Project Description:  Modernization of Irvington Village complex by renovation of existing buildings and construction of new community center and maintenance facility.

The original 27 building, 318-unit apartment project was constructed in 1943.  Phases I, II & III are complete.  Phase IV construction was started January 14, 2002; Phase V started construction in June 2002, and Phase V-A will start construction in September 2002.

Phase IV and V work included the design of new metal plated wood trusses designed to span the existing flat roofs (4/12 30 foot clear span with 6 foot overhangs, UL class 90), reinforcement of new slab opening to support HVAC systems, exterior wood framing for canopies and gable roof features.

Phase V-A includes a new community center, administration building and maintenance building. In addition, this project will undergo asbestos and lead paint remediation.

Phase V-A work included the design of a new maintenance building, using load bearing masonry walls, hollow core concrete plank decking and metal plated roof trusses.  New metal plated trussed roofs similar to the residential roofs were designed for the community center building and administration building.  Work within the administration building required the removal of a mezzanine level floor, structural fill in of a partial basement and the design of a new structural slab.
