Affordable Housing Rehabilitation

Wednesday, Sep 21, 2016

Most of New York City's affordable housing stock was constructed over thirty years ago, before better insulated, ventilated, and resilient buildings became a requirement. Other city properties may date back a hundred years or more and are subject to incomplete renovations. Compounded by sometimes inadequate maintenance and lack of funding, many of these properties are in need of significant rehabilitation. Additionally, given the economic challenges that many affordable housing tenants face, reducing energy expenses is of high significance. There is an imperative need to rehabilitate these buildings for better energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality, resiliency, and affordability.

In this month's Forum, we'll discuss the New York City challenge of sustainable affordable housing rehabilitation. Our speakers will share their experiences in meeting this challenge, from making the rehabilitation feasible, designing it, and then demonstrating results.

Sponsor: GreenHome NYC

Speakers: Christoph Stump, V.P. of Design and Construction - Trinity Financial; Sofia Palha de Melo, Senior Energy Engineer - Steven Winter Associates; Andrea Mancino, Project Manager - Bright Power, Inc.; + Jaime Alvarez, Project Manager - Paul A. Castrucci, Architect
