The 801 Men’s Shelter won the Chesapeake Shores Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors: Excellence Award for the Institutional ($25 to $100 Million) category in its 2022 Excellence in Construction competition!
The new St. Elizabeths East Men’s Shelter replaced the existing homeless shelter at 2700 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue in the Ward 8 Anacostia community located in Southeast Washington, DC. The Design-Build team consisted of Coakley & Williams Construction, in a joint venture with Blue Skye Construction. Thirty DC CBE’s worked on this project, as well as 280 District residents. This DC Department of General Services (DC DGS) project is unique because of its Historic and community aspect. The shelter provides 380 beds daily with a mission to develop a building that supports the health and wellness of the local community. The unique, three-winged design features 85,600 sf that includes a multipurpose room, health care clinic, and large kitchen that can be used for culinary learning, a teaching barbershop, clothing boutique, and computer center. These areas were intentional for developing retail training, barbershop training, and varying levels of professional development to provide further opportunities for homeless people to gain work and life experience.
