Brock Mission is a homeless shelter for men that includes sleeping, dining and program areas. The three-storey building has been designed around a courtyard with access to natural daylight into every room and corridor. The building will accommodate 32 shelter beds and 15 independent living units, of which 25% are fully accessible. The building also includes a dining hall which will provide three meals a day all year.
The team worked closely with the client group to provide the most inclusive, home-like and durable building with a high level of energy performance exceeding the 2015 National Energy Code by 28%. Critical to the success of the project, has been the ability to meet tight budgets and schedules as the Mission has been without a true home to call their own for some time. The new Brock Mission shelter will open its doors in November 2020.
