Gawron Turgeon Architects renovated 43,000 SF of this former Bath Iron Works industrial building for the consolidation of Sweetser’s 12 existing programs into one location. The remaining 25,000 SF was planned for tenant space.

In keeping with the unique character of the region, the building was designed with an ocean and water theme. A water feature welcomes visitors at the main entrance, and waves of seaside colors and shapes echo throughout the building.

The Sweetser Family Institute provides support and resources for individuals with emotional or behavioral disorders, psychiatric disorders, substance abuse issues, mental illness, mental retardation or developmental disabilities.
