LEED Silver 2013

The Fallsway Housing and Resource Center is the product of a major renovation and adaptive re-use of an existing 2-story masonry warehouse structure to create a facility that provides emergency shelter, counseling, job training and social services to community members experiencing a personal crisis.

A 19th century, historic train depot located near the downtown district of Baltimore City has been revived to serve a new purpose as a crisis intervention center operated by the mayor’s Office of Homeless Services. The Fallsway Housing and Resource Center is the product of a major renovation and adaptive re-use of an existing 2-story masonry warehouse structure to create a facility that provides emergency shelter, counseling, job training and social services to community members experiencing a personal crisis. One of the significant challenges in the project was the limited amount of space on the urban site; which necessitated expansion of the building by developing an additional third floor level to accommodate the architectural program.

The Fallsway Housing & Resource Center has the unique distinction of becoming the first property owned by the City of Baltimore to achieve LEED Silver certification. The LEED program provided the guiding principles for incorporating sustainable strategies in the design of the 36,000 square foot facility.

LEED Silver certification was achieved through the use of energy efficient heating & cooling systems, vegetative roofing areas, recycled building materials, and environmentally safe products. The project LEED administrator was Gant Brunnett, Architects of Baltimore, supported in the effort by their consultants; RMF, Inc. (mechanical-electrical engineers), and the general contractor; Roy Kirby & Sons.
