Kensington Homeless Shelter
Lahmon Architects has created the design of these beautiful and sustainable buildings. EcoSteel will be providing structural engineering and prefab/ architectural systems to house individuals and families that are homeless. There are three of these 6,800 SF prefabricated homeless shelters that leverage the speed and costs benefits of warehouse style construction combined with attractive Architectural Design.
Under the visionary leadership of the City of Lancaster and County of Los Angeles, workers will break ground on the shelters of Kensington Campus, a fourteen-acre paradigm shift in ending the lack of a permanent solution to homelessness. This development proves what true public-private partnerships can accomplish by fast-tracking a solution that will come to fruition in 15 months, instead of the typical eight years. As yet another first from the City of Lancaster, Kensington Campus will serve as the model for other municipalities who are motivated to mitigate homelessness today, and in the future.
EcoSteel was chosen to Design, Engineer & Supply the steel structural systems and architectural roof and wall panels that are pre-finished and pre-insulated ready for fast assembly. We are enhancing the end walls of each building with Trespa Meteon facade panels attached over our insulated steel wall panel.
