Bailey’s Shelter and Supportive Housing was designed to support Fairfax County’s goals of reducing energy and water consumption, as well as their carbon footprint, while providing a healthier facility for the building’s occupants. Completed in 2019, this innovative new facility provides emergency shelter beds, permanent supportive housing units, 24-hour staffing, including guidance and counselling, and a hypothermia prevention program.
On November 2, 2021, the building achieved LEED Gold Certification. Features include water use reduction through the use of low-flow fixtures, energy efficient HVAC systems, efficient ventilation, green power offsets, high solar-reflectance roofing materials, vegetated roof system with native plantings, daylighting, regional materials, recycled content materials, and low VOC interior materials.
