About the Project
The County-owned property located at 1212 S. Irving St. is a detached three-level single family home that is approximately 3,800 square feet. This existing residence is aged and in deteriorating condition and will be demolished and replaced with a new two-story family home of approximately 3,000 sf.
The new home will provide a permanent residence to Arlington adults (approximately 6 individuals) with developmental disabilities. It will be staffed 24 hours a day with Daily Support Professionals (DSPs) who will assist each resident with activities of daily living and care. The DSPs will be supervised by a House Manager and Program Manager.
Per the objective of the County’s Facility Sustainability Policy, the new home shall be designed and constructed to be energy efficient with excellent indoor air quality and will achieve Net Zero Energy ready certification. To achieve this objective, the new home will be well-insulated with energy efficient windows, energy recovery ventilation, a geothermal heating and cooling system, and other energy and water efficient building components.
