Mark Ridley-Thomas Behavioral Health Center
A former hospital building is repurposed for community mental health treatment
The Mark Ridley-Thomas Behavioral Health Center project is an adaptive repurposing of the former MLK hospital building. The 5-story, 505,000 SF building will be demolished to the structural members and floors, then rebuilt with new MEPT services and distribution systems with supply service points of connection in the existing campus central utility plant. The renovations will provide mental health services, including urgent care, outpatient, psychiatric health, substance abuse, and rehabilitation. The design-build team is led by HOK and Bernards in partnership with Los Angeles County Public Works.
P2S will provide electrical, audiovisual, building security, data cable design and construction support services for the main building and adjacent central plant renovations. We’re also providing electrical design for the installation of a domestic water booster pump and heating hot water system with a recirculation pump. This $223 million, design-build project is scheduled to have substantial construction completion by April 2021.
