This project involved extensive rehabilitation work. Precise scheduling, purchasing of materials and subcontracts, and a coordinated implementation plan were crucial, as most of these senior citizen units were occupied. Work included installation of new kitchen cabinets and counters, bathroom vanities, GFI electrical outlets, a/c sleeves and units, vinyl floor and base, faucets and appliances, and painting.
Exterior renovations included: replacement of steel lintels and masonry; installation of new flashing, caulking and grouting; new roofing membrane for the main roof and for both towers and community center roof; installation of metal panel fascias: new entrance doors and rolling gates.
Three existing boilers that service the complex were removed and replaced, steam traps were replaced on ten risers in each building, and two new emergency generators were installed.
