New York City Build It Back
Recovering from Superstorm Sandy
In 2012, Superstorm Sandy impacted New York City and surround region causing massive devastation to the housing stock. In response, the City immediately implemented the Rapid Repairs Program, which provided basic home repair services to allow residents to shelter in place for the months following the storm.
SLS was a prime contractor in RRP, and based on its success, was subsequently selected to take part in the Build It Back Program, which was New York’s permanent housing recovery initiative. Build It Back encompassed the most affected areas of the City, with the goal of rehabilitating, elevating and reconstructing as much of the housing stock meeting HUD CDBG-DR recovery criteria as possible.
Location: New York City (Staten Island & Queens)
Client: New York City Department of Design & Construction
Type: HUD CDBG-DR
Value: $292 Million
Units: 750+ Homes
SLS was engaged as program and construction manager for BIB in the boroughs of Staten Island and Queens and tasked with implementing and managing the permanent recovery of homes through various methods, including site-built structural work, as well as innovative modular home replacement.
SLS is responsible for the complete oversight of design, engineering, procurement, contractor selection and contractor management, as well as program compliance, meeting all required HUD CDBG-DR standards and regulations. SLS was given the more challenging homes in the Program in terms of location, logistics and work scope and has worked diligently with City staff to implement innovative solutions to accomplish program goals as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Modular Home Construction
Successful Implementation As We Build It Back
In support of the Build It Back Program, SLS has successfully implemented a modular home construction program in New York City.
Modular home construction in New York City has presented many logistical challenges including overhead lines, narrow streets, crane activity in residential neighborhoods, and multiple agency coordination.
SLS has provided solutions for all challenges and estimates that this modular program has shaved months off of the traditional reconstruction time-frame in NYC, as well as provided a lower cost construction alternative for the program while adding previously untapped construction capacity to the Build It Back Program.
SLS successfully coordinated modular construction with the following agencies:
New York State Department of State
NYC Department of Buildings
Port Authority of New York and New Jersey
NYC Department of Transportation
Metropolitan Transit Authority
New Jersey Department of Transportation
Pennsylvania Department of Transportation
NYC Parks Department
