AIA Columbus AAH Meeting: ADAMH Project Presentation

Register here.

Join the AIA Columbus Academy of Architecture for Health at their next committee meeting on January 26!  At this meeting, we will hear from NBBJ about their work with ADAMH to design a facility for adults needing critical mental health or addiction services.

Each year, 21% of Franklin County’s 1.3 million residents will experience mental illness, while demand for mental health and addiction services is expected to increase by 23% over the next 10 years.

To address this critical need in our community, the Alcohol, Drug, and Mental Health Board of Franklin County (ADAMH) partnered with Franklin County Public Facilities Management to build the Franklin County Crisis Care Center. Located in Franklinton with an expected opening of 2025, the $60 million facility will be a central destination for adults in mental health and/or addiction crisis who need facility-based crisis stabilization services.

Once completed, facility operator RI International will integrate peer support into all levels of care including an urgent care clinic, 23-hour observation, and inpatient services. The 72,000 SF facility will feature 60 observation positions and 16 inpatient beds. The ‘no-wrong-door’ design strategies aim to provide an environment of care that is safe, welcoming, recovery-oriented, and is as non-restrictive as possible.

NBBJ led architectural, interior, and landscape design. Behavioral Health programming and planning was led by architecture+. IMEG and Korda are the design engineers.

AAH will also be touring this project on February 1, 2024.  Learn more and register here.
