Abstract:

Hanscom Air Force Base AFB proposes to design and construct a single story 4,000 SF Mental Health Clinic Addition to existing Building 1900. The existing Mental Health Clinic is located in Building 1217 and shares the building with several other Base functions. The space available to Mental Health is significantly less than the identified requirement, and the quality of space is not acceptable. The facility was constructed in 1955 and is beyond its economic life. In addition to designing and constructing the addition, the proposed action includes site specific activities related to environmental protection, utilities, pavements, restripingreconfiguration of existing parking lot, vehicular and pedestrian access from the existing parking lot, demolition of existing drives as required and landscaping. The Environmental Assessment EA prepared for the proposed action addresses the site specific construction of the Mental Health Clinic Addition to Building 1900. The EA evaluates the consequences of the proposed action on both the natural and man-made environments. The proposed action can have a positive and cohesive impact on Hanscom s medical activities. Once the addition is fully operational, the area will continue to be designated as Medical Use. The new Mental Health Clinic Addition will maintain a clean looking Clinic facility appearance by utilizing elements from the adjacent Clinic and other structures within the base.
