Breakthrough Phase III

J&S Construction completed construction on Breakthrough Phase III, a 7,315 square-foot project that included the construction of two residential buildings in Knoxville, Tenn. The smaller building contains four efficiency apartments while the larger building contains two 3-bedroom units, each with a large activity area and staff living quarters.

This project was constructed through HUD Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities. Through the Section 811 program, HUD provides funding to develop and subsidize rental housing with the availability of supportive services for very low- and extremely low-income adults with disabilities.

The purpose of the Section 811 program is to allow persons with disabilities to live as independently as possible in the community by subsidizing rental housing opportunities which provide access to appropriate supportive services. Breakthrough Corporation has developed this cul-de-sac community to serve as housing for autistic adults.

The project budget was established prior to the completion of the design drawings. Thus, the design was constrained primarily by the budget.

Through multiple meetings between J&S Construction and ACHW (Adams Craft Herz Walker), the architect of record, the drawings were modified to reflect cost-savings measures identified by J&S Construction in order  to meet the project’s budget.
