AltaPointe’s comprehensive network of behavioral and mental health care facilities promotes the wellness and recovery of people living with mental illness, substance abuse and intellectual disability issues. Its continuum of care includes hospital, outpatient and residential psychiatric and behavioral services for children, adolescents, adults and senior adults.

The Goal: A Comfortable Behavioral Healthcare Facility

As a psychiatric facility, the furnishing needs presented a unique challenge – furnishings that are beautiful, comfortable and durable, yet don’t pose a risk of harm to the facility’s clients. Ultimately, the goal of the furnishings was to provide the feeling of “home” in this residential treatment facility.

After an extensive search for products that would meet the owner’s requirements, it was determined that Norix Group, Inc. would provide the furnishings. Consultative sales specialist Tommy Jernigan presented a variety of options to the design team. Working directly with Norix, furniture selections were made based on functionality, durability and aesthetics.

“In keeping with the goals of the owners, the design of the facility including the furniture was to incorporate materials and colors that evoke feelings of warmth and personality in lieu of the typical sterile environment found in many facilities,” Mac Walcott, with Walcott Adams Verneuille Architects, Inc., said. “The colors, finishes and style of the furniture helped achieve those goals by providing a comforting environment.”

Accessibility Goal

Furniture should accommodate people regardless of disability.

Functional Goal

Furniture should be strong, able to accommodate adults of all sizes, be comfortable and easy to clean and sanitize.

Aesthetic Goal

From the beginning, the goal of this renovation was to develop a facility that was welcoming, with a feel like home. The furniture was an integral part of ensuring this goal was met.

Secure/Safe Goal

Furniture should be structurally robust, tamper resistant and safe for patients and staff.
