Groundbreaking Ceremony Planned for Renovation
Posted 10/29/10 (Fri)
Heartview Foundation, the most-experienced, private, alcohol/drug treatment and education center, in the state of North Dakota and the surrounding region, will hold a groundbreaking ceremony at:
101 E. Broadway
Monday, November 1, 2010
Since its inception in 1964, Heartview has provided services to over 24,000 patients and family members. Monday’s ceremony will mark the beginning of a large-scale renovation project of Heartview’s existing building. The entire building will be remodeled, except the recently renovated Residential Unit. The estimated cost of the project is $700,000, funded in part by a grant from the Tom and Frances Leach Foundation.
The remodeled building will provide more offices, larger meeting spaces, a private urine collection room and adjoining laboratory, renovated public restrooms, a private waiting area, and a new entrance.
According to Executive Director Kurt Snyder, “The new entrance will be a structure built of translucent glass to radiate the light of hope and recovery. The door to recovery is the most difficult for patients and their families to open and walk through. The entry will be designed to be a special place – a beacon of hope for those coming to Heartview for services.”
The project architect is Dave Nelson of Leaf Designs. The general contractor is Dakota West Contracting Inc. Cofell’s Plumbing, Heating and Excavating Inc. and Edling Electric are the major subcontractors.
