MEP Engineering (MEP) is proud to announce its involvement in the completion of Denver’s “Tiny Homes Village”, a community of 11, 8 by 12-foot structures for people who are experiencing homelessness. MEP donated nearly 100 hours of time to provide plumbing, electrical and heating systems for the homes. Some of the work included solar and generator options (so the homes aren’t dependent on an electrical grid), and a self-contained water reclamation system.
Travis Middlebrooks and Byron Blake, both professionally certified engineers at MEP, took the lead on the engineering solutions for the homes.
POSSIBLE QUOTE: “We were approached by Radian Inc., a local architecture firm serving nonprofits, to put our skills to work, and we were happy to do so,” said Middlebrooks. “Our firm is dedicated to supporting the community, and this project provided us with the perfect way to help provide much-needed shelters. We wanted to devise designs that could serve as templates for future shelters, and also provide mobility and flexibility for continued use.”
The village is located at the intersection of 38th and Walnut Street in the RiNo Art District and is a place for 14 people to live.
