This new residential development consists of two five-bedroom group homes for developmentally disabled adults. The design team included the owner, Shrewsbury Housing Authority, the service provider, the Glavin Center, and the funding agency, the Department of Housing and Community Development. The challenge was to design homes that meet the special needs of the residents, provide a family environment, and fit into the established residential neighborhood. To meet this challenge within the very limited budget, the funding agency opted to use modular construction.
