Gafcon served as the development manager and project manager for the development of a new 67,000 square foot facility for the Downtown Women’s Center in Los Angeles. The project consisted of adaptively reusing an older building to provide supportive housing and support services to chronically homeless women.

Gafcon developed and maintained the project schedule, guided the Center through the early portion of the entitlement process with the City of Los Angeles, performed a property condition assessment and developed the first cut estimate based on the conceptual design prepared by the project architect. The project received the 2011 Los Angeles Conservancy Preservation Award.
