Bread for the City Project receives ENR Award

September 15, 2011


Washington, DC - The Bread for the City project received an award from Engineering News-Record for Best Small Project in the Southeast region.

The judges chose 35 winners from a group of more than 100 entries from Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas, Alabama, Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.

Bread for the City offers five program services to low-income residents of Washington, DC: food and clothing distribution, primary medical care, legal advice and representation, and comprehensive social services. All services are free of cost to eligible DC residents, and are provided under one roof in an atmosphere of dignity and respect.

Turner's Special Projects Division built the 12,500 square foot, two-story masonry, glass and steel addition adjacent to their 9,700 square foot historic facility (a former lumber warehouse.) A swatch of insulated glass separates the brick masses of new and old construction – and the new facility features four interior openings (two at each floor) between the new and old buildings. The large exterior perforated aluminum sun screen over the entry recalls the marquee of the Broadway Theater that graced the site years ago.

The modern and clean facility reinforces their motto: Dignity - Respect – Service, and assists Bread for the City in fulfilling their mission of helping DC residents to the tune of more than 10,000 people each month.
