBGYN, and breast care practices.
The state-of-the-art facility is geared towards keeping people healthy and helping people better manage their conditions, and has become the premier source for health and wellness services in Burlington County.
East Stroudsburg University, Health & Wellness Services Center, East Stroudsburg, PA
After completing the second phase of the Sycamore Suites project for East Stroudsburg University in 2017, the University decided to consolidate their Health and Wellness services and staff into the existing shelled space in the basement.
The scope of work included an initial demolition phase followed by the installation of 13 new geothermal heat pumps, as well as the re-purposing of existing heat pumps. New plumbing and sanitary fixtures were installed, as well as new electrical fixtures, low voltage cameras, Wifi access points, fire alarms and security sound control features. Additionally, P. Agnes completed the doors and hardware, framed new drywall & ACT, and installed new casework in the newly fit-out space.
The consolidated space enables ESU Health and Wellness services support the academic mission by engaging students, faculty, and staff in leading healthier lives and building supportive and sustainable environments, so that health can advance the capacity to learn and work.
Law Enforcement Health Benefits, Health & Wellness Center, Philadelphia, PA
LEHB is a non-profit organization that manages the health insurance program for the Philadelphia Police Department and the Police union. The new Health & Wellness Center constructed by P. Agnes is a welcoming new space for members to receive fitness training, behavioral, and dietary counseling.
The project included the demolition of an existing building, and design developed around LEHB’s needs. Sitework featured underground storm tank basins, a new asphalt parking lot, sidewalks, curbing, and site utilities. The exterior facades consisted of ultra-high-performance concrete panels with aluminum batten fins, veneer brick and a combination of glass and glazing systems including curtainwall, storefronts and window units. The lobby features wood wallcoverings, polished concrete, and tiles. The first floor of the center includes an aerobics room, cardio, weight training, and two bathrooms/locker rooms. The second floor is a mini clinic for Temple Health and includes five exam rooms, a conference room, demonstration kitchen with food prep appliances, offices, and counseling rooms.
