Newark Housing Authority Northward Elderly Sites


HAKS provided architectural and engineering services to repair building envelopes and replace roofs at the Newark Housing Authority’s Northward Elderly Sites at Foushee Towers, Stephen Crane Elderly and Baxter Elderly for a total of 11 high-rise buildings varying in height from 10 to 15 stories.

The $11 million project entailed investigation and physical needs assessment of all roofs, bulkheads and building envelopes. We evaluated field information, prepared preliminary sketches with locations of problematic areas and prepared construction documents for the roof replacements and exterior waterproofing. Masonry probes, roof core tests and HAZMAT investigations were performed on all buildings. A detailed report of findings, prioritized with budget estimates, was submitted to the Newark Housing Authority. HAKS also provided services for the bidding and negotiation phase and the construction administration phase.
