GMS has teamed with Nelligan White Architects for the New York City Housing Authority Repair and Resiliency Projects at three NYCHA complexes (Baruch Houses, Lavanburg Homes, and Carey Gardens) to repair the existing damage from Hurricane Sandy and provide resiliency upgrades to mitigate against future natural disasters. The project will include façade repairs, interior renovations, steel repairs, stormwater management and flood control, retaining wall repairs and MEP equipment repairs and upgrades.
At Carey Gardens, a Community Services Center (CSC) will be constructed to house a new central heating plant and a community center, which will double as a command center during adverse events. The project is estimated to be completed in Q3 2020.
At Baruch, a new central heating plant (CHP) will be housed in a single story structure of approximately 5,600 sf adjacent to Building 7 and will feed Lavanburg too. GMS is providing additional structural services for an alternate CHP design that will use Con Ed steam in lieu of boilers. The project is estimated to be completed in Q3 2021.
