William J. Carroll Government Center

Public Health & Social Services Center | Design-Build | 36,480 SF | Tilt-Up construction

VACAVILLE, CALIFORNIA, USA  The William J. Carroll Government Center houses Health & Social Services programs including: 

Employment & Eligibility Services | Primary Care Clinic | Mental Health Clinic | Women Infants & Children | Dental Clinic | Substance Abuse Services | Special Investigations Bureau | Child Welfare Services/Older Disabled Adult Services | Public Health Nurse

Combining these services creates a space that is more convenient and cost effective for low-income Vacaville residents reducing transportation needs and saves users time and money. Casting aside the restrictions that Tilt-Up construction can place on the design of a building, a sophisticated and surprising pattern was added by including geometrically placed reveals in the panels in both horizontal and vertical directions. Paired with a bold colored wainscot, the team was able to create a quality design that is not only interesting to look at but also thought-provoking. The result is a little building that packs a big design punch. With Turner Construction.
