Description

The Guilford Day Resource Center is a new construction, 3 story building with a Day Resource Center that provides services to the homeless on the ground level and 35 units of single efficiency apartments on the 2nd and 3rd levels. 

Amenity spaces on the ground floor include a warming kitchen, dining area, a pantry and donation storage center, administrative offices, counseling offices, reading areas, laundry facilities, computer stations and a medical suite. 

Guilford is a LEED Silver Community.  Why did we go through the extra effort to comply with LEED for Homes?  Because, it is our mission to improve the community in which our designs are built and LEED standards ensure that our buildings run more efficiently, are cost effective, good for the environment and promote healthy living.

 

LEED-certified buildings are designed to:

  • Be healthier and safer for occupants
  • Conserve energy and water
  • Reduce waste sent to landfills
  • Lower operating costs
  • Reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions
