recenter is a rehabilitation facility located in Houston, Texas, providing non-medical detox, drug and alcohol rehabilitation and housing services to those recovering from addiction. The overall project scope consisted of a new five-story 50,573-sq.-ft. mixed-use building complete with a dining room, meeting room, lounge, offices and 62 individual residential units. Outdoor amenities include terraces, porches and a garden roof deck.
As a hybrid project, recenter employed structural steel for levels one and two, while levels three through five are made up of a structural metal stud wall and floor joist system. The top floors are comprised of 30,000 sq. ft. of S-Series structures fabricated by Digital Building Components. recenter is Digital Building Components’ first load-bearing wall and joisted floor project in the state.
recenter had zero safety incidents, and the project’s reduced schedule helped reduce risk exposure. Not only did the recenter project team top the daily install average from previous projects, it condensed what would have taken up to 60 workers onsite to construct in 3.5 months into mere weeks with only eight workers.
