The three-story psychiatric facility is nestled on a spacious 3.9-acre site to help create a calming environment. Certified medical staff offer crisis intervention services and treat adult and geriatric patients with memory issues, depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress as well as mental health and substance abuse issues. Sixty semi-private and private rooms span the second and third floors.
Engineered to achieve LEED NC 2009 certification, energy-efficiency and flexibility were key goals in designing the central energy plant. TLC engineered two high-efficiency 160-ton air cooled chillers to serve the facility’s 320-ton cooling load. Emergency provisions are addressed by a 750-kw diesel-fueled generator with a 10,000-gallon tank.
