Project Description

Behavioral Health of Cambria County is a non-profit organization responsible for overseeing the behavioral health of its members.  The organization expanded its facilities when it relocated to a vacant 8,000 sf former retail space on the first floor of Central Park Commons.  The new location provides a more prominent presence within the community to bring mental health out of the shadows, increase awareness, and provide an accessible and welcoming environment for services. Its large conference room overlooks Johnstown’s Central Park while private offices for confidential work are not prominent.  The historic downtown building is in a floodplain, requiring the use of metal stud walls. It also required limited environmental remediation. The conference room and an even larger training room are available for community organizations and group meetings.  These rooms were strategically located with controlled access points to allow their use independent of the office areas. The space also provides a waiting room, reception area, private offices, lounge, storage, and restrooms.
