Develop recommendations for storm-proofing and hardening NYCHA sites (Gravesend, Surfside, O'Dwyer and Haber Houses.)
A&J designed new elevated central heating plants and new electrical switchgear rooms to withstand the effects of a future storm at our 4 NYCHA sites. We designed 25% design drawings, documented the damage of existing building systems, developed cost estimates, and specified the new replacement equipment.
