Title

The Gathering Inn Transitional Housing Project

Format

SOECS Senior Project Demonstration

Abstract/Artist Statement

Four senior engineering students at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, formed ARRK Engineering for their Engineering Synthesis class. They currently work in conjunction with the Sacramento Professional Chapter of Engineers Without Borders on The Gathering Inn Transitional Housing project. This project will provide a new facility that will help homeless men reintegrate society in Roseville, California. ARRK Engineering agreed to take responsibilities for the site development, the design of the site layout, and the structural design of this new facility. It will be a one-story wood-framed building incorporating energy efficient systems such as photovoltaic panels to supply the estimated 2 kilowatt electrical demand. Ten Sharp poly-crystalline 200 watt panels (ND-200U1 module) will be placed in two rows in the middle of the south facing roof. Excess energy generation will be credited to project. The major living elements of this building include three bedrooms, an exercise room, a laundry area, a kitchen, a social area, an office, a conference room, a reception area at the entrance of the facility, and a three-car garage next to the kitchen. Since The Gathering Inn has not purchased land for this facility, ARRK Engineering selected a theoretical site in Stockton for the purpose of the class. As a result, ARRK Engineering will comply with the regulations set by the State of California, the City of Roseville, and the City of Stockton.
