PROJECT DELIVERY —
- ABC of NC provides educational and occupational services for those affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder. With a growing base of 350 students served in a 22-county radius, they needed more room for students and their expanded activities. Samet, along with Steele Group Architects and ID Collaborative, helped ABC of NC grow to help a capacity of 600 by adding two new facilities to their campus, comprised of an activity center and a clinic.
- The 26,000 SF clinic houses a bright, energetic interior and serves newborns to age 18. As the newest source of state-of-the-art therapies and offerings on campus, the clinic was developed with rooms sponsored by the community. Clinic rooms were created through corporate donors and include a fully-functioning concession stand, a doctor’s office, a dentist’s office, a hair salon, a hotel/apartment room, and an in-house mini grocery store with cashier line.
- A motor skills room was designed for sensory seekers and includes a climbing wall, a suspended swing, large spaces with tunnels to crawl through, bikes to ride, tents to play in, and organized storage spaces.
