6TH STREET PLACE
Big City Compassion: Mercy Housing chooses modular for support housing
When complete, 6th Street Place will be a six-story modular residential development for LA’s homeless with 94 units and 1,800-sf of retail space. The concrete and wood building will have amenities such as a community room, outdoor courtyard, and office space for on-site support services.
DCI Engineers is designing the foundation, framing, stud and shear wall, mild reinforcing, post tensioned concrete, and modular layout plans to fulfill the design criteria.
- DCI used the Force Transfer Around Openings (FTAO) analysis method for exterior wood shear walls, to reduce the amount of hold down connections, as well as to give more flexibility to the design team regarding MEP exterior wall penetrations.
- Project is funded by Proposition HHH.
