We have embarked on a major renovation of our landmark 20,000 square foot homeless service center on Skid Row. Our goal is to provide an enhanced and holistic continuum of services within a place of shelter, dignity and hope for the homeless on Skid Row.
The scope of the project includes an enhanced reception area for improved access and assessment; new computer and job resource lab; the expansion of living areas; a major kitchen upgrade; additional office workspaces; parking lot resurfacing, and an exterior facelift.
• 300 Photovoltaic solar panels power the entire facility, become a source of DWP credits,
and offset 24,000 tons of carbon per year;
• Highly insulated, reflective roof uses 40 percent less energy to keep the building cooling;
• High-output mechanical systems, including HVAC, lighting fixtures and compact fluorescent
bulbs reduce energy consumption;
• ‘Low-e’ windows and skylights control heat and add light;
• Zero VOC paint and coatings are less harmful to human health, and reduce landfill, groundwater
and ozone depleting contaminants;
• Water-conserving toilets reduce water use by 400,000 gallons per year;
• Restored hardscape and drought-tolerant landscaping will reduce water consumption.
There are Naming Opportunities available.
