Racanelli Construction Builds Second Facility for The Center for New Horizons, Inc. Head Injury Associates

Racanelli Construction Company, Inc. recently completed a new facility for the Center for New Horizons, Inc., Head Injury Associates. The 10,000 square foot, one floor facility is located in Mineola, NY. Racanelli Construction has served the organization before, having built a similar facility in Hauppauge for the Center for New Horizons

The Mineola-based project involved a complete gut and build-out. Racanelli installed interior foundation walls along with underground plumbing, a ramp to accommodate individuals with disabilities, exterior canopy, aluminum composite material (ACM) panels, as well as sidewalks, curbs and an asphalt parking lot. A full kitchen, bathrooms and six activity rooms, each with its own sink, cabinets, bathrooms, showers and closets, were built.

Among the materials and components used in the project were: metal studs, 5/8” sheetrock, epoxy floor, medal door frames, prefinished wood doors, storefront glass and glass sliding doors, acoustic ceiling tiles (ACT) and ceiling grid, acoustical soffits, tiles, plumbing, bathroom fixtures and accessories. In addition to electrical components, three new heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) roof top units were installed.

Because of its medical use, the project was designed as a medical facility which was in full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations. The project did require various approvals for the numerous field condition change orders and there were some challenges relating to in-progress changes such as the complete redesign of the facility’s main storefront entrance.

The Racanelli team members involved in this Center for New Horizons project included: Project Executive Marty Racanelli, Jr., Project Supervisor Mike Matassa, Project Manager Rachelle Felicio, and Assistant Project Manager Chenoa Justinvil.
