Addressing needs of the homeless, a board of community leaders raised the capital to construct a new facility which would serve as transitional housing for Columbia’s homeless and disadvantaged. The board retained LCK as project manager to assist in due diligence for property acquisition, and feasibility analysis for development on the selected site. The property had formerly been the location of the Salvation Army’s homeless shelter, but had been abandoned for some time. Portions of the facilities had extensive mold and asbestos issues which factored into their potential for future use.
The scope of work extended to management of design and construction to partially demolish the former Salvation Army facilities, renovate the remaining 10,300 square foot kitchen and day shelter, and to construct new buildings totaling 34,000 square feet for barrack-type dormitories, a respite center for medically-challenged residents, and apartments for long-term residents.
