VA Oakland Mental Health Clinic
HY Architects completed the renovation of an existing 15,000 SF, LEED certified two-story building to be converted to an outpatient mental health and substance abuse clinic.
The new facility includes a multitude of functions including: exam rooms, occupational therapy rooms, group therapy rooms, administrative offices and conference areas, a day treatment room/ multipurpose room with a simulated home kitchen environment, physician offices, waiting room and secured pharmacy. We also provided rooms for specialty functions and equipment for the VA police department and homeless program.
In keeping with the original LEED accredited program and the clients’ sustainability goals, we reused existing building materials, utilized energy-efficient light fixtures, energy-star appliances, zero VOC paints, dual-flush toilet fixtures, automatic faucets and dispensers throughout the clinic.
