Ware Malcomb San Diego was chosen to provide civil engineering, surveying, and architectural design services for the demolition and replacement of La Posada’s three existing buildings. The three new buildings will total 13,800 square feet and serve as housing for up to 100 homeless men and farm-workers.
The new freestanding wood-framed, stucco, slab-on-grade buildings will feature a design that reflects the California Mission-style architecture. There will be a covered outdoor dining patio with a barbeque area as well as an inner courtyard for special events and leisure. With an open floor plan and private quarters, the interiors will consist of dormitories, an office area, a medical treatment room, locker rooms, showers, a dining hall and kitchen. The dormitories will be constructed with exposed wood rafters and open ceiling.
Sister RayMonda Duvall, Executive Director of Catholic Charities Diocese of San Diego, shares, “There are so many people excited about the new La Posada facility. The buildings are important to the men in our program and to our efforts to provide shelter and reintegrate them back into society.”
The General Contractor is RSM2 Contractors, Inc. and the anticipated project completion date is May, 2013.
