Meeting the Modern Needs of Behavioral Health

Outdated and in need of renovation, CPMC’s behavioral health facilities at the Davies Campus were no longer adequately meeting the rising behavioral health demands of the local community. In particular, the space required design elements that met modern safety requirements and therapeutic considerations for patients and staff.

As a fully operational hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic, significant challenges were present throughout. Existing condition assessment and lack of access issues were accounted for early. As additional deficiencies came to light during demolition, Herrero actively utilized pull planning to improve scheduling and proper sequencing of work. Revising schedule efficiencies when possible and educating the entire project team through direct communication helped drive project progress.

Specific elements of the floors include:

  • Acute attention to material, furniture and finish selection to avoid patient manipulation and prevent self-harm or harm to others.
  • Full window replacement, including additional structural steel picture framing to support the 2,000-pound impact-rated glass.
  • A 625-square-foot third floor gazebo to give patients secure access to fresh air and sunlight, and to supplement the program’s healing activities.
