Durham County Human Services Complex

This 244,000-square-foot complex houses Durham’s consolidated Social Services, Public Health and Mental Health Departments and serves as a county-wide meeting space. Located in an underdeveloped part of downtown, the Durham County Human Services Complex is an important part of the area’s revitalization. A bluestone and granite paved interior courtyard offers employees a large gathering space that honors the requirements of visibility and security while enhancing the relationship between the interior and exterior. The project is pursuing LEED Platinum certification.
