Wold Architects & Engineers - Health and Human Service Design

Health & Human Services

Understanding these services from both government and healthcare perspectives allows us to reveal innovative ideas.

At the intersection of our government and healthcare architectural expertise lies our experience with health and human services facility design. Inclusive of various community organizations, service types in this category include, but are not limited to, mental health crisis centers, chemical dependency centers, rehabilitation centers, detox centers, WIC programs, public health departments, social services departments and jail diversion centers. Understanding these services from both government and healthcare perspectives allows us to reveal innovative ideas for our clients. We recognize that there is no one-size-fits-all solution for this facility type. Our clients' defined needs are as varied as the services they provide their respective communities, which is why we value internal and external stakeholder engagement throughout our process.

Regardless of building type, our team is dedicated to providing access to services for any individual in your community. We place a strong emphasis on accessibility for the public, including ADA compliance, links to public transportation, and calming environments for those experiencing the stresses associated with the services they are seeking.

Mental Health

Many of Wold's public sector clients have faced the complex challenges related to addressing mental health realities. We have been both inspired by and appreciative of the collaborations we've had with each community. One overarching challenge is eliminating the stigma regarding mental health by delivering effective treatment for those undergoing mental illness, specifically through mental health crisis centers. Going beyond the most critical reason for providing effective treatment, the centers we create also help alleviate the burden on emergency departments, criminal justice systems and correctional facilities that are often ill-equipped to deal with mental health-related situations.

Our team has the experience necessary to introduce facilities that shift the narrative surrounding mental health.

Why We Need Mental Health Crisis Centers

Chemical Health

Several factors go into effectively providing treatment for an individual undergoing chemical health issues and we believe the development of a safe and secure facility is one of them. By creating facilities that provide adequate treatment, we believe this can lower the amount of chemical dependency in a community. Our team is experienced in designing various chemical health building types, including detox centers, rehabilitation centers (voluntary or involuntary) and counseling centers.

Office Design
Health and Human Services Office Spaces

Whether an office is explicitly utilized for internal workspace or includes areas for public interactions and care, our team is devoted to providing an environment that emphasizes each client's unique needs. With experience in various health and human services office spaces, we have the skills necessary to suit your needs.

Health and human services facilities take their form in response to a wide array of public service needs and with that comes a variety of functional objectives for each client. Our team of architects and engineers can provide expertise for these unique spaces by capitalizing on our experience in both the government and healthcare sectors. With this experience and our understanding of your unique needs, we understand what it takes to develop health and human services environments that can be welcoming for those in need while also providing the safety and security needed for a government building.
