This new 240-bed mental hospital for violent offenders and sexual predators includes patient care wards, an activity center, an administration/outpatient evaluation suite, administration suite, and related support functions.
The self-sufficient, multi-classification facility provides the majority of criminal forensic mental health evaluation for the Washington State Division of Mental Health. The Suite and related support facilities include custom control panels for duress, audio monitoring, door control and monitoring, intercom and paging systems, and CCTV camera selection at indirect and direct management officers’ stations.
All systems were integrated through the use of a centralized PLC system with redundant processors and power supplies supported by UPS conditioned power. The Central Control Room consoles used for mounting the control panels, CCTV monitors, and other equipment were also designed by HK.
Other systems included fire alarm, television distribution, visitor’s intercom, and access control (card reader).
