Avita New Behavioral Health Center, Gainesville GA

A New Behavioral Health Center in Gainesville

Project consisted of a new $10.6 million behavioral health center in Gainesville, GA. The 45,000 SF multi-function facility is located on a 9-acre site off of Old Cornelia Highway. Construction is currently underway and completion is expected in April 2021.

This facility serves regional mental health patients with three distinct treatment levels.  A walk-in, walk-out area serves patients who may need minor counseling, along with a 23-hour observation area and an access controlled Crisis Stabilization Unit, where patients can be held for up to six days to manage their mental health.  Complexities in this facility range from comprehensive anti-ligature design components to coordinated access control and security monitoring components.

Hussey Gay Bell provided programming and full architectural design, structural engineering, permitting, bidding and construction phase services.  Civil engineering was provided by a subconsultant.
