    Pima County is currently in the design phase and the design is scheduled to be completed October 2022. The construction timeframe is anticipated to be between 12-18 months and start December 2022.

    Project Description
    The new facility will provide the PCOME and staff the appropriate space required to meet the current increased demand and allow for future growth within Pima County and the region. The public interface will be developed to improve the experience as many of these interactions are highly sensitive. The artwork will be located within the central courtyard (approximately 3500sf). This key experiential feature will be accessible by community members receiving services and will be visible from the public spaces inside the building. Artwork medium must be durable in an outdoor environment with exposure to rain and sun.
