E4H designed Maine Behavioral Healthcare’s state-of-the-art Glickman Lauder Center of Excellence in Autism and Developmental Disorders received IIDA New England’s award for Best Project in Health/Wellness.
“We are so honored to be recognized by IIDA New England for the outstanding design work on this project. The Glickman Lauder Center of Excellence in Autism and Developmental Disorders embodies the best possible environment where people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can grow and learn,” remarked project lead Jon Boyd, AIA, LEED AP, LSSGB, Senior Associate. “Celebrating and elevating design through projects like this one is key to E4H’s mission of designing environments to enhance healing, advance health research, and elevate hope.”
The new 28,000SF facility consolidates services under one roof: adult and children’s treatment programs, outpatient care, and clinical research. Designers collaborated with staff to create a calming, supportive environment for ASD through sensory zoning, acoustics, and biophilic design. The IIDA New England awards honor the work and celebrates the teams behind each year’s most show-stopping spaces throughout New England. The health and wellness award honors the project that best promotes health & well-being and considers the physical, mental, and emotional effects of design on building occupants.
This project was led by Charles J. Rizza, AIA, NCARB; Jon Boyd, AIA, LEED AP, Senior Associate; and Brian Laderbush, Associate, with exceptional interior design by the E4H Interiors Team.
