Construction Starts on New Headquarters for Community Action Group
Process—————15 May 2012
Construction has started along Fifteenth Street in Southeast DC for a new headquarters building for a local non-profit. The Community Action Group provides social services for residents of their neighborhood. In 2008, while undergoing renovation, the existing building occupied by the Group suffered a structural collapse and was subsequently razed. The Community Action Group's new sixteen thousand square foot building will hold offices for twelve staff members, a multipurpose room, dining area and fitness room. The ground floor will be used for the assembly of constituency meetings and other social events, while the second floor will house staff offices and training rooms.
Studio Twenty Seven Architecture is working with local general contractor MCN Build on this design-build venture.
