ARC Hurricane Shelter

In 2009, Spring Engineering, Inc. was commissioned by The ARC Nature Coast to design a facility that provided educational and independence training for adults with developmental disabilities. The project also was to serve as a safe haven for this often overlooked community in their most vulnerable state during hurricane events. Energy efficiency, safety, health and occupant comfort were focal points in the building’s design, laying the positive foundation needed for The Arc’s customers to thrive. In 2011, this unique hurricane shelter project was completed and in 2012 was awarded the certification for LEED Gold for new construction.

The scope of work provided for this project included but was not limited to: programming, site design, storm related enhancements not associated with typical commercial design, 3D renderings and new construction.
