Precision General Commercial Contractors Set to Begin Construction on Rocky Hill Veterans Housing in Vacaville, CA
The $21-million project will provide much needed housing for chronically homeless veterans, and low-income veterans and families.
SAUSALITO, Calif., Jan. 29, 2017/PRNewswire/ -- Precision General Commercial Contractors is pleased to announce that Rocky Hill Veterans Housing has closed on its construction financing through Community Development Partners, with construction about to get underway.
As one of the only new affordable developments targeting veterans in Solano County, this project will expand regional housing opportunities for those with few affordable options.
Rocky Hill will consist of 39 high-quality permanent rental homes for people earning 15% to 60% of the Area Median Income. Twenty-nine units will be reserved solely for veterans, with the remainder having a veteran's preference.
The project is designed to achieve LEED Gold certification and the innovative structural system is comprised of modified steel shipping containers, which is stronger than typical wood framing.
"We're proud to be a part of this effort," says Thomas Dawson, CEO of Precision General CC. "The goal is to provide the best housing situation for these veterans while strengthening the community interactions by offering amenities such as community gardens, a central zócalo, and art installations that will be accessible to residents and people from the surrounding neighborhood."
The project is located at 582 Rocky Hill Road in Vacaville, CA, and is scheduled for completion in December 2017.
