STV 100th Anniversary
Health and Science | Health Care Facilities  New York State Psychiatric Institute (New York, NY)

The New York State Psychiatric Institute’s 1929 building had not undergone any significant changes and had grown its facility to the point where it had to lease space for researchers. STV designed the engineering systems for a new $84 million replacement building, which was constructed on a prominent site on Riverside Drive in Manhattan. The award-winning 418,000-sf building contains facilities for research, inpatient and outpatient care, education and administration. About one-third of the building is dedicated to laboratories. The laboratory portion of the building is primarily occupied by the departments of neuropathology, neuroscience, the Human Genome Project and comparative medicine. STV designed the laboratories and all mechanical and electrical support systems to be adaptable for future research needs at minimum cost and disruption. The firm's use of a concrete flat plate structural system provides space above the ceiling for future installation of ducts and other utilities, an important consideration in health care facilities.
