CM as Agent for Justice Sonia Sotomayor Houses


HAKS is providing CM as Agent services to the New York City Housing Authority for $100 million of comprehensive improvements to the Justice Sonia Sotomayor Houses in the Bronx. The public housing development, completed in 1955, consists of 1,497 apartments in 28 seven-story buildings.

Serious water infiltration in building envelopes throughout the development caused serious issues such as crumbling sheetrock, collapsed ceilings and mold.  To remediate these issues and to address other Local Law 11 violations, work will entail intensive masonry repairs to all buildings and bulkheads as well as replacement of parapet walls with railing systems and all roofs. Specific repairs will include window replacement, rehabilitation of bathrooms, replacement of gas risers and sanitary sewer lines, repair and replacement of finishes in water-damaged apartments, replacement of compactors, upgrades to building entrances and lobbies, security system upgrades and replacement of water tanks in Buildings 9, 14 and 27.

A significant portion of the five-year project will involve abatement activities requiring air monitoring and environmental inspections.
