Abstract/Artist Statement

The Stockton Shelter for the Homeless has faithfully served San Joaquin County since 1986. Located at 411 South Harrison Street, the Stockton shelter has separate facilities for single men, families with children, veterans, and those with HIV/AIDS. In 2016, the shelter observed a sudden increase in the local homeless population. To meet increased demand, the shelter has been operating over capacity, allowing clients to sleep on the floor in common areas. In 2016, the Shelter served 3,678 people, including 309 children, 257 families, and 122 veterans. In this project we designed a new Women and Family Complex to replace the existing facility. The project scope includes an administration building containing a dormitory for single women, two multipurpose rooms and six staff offices. The project also includes three family dormitories, a courtyard with a play area, and a new parking lot. The buildings were sized for 170 people. The dormitory for single women can house 28 people, and each family dormitory has 12 rooms that can house a total of 48 people. Structural designs were performed using RISA-3D modeling to analyze forces acting on the buildings, and adequate steel member selections were confirmed by hand calculations using the American Institute of Steel Construction and ASCE 7-10 standards. Appropriate foundations were designed to support the structures using ASTM and American Concrete Institute standards. Bearing capacity and settlement calculations were performed for the foundation design, and rebar reinforced square footings were designed to support the building frames. Low Impact Development features were designed in accordance with the 2009 Stormwater Quality Control Criteria Plan and the City of Stockton Standard Drawings. The rational method, Manning's equation, and the hydraulic element were used to calculate the site runoff and pipe sizes.
