MARCY, N.Y. — Work has started on a $40 million modernization of the Office of Mental Health’s Central New York Psychiatric Center and Secure Treatment and Rehabilitation Center campus in Marcy in Oneida County.
The project undertaken by the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York will overhaul 100,000 square feet of the facility, including its infrastructure, according to a Sept. 29 news release from the office of Gov. Kathy Hochul.
Crews will renovate Building 77 and the Building 39 Medical Suite, 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 throughout the duration of construction, the release noted.
Delta Engineers, Architects, & Surveyors says on its website that it is the prime consultant for this extensive renovation of key building systems and safety infrastructure at the CNY Psychiatric Center campus. Delta is based in Endwell and also has offices in DeWitt, Vernon, and Schenectady.
The CNY Psychiatric Center provides inpatient services for inmates in custody of the state Department of Corrections and Community Services and pre-trial detainees from 25 upstate county jails, as well as restoration services for individuals found unfit to stand trial. The Secure Treatment and Rehabilitation Center provides residential treatment to individuals ordered confined under New York’s Sex Offender Management and Treatment Act.
