Guadalupe Behavioral Health Space Needs Study
The Architecture Company worked closely with the Pascua Yaqui Tribe and the Town of Guadalupe to develop a programmatic space planning report to be utilized as the basis of design for the town’s Behavioral Health Center. Working closely with Guadalupe’s Building Committee, The Architecture Company identified, analyzed, and documented key information derived from surveys and meetings to best suit the needs of the Community. During programming analysis, we examined functions and relationships between various departments. This analysis was used to determine a multi-phased plan. The first phase of the design allows the tribe to utilize the existing modular buildings on site and incorporates a new 14,000 square foot building to the south. Phase Two replaces the modulars with a second 8,000 square foot building addition resulting in a full build out for all departments. We established a flexible space planning tool to meet a five year outlook for facility needs and incorporated cultural elements into space planning.
