The 12,000 SF health center for the Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians provides a wide array of services under one roof. The center offers doctor and nurse practitioner services, a diabetes program, nutritional services, exercise room, substance abuse counseling, and domestic violence response programming. Nearby nature trails offer added opportunity for wellness. The health center is located across from the tribe’s gym and recreation center and puts all of the HBMI health services in one building.
In addition to design of the building, WBRC provided architectural coordination with local utility companies, site design of new parking lot, circulation areas, and stormwater treatment systems. The project required submissions to the Maine Department of Environment Protection (MDEP) and the Town of Houlton. The center was designed to meet LEED Silver specifications.
