Lund-Ross served as the Construction Manager at Risk for the expansion of the Siena/Francis House campus near downtown Omaha. The Siena/Francis House is Nebraska’s largest homeless shelter, providing food, clothing, and medical services for men, women, and families.
Lund-Ross built three new structures for the Siena/Francis House. Two new residential facilities house a combined 48 dorm-style efficiency units for single adults. Each 320-square-foot efficiency unit features a sleeping area, kitchenette, and private bathroom. Meals and various support services are made available to permanent housing tenants by the Siena/Francis House. Sustainable features like low-VOC paints, high-efficiency HVAC and lighting, and rooftop gardens were used throughout the project.
A new 10,000-square-foot community services center was also built for the Siena/Francis House. The center provides shared administrative space, classrooms, and offices for 70 local nonprofit agencies that partner with the Siena/Francis House to support Omaha’s poor and homeless.
The expansion of the Siena/Francis House campus was completed on schedule by Lund-Ross in November 2012.
