Build-It-Back/Sandy Recovery Program (The LiRo Group & NYC Department of Design and Construction)
Our participation in the program centered on homes in Coney Island and Gerritsen Beach. The scope of our design work on a dozen homes emerged from our study of the individual structure. All houses are elevated to meet current FEMA regulations, half were reconfigured with floors added to recover floor space lost from elevating the structures. The designs provided ADA accessibility to the house.
