Originally constructed in 1979, the federally subsidized housing project was steel framed with metal studs and stucco exterior walls. With twenty years of wear and tear on the building not to mention the rising utility costs, the building was overdue for a renovation.
Architecture Plus was consulted by Rental Management, LLC to re-face the exterior surfaces, replace all of the single glazed aluminum framed windows, make the grounds safer and more secure.
A new energy-efficient four-pipe state-of-the-art HVAC system was installed. All of the windows and frames were replaced with very energy efficient frames and insulated glass. A new exterior insulated finish system was overlaid on the stucco which cut energy consumption by fifty percent. Security cameras, steel fencing and entrance gates completed the project in 2009.
