AlliedCook Construction has been selected as Construction Manager for Casa’s New ICF/IID Replacement Facility in Scarborough, Maine.
The new Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities will be constructed adjacent to the existing facility located at 148 Gorham Road in Scarborough. The 15,760-SF, one-story, wood-framed building will provide private and semi-private rooms totaling 16 beds for children and adults with developmental disabilities and medical needs. The state-of-the-art facility will also include a central nurses’ station, a treatment room, a therapy P.T. gym, and a therapy pool. The building also features a warm, inviting lobby with waiting and reception area, living rooms, dining room, a commercial kitchen and pantry, clean and soiled laundry rooms, a delivery area, medical supply rooms and storage areas, conference room, staff room, and administrative offices.
AlliedCook’s carefully planned approach to the construction of the new facility near the existing building will minimize impact during construction on the operations, residents and staff, as well as on the surrounding neighborhood.
Designed by Gawron Turgeon Architects of Scarborough, the facility will be divided into two distinct “neighborhoods” within the building to accommodate the development and age differences between the residents. Each neighborhood will have its own central community space that focuses on social activities and daily living.
The project is expected to be completed by April 2014.
Since the early 1980s, Casa has grown from a small nursing facility serving children with developmental disabilities and medical needs into an organization serving children and adults with a broad range of needs throughout Cumberland County. Casa provides 24-hour nursing services, habilitative therapies and training, and personal support.
