Jarmel Kizel Completes Architectural, Engineering and Structural Design
for Montgomery Care Center in Freehold, NJ
LIVINGSTON, N.J. (March 7, 2011)—Jarmel Kizel Architects and Engineers, Inc., a full-service architecture and engineering firm based in Livingston, New Jersey, has completed the design of three new nurses stations at the John L. Montgomery Care Center in Freehold Township in Monmouth County, New Jersey. The project encompassed demolishing the existing nurse stations on the second, third and fourth floors of the facility and replacing them with new, modern highly functional stations.
Jarmel Kizel provided all architectural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection drawings, as well as structural evaluations for this project. Others services included programming, site analysis, schematic design, design development, bidding and construction contract administration.
“Our team took all things into consideration when designing this project,” said Matthew B. Jarmel, AIA, MBA and principal of Jarmel Kizel. “We truly understood the importance of keeping the center open during the construction process and we took every necessary step to minimize the disruptions to the staff and the patients. The project was a success and we maintained the client’s schedule and budget.”
Irwin H. Kizel, AIA, principal of Jarmel Kizel, led this assignment on behalf of the firm.
Within this medical setting, Jarmel Kizel made several functional considerations including sound absorbing surfaces to ensure noise control and privacy, private areas for computers to monitor patients and their medical records, hand-washing sinks, refrigerators for storing medications and locked containers for secure items, among others. Jarmel Kizel’s team also had to consider the use of glass walls to ensure patient-staff visibility, traffic flow to decrease patient flow through the nurses’ stations, an aesthetically pleasing environment for both the patients and the staff, and ADA compliance.
Jarmel Kizel’s recent experience in the medical sector includes the Health Command Center for New Jersey’s Department of Health and Senior Services, several dermatology offices throughout the state for a repeat client; a call center for Notify MD, and the South Jefferson Medical Arts building.
