Eastern State Hospital: New Boiler Plant

30000468

The boiler plant at Eastern State Hospital supports the domestic hot water, heating system and kitchens for two major facilities, Eastlake and Westlake, comprised of approximately 300 patients and nearly 850 staff. The boiler plant building is structurally deficient and has been recommended by an external evaluator as needing replacement. This project constructs a new boiler plant, including demolition of the existing boiler plant building, which is leaning. A reappropriation of funds is also granted to complete predesign and design.

Lakeland Village: Code Required Campus Infrastructure Upgrades

30002238

The emergency electrical system at Lakeland Village is over 40 years old, does not meet current code requirements and is at the end of its useful life. This project will complete required electrical replacements, including reconfiguring circuits in campus buildings and replacing the emergency generator, automatic transfer switch and load management controls. This is the third phase of a capital project in which earlier phases were completed in prior biennia. A reappropriation of funds is also granted.

Fircrest School-Nursing Facilities: Replacement

30002755

Fircrest School provides nursing care for clients with intellectual and physical disabilities. The Y buildings in which nursing clients are housed contain failing water, sewer and electrical systems. Building configuration does not comply with one-to-one bedroom to client ratio requirements, and poses client accessibility issues in the toilet and bathing areas. There is no vacant nursing space to relocate nursing clients to in the event of an emergency. This project will design and construct a new 120-bed nursing facility at Fircrest School. This project will help meet the projected future demand for nursing.

Western State Hospital-Forensic Services: Two Wards Addition

30002765

Western State Hospital's Center for Forensic Services is operating at full capacity with no reserve to address the current waiting list, which has come under judicial scrutiny over the past several years. A shortage of forensic beds is projected to continue in the future. This project constructs two new 30-bed admission units (60 beds total) for competency evaluation and restoration at Western State Hospital's Center for Forensic Services. A reappropriation of funds is also granted.

Yakima Valley School-Multiple Buildings: Safety Improvements

30003573

Fire alarm systems in seven cottages at Yakima Valley School are connected to the Main Building fire alarm control panel, but do not provide specific location information, which may risk slower fire response. Also, the guardrails and handrails at the entrance to the Main Building entrance landing have rusted to the point of failure. The landing has settled in several locations, resulting in potential tripping hazards and noncompliance with ADA requirements. This project will replace the fire alarm system to provide addressable information to reduce response time and meet current code requirements. This project will also replace the landing, guardrail and handrails. A reappropriation of funds is also granted.

Western State Hospital-Multiple Buildings: Elevator Modernization

30003582

The elevators at Western State Hospital are beyond their useful life. An external consultant found deficiencies such as noncompliance with ADA requirements and other features such as operation controls, rope grippers and outdated, unreliable door operators. This project will modernize two elevators in Building 21 (South Hall), four elevators in Building 29 (East Campus) and one elevator in Building 9. This a second phase of a project started in 2015-17, which modernized one elevator in Building 18 and two elevators in Building 29 (East Campus). There are a total of six elevators in Building 29.

Western State Hospital-Building 28: Treatment & Recovery Center

40000024

Western State Hospital's Center for Forensic Services is operating at full capacity with no reserve to address the current waiting list, which has come under judicial scrutiny over the past several years. The existing treatment space is not suitable for a modern treatment setting. It lacks the appropriate size and configuration to effectively manage patients, particularly those with acute behavioral challenges. This project will design and construct a new Treatment and Recovery Center as an addition to Building 28, which will help address the waiting list by supporting treatment progress and reducing length of stay. A reappropriation of funds is also granted.

Special Commitment Center-King County SCTF: Building Purchase

40000041

The Department of Social and Health Services is in a long-term lease for a warehouse building at 132 South Spokane Street in Seattle. The agency operates it as a Secure Community Transition Facility and is committed to providing this least restrictive alternative in King County for many years to come. The purchase of the existing building results in a financial savings for the state over the expected life of the current lease and beyond. This project will purchase the King County Secure Community Transition Facility through a Certificate of Participation.

Western State Hospital-Emergency Power System: Essential Upgrades

40000383

The existing electrical system at Western State Hospital is outdated and unreliable. Interruptions and outages of the electrical supply may hinder the operations of Western State Hospital and an adequate response to fire and life safety events. This project will design and construct a new electrical system and emergency power infrastructure that will reliably serve the facility for decades.

Child Study and Treatment Center: New Emergency Power Generator

40000384

The Child Study and Treatment Center is dependent on Western State Hospital for emergency power. Western State Hospital's emergency power system is in poor condition and lacks capacity to add the Child Study and Treatment Center to it. This project provides the Child Study and Treatment Center its own code compliant emergency power system and supports opportunities for future expansion. This project also provides the benefit of equipping the Child Study and Treatment Center with a reliable emergency power system, which is needed to maintain its accreditation with The Joint Commission and the Center for Medicaid Services.

Western State Hospital is an outdated facility with an aging built environment that is not suitable for a modern treatment setting, and poses potential risks to staff and patient safety. This project performs a predesign and schematic design of a new, code compliant, 500-bed Forensic Center of Excellence. The predesign should include an evaluation of siting options plus an assessment of potential reuse options for ancillary and surplus Western State Hospital facilities in support of hospital operations, the Department of Social and Health Services or other compatible uses.

Rainier School-PATs A, E & C: Cottage Cooling Upgrades

40000391

The Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services specifies an acceptable temperature range of 68 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit for residents within an intermediate care facility. The resident spaces at Rainier School are cooled with a single air conditioner in the common room, but bedrooms can exceed 80 degrees for weeks at a time during summer months. This project constructs an energy efficient, Variable Refrigerant Flow cooling system to maintain resident space within temperature limits set by the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services. The system will include PAT A (seven cottages), PAT C (seven cottages) and PAT E (nine cottages).

The firehouse is an essential facility on McNeil Island that provides 24/7 emergency medical and fire response to all of McNeil Island, including the Special Commitment Center. It also serves as the island emergency command post and backup to Special Commitment Center emergency operations. Commercial power outages cause blackouts in the building, which poses potential risks to emergency response operations. This project designs and installs a new generator with fuel tank, automatic transfer switch, power distribution switchgear, new service panels to power customer equipment and adds service disconnection points.
