Vanir is providing master architect and construction management services for Kern County’s new psychiatric health facility. The locked building will provide a safe and secure environment for adults and minors who are experiencing an acute psychiatric crisis. The project includes a 26-bed adult inpatient facility and a 20-bed adolescent inpatient facility.
The building incorporates modern design concepts that promote recovery and wellness and provide connectivity to nature through natural light, window views and landscaping. The design also promotes a residential ambiance and strives to minimize the institutional features typically associated with a locked psychiatric unit.
