Opening its doors in the summer of 2017, the Judge Guy Herman Center for Mental Health Crisis Center addresses the City of Austin and Travis County’s growing need for emergency psychiatric services. Operated by Integral Care, the center will provide support for first responder and emergency healthcare services by creating a new point of access for psychiatric crisis care.
The center was developed in collaboration between multiple local healthcare organizations, including Central Health and St. David’s Foundation, and will provide individuals experiencing a behavioral health crisis with short-term emergency psychiatric stabilization in a secure and protected residential environment. Bartlett Cocke General Contractors was selected by Travis County Integral Care to serve as Construction Manager-at-Risk for this single-story, 12,000 square foot center.
The building is sited on a sloping lot adjacent to Central Health’s Southeast Health and Wellness Center, also built by Bartlett Cocke General Contractors and shares supporting site access points. Poor soils dictated deep belled piers supporting a precast concrete floor deck. Conventional framing clad in stone and plaster with a complex metal roof configuration.
We are proud to continue our mission of delivering higher purpose facilities through the successful completion of the Judge Guy Herman Center for Mental Health Crisis Care.
