The two-building, 20-unit complex is located off Broadway, within walking distance of Everett Community College.
Designed by ARC Architects, the project was awarded a 2015 NAHRO Awards of Merit and Award of Excellence. CDK Construction was the general contractor.
Each unit has a front porch and front door. Shared stairs to the second-floor units extend out to a courtyard with a protected play court.
Many families at Pivotal Point are survivors of domestic violence, and the play court was important feature. There is also a covered bench where mothers can watch their kids. A shared laundry has an adjacent meeting room for families to use.
The site also has offices for EHA and a satellite office for Everett Police Department.
Construction was funded in part by the Washington State Housing Trust Fund.
The project was designed to exceed the state’s Department of Commerce Evergreen Sustainable Development Standards.
Other member of the project team are: Swenson Say Faget, structural engineer; KPFF Consulting Engineers, civil engineer; Travis Fitzmaurice, electrical engineer; Greenbusch Group, mechanical engineer; Swift Co., landscape; JRS Engineering, building envelope.
