brownsville multi-service family health center - BMS Main
Brooklyn-based Brownsville Multi-Service Family Health Center has recently experienced rapid growth and increased need for services, and retained Gertler & Wente Architects to renovate their existing flagship location in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn.
Renovations of approximately 7,500 square feet include new Article 28 compliant exam suites including an OB/Gyn suite with new waiting area and 7 exam rooms, expansion of the existing Adult Medicine space to create 4 new exam rooms, a new pharmacy, and full renovation of the building lobby and entrance area. The overall scope of work also includes rerouting of ductwork and sprinklers, plumbing for new patient restrooms, construction of a new ADA-compliant exterior ramp and stair, and installation of a new code-compliant fire alarm system.
Construction occurred in carefully orchestrated phases so that the BMS Main facility could remain fully operational and open to patients 6 days a week throughout the renovations.
