CAMH has been working with an award-winning team of architects on the development of the Facilities Master Plan and design
of the new inpatient units.
The team, known as Community Care Consortium (C3), is composed of three Toronto architectural firms: Kuwabara Payne McKenna
Blumberg Architects, Montgomery Sisam Architects Inc., and Kearns Mancini Architects Inc. They were selected after an extensive
selection process in which they presented their vision for CAMH's urban village. The architects' work focussed on translating
the Functional Program into a physical plan. They have tested their vision for the site against the Functional Program to
make sure that the two mesh and that all the activities proposed for the site have the facilities that they require.
Some of the first activities for the architects have been the design of the Alternate Milieu (AM) inpatient settings and the associated
patient care building settings.
