Selective interior and exterior renovation work was implemented in a continuously occupied 102 unit housing complex.
Brookside is the oldest housing cooperative in Connecticut, and the project represented the first major renovation since its constructions. The project team worked closely with the coop members, whose representatives attended every meeting throughout the two-phase project, and with the non-profit community organization retained to manage the process. The work scope included replacement of site paving, roofing, windows, kitchens, bathrooms, and flooring. Customized designs were created for disabled residents for whom the standard accessible code provisions did not work. Tenants were able to review proposed designs in the form of three-dimensional computer models. The work was implemented without having to relocate residents from their homes.
