The state of California is facing a growing homeless population resulting in massive camp-like communities across the state. An estimated 129,972 people are experiencing homelessness on any given day and roughly 3,500-6,700 people in San Francisco alone are unsheltered and living on the streets.
In response, Mayor London Breed is moving forward to eradicate the situation by creating the third homeless facility in the Bayview area.
In late July, the SF Mayor announced plans for the newest Navigation Center of District 10 that will offer around the clock stay, permit people to bring their pets and partners and offer a more intense health and housing solution.
The structure will occupy 200 beds in a “ district that has the second-highest number of individuals experiencing homelessness,” says Jeff Kositsky, Director of the city’s Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing.
EcoSteel will design a custom prefab 23,000 sq ft metal building that will help to optimize space, decrease labor costs and simplify the building’s foundation with a structural support system. The project will be developed by Mike Bullman, Architect at the office of Charles F. Bloszies and constructed by Pankow Builders.
EcoSteel provides the prefab/architectural systems that will make the availability of interim houses for the homeless a reality. Our vision is to provide a beautiful, prefabricated steel housing units for those in need of assistance.
