Substance Abuse Treatment Facilities.
The featured CSTAR Facility is unique because of it's compact size (under 9,000 square feet) and flexibility. The client's program requested the facility segregate genders, yet be flexible to accommodate an imbalance of Male and Female clients at any one time. Along with the design work, AGM, Inc. provided expertise in code related adjustments in the planning of the hallways and corridors in order to active a safe, yet flexible facility. Working closely with the local fire department and building officials, we prototyped an inventive electric door system, provided a working the mockup for the client and contractor. Our significant effort payed off for the owner in reducing the size of the building and saving the owners over a million dollars in construction cost for comparable facilities.
