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. In this role,

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 timeframe 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

  • NYPD

  • FDNY

  • 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
