    In the Spotlight

    PMA joins Sentara | Hampton-Newport News Community Service Board in Crisis Center Groundbreaking Ceremony

    Last week, PMA was happy to celebrate the groundbreaking of the new BJ Roberts Behavioral Health Center in Hampton, Virginia. We've been working closely with Sentara Health and the Hampton-Newport News Community Services Board to produce an expanded crisis receiving center for our community. the adaptive reuse project creates a space that effectively supports and uplifts employees and patients as they navigate a path towards empowerment and a healthy future.

    To make the best use of existing space, our team worked with the CSB’s departments to determine crucial adjacencies, space needs, and anticipated future growth. From here, we “test fit” these departments into the building footprint until arriving at a design solution that took into account best proximities and efficiencies and, most importantly, what best serves the community. The project allowed the dispersed departments to move into one building housing a long-term Crisis Stabilization Unit, 23-hour patient care, emergency services offices, public/family care offices, court hearing room and support space, adult care coordination, and prevention services.

    PMA's Design Concept

    Our design for the new facility is derived from "Dawn" - the rising sun marking the beginning of a new day as night comes to an end and the sun breaking the horizon as a symbol of hope. Being part of this team and helping to create a place of dignity, respect, and development for those who need it most is what community service means to us.
