Project Description

The Redfern Houses consists of nine buildings, 6 and7-stories high located in the Rockaways, Queens NY. This Queens development has 604 apartments that are home to some 1,780 people. As a result of Hurricane Sandy, the Redfern Houses Development sustained significant damage including power loss and flooding. Under this project, the Redfern Houses will receive Category III repairs which require comprehensive potential storm surge remediation, and replacement of various mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems within the Boiler Plant and mechanical rooms on grade which are at or below the Design Flood Elevation (DFE) as determined by FEMA. New main electric service rooms located above DFE are part of the scope of this project. This project will include provision of an emergency stand-by gas-fired generator located at the roof of each building, connected to the new main electric service. Also required is the design of a new raised boiler plant and modifications and flood-proofing of existing mechanical rooms by use of flood barrier devices on all openings below the documented storm surge  elevation.

D&B has been selected to provide construction management services for this development as part of D&B’s on-call Sandy Repair CM contract.
