Superstorm Sandy Recovery


Project Summary

In late 2012, Superstorm Sandy caused extensive damage to the northeastern United States, particularly the New Jersey coast, leaving many homes destroyed or uninhabitable. In response, New Jersey initiated the HUD-funded RREM Program to rebuild and restore qualified homes to resilient conditions.

SLS was selected as one of several prime contractors for recovery and was responsible for the permanent reconstruction, rehabilitation, and elevation of homes in the affected areas. Collaborating with the DCA and program managers Gilbane and CB&I, SLS provided comprehensive design-build services, including assessments, architectural and engineering design, permitting, procurement, construction, and subcontractor management.


Operating within HUD CDBG-DR standards and guidelines, SLS efficiently constructed homes within expedited timelines. They also engaged with homeowners and stakeholders throughout the state to ensure homes met aesthetic, quality, and safety standards mandated by the program.
