Hurricane Ike Housing Recovery Program Rounds 1 & 2 | Southeast Texas Regional Planning Commission
• $95M and $190M, respectively
H2Bravo supported SETRPC with program and construction management of over 1500 single and multifamily housing units. We coordinated with 26 local communities in the three-county area to develop a systematic process for the design and construction of rehabilitation, elevation, and reconstructed housing units for applicants that qualify for the program. Using a streamlined and high production focus, we developed a series of standard housing units based on the Program Guidelines with a vision for providing a high-quality product that conforms to all the representative building codes, accessibility requirements, and fair housing standards. Our team overcame significant challenges on a tight schedule including interaction with building officials, Texas Department of Insurance Windstorm requirements, historic preservation issues, floodplain management requirements, and unique design criteria. The project scope included developing a data management system, procuring a list of pre-qualified residential contractors, conducting site visits to develop work write ups, preparing plans and specifications, building code review, conducting contractor training, preparing bid packages and bidding, conducting pre-bid conferences, making construction contract awards, conducting pre-construction conferences, making progress inspections, processing pay applications, and project closeout.
