RZAPS is a participant with the LiRo Group in New York City's
Build It Back (BIB) program, an effort to recover from the damage inflicted by Hurricane Sandy and to make affected homes and communities more resilient in preparation for future storms. The BIB program is helping 12,500 families from the hardest hit waterfront communities by rebuilding and elevating 1,400 homes to today's regulations for flood compliance. RZAPS designed and oversaw the construction of a number of detached homes in Brooklyn. The work involved redesigning, elevating and renovating the homes and is required to meet new stringent flood-resistant standards set by the Federal Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA).
