As part of its commitment to help its homeless population, the City of Dallas selected Satterfield & Pontikes Construction as its contractor for construction of the city’s new homeless center. S&P was selected by the city, in part, due to its successful partnership on several other important projects, including the City’s new police headquarters. Because the five-building center had to meet the standards for Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) Silver certification, it was important for the City to select a contractor capable of building to the rigorous standards of the U.S. Green Building Council. Previously, S&P had successfully delivered two LEED-certified facilities for the City.
Scope of work on this project included:
Bed space to accommodate more than 300 people
Office space for as many as 75 employees
A full kitchen/cafeteria
A recreation/TV room
Restrooms and showers with 24-hour accessibility
The uniquely designed center was built on a tight, brownfield site requiring experienced and skilled planners and supervisors to clean it up and make it usable for new construction.
