Latham Centers, Inc. offers nationally recognized, innovative treatment to special needs children in a tranquil and beautiful setting on Cape Cod. Surrounded by quaint buildings near the Town of Brewster’s village center on historic Old Kings Highway, Latham Centers operates comprehensive residential, educational, and treatment services. Coastal Engineering, as prime consultant for Latham Centers, worked with their lead architect to develop a Master Plan to address the Centers’ current and future growth needs. Working with the architect and Latham Center’s Executive Director, Coastal developed a build-out scenario for site planning based on a building needs assessment and program developed by the team. This included siting new schoolhouse and dormitory buildings, additions and renovations to the historic Administration Building, additional parking, improved handicap-accessible routes, and an on-site sewage treatment and drainage for the entire campus. Upon completion of the Master Plan, site plans were prepared for environmental and town regulatory reviews, with subsequent completion of civil and structural engineering plans as required for bidding and construction. The project was developed in phases to accommodate funding and operational considerations.
