The North Sound Behavioral Health Organization (NSBHO) provides publicly funded behavioral health services in Island, San Juan, Skagit, Snohomish, and Whatcom counties. This new 10-bed stabilization center, with support and recovery spaces, serves voluntary sub-acute detox patients throughout Island County.
The mechanical system design included high efficiency variable speed gas furnaces with Direct Expansion (DX) cooling to serve the facility. Ligature resistant diffusers, grilles, and plumbing fixtures were provided in all patient areas. The mechanical system was controlled by a non-proprietary Niagara Direct Digital Control (DDC) system. The system was configured for ease of use by the end users and can be serviced by multiple vendors in the area should maintenance be necessary.
