SMRT will provide full service healthcare engineering for the design of a new state psychiatric hospital to be located in Berlin, Vermont.  SMRT’s medical facilities engineering team will design the structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection engineering.  The building’s systems will be engineered to optimize energy efficiency and operational savings. SMRT is teamed with architecture+ of Troy, New York, to replace the former Vermont State Hospital in Waterbury, closed last summer due to flooding by Tropical Storm Irene.  In announcing plans to move forward with the replacement mental health hospital, Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin said, “We are bound and determined to rebuild Vermont better than Irene found us in every way, and that includes our mental health delivery system.”
