King County Request for Information: Modular Shelter Facility

King County’s Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS) is seeking information that will inform a future Request for Proposals (RFP) for the project development and ongoing services and operating costs for a modular shelter facility, composed of factory-constructed structures for residential use.

This Request for Information (RFI) is intended to solicit information regarding the timeline, cost and feasibility to construct and operate a modular shelter facility expected to operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  The facility should meet the immediate shelter and enhanced service needs of 50 to 100 adults including their pets and belongings. This includes hygiene (laundry, shower and restrooms), storage facilities, and communal dining space for the residents. The facility should include individual units, accommodations for couples, and congregate areas.
