Work is starting on $40 million project to modernize the Office of Mental Health’s Central New York Psychiatric Center and Secure Treatment and Rehabilitation Center campus in the Oneida County town of Marcy.
The Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY) will overhaul 100,000 sq. ft. of the structure, including its infrastructure, Gov. Kathy Hochul said in a Sept. 29 statement. Jacobs Project Management is overseeing the work.
“We have an obligation to ensure that all state-run facilities are meeting the needs of the New Yorkers they serve,” Hochul said. “By investing in this critical infrastructure update, we will ensure these facilities can continue to safely and more adequately serve both the workforce employed at this campus and the individuals housed there well into the future.”
Building 77 and the Building 39 Medical Suite will be renovated, including the campus pharmacy and kitchen. The project will include upgrades to the electrical, lighting, data, and security systems, HVAC replacement, selective demolition, and asbestos and PCB abatement.
The work includes the installation of new boilers, chillers, pumps, and a new chilled water and heating water distribution system. Both buildings will be occupied through the duration of construction.
