Housing Authority of the City of Bridgeport

Location: Bridgeport, Connecticut
Area: Various
Completion: Ongoing
Design: 2009 – Present

DESCRIPTION
Awarded an on-call contract for design services in May 2009, our firm’s first task was to provide condition survey reports and cost estimates for various properties throughout the City of Bridgeport under consideration for purchase by the Authority. This effort is part of the Authority’s strategy to replace former public housing units which were abandoned and demolished. Antinozzi Associates compiled a team consisting of architects and a cost estimator to inspect numerous residential properties, identifying items requiring repair/replacement and compiling cost estimates for the work.

In addition, we completed two feasibility studies as part of this contract. One was planned to be a conversion of an abandoned convent constructed in 1931 into an 8-unit apartment for victims of family abuse. The other was for an existing building that would include six 2 and 3 bedroom housing units plus a health clinic.

In 2010, we did interior stair renovations for Charles F. Greene Homes on Highland Avenue. The complex consists of 270 living units in five, 7 story buildings. We were brought on to repair the two stairwells that are in each building. In 2012, we completed roofing replacements for the Harborview Towers complex on Washington Avenue. The complex is a three winged, 14-story hi-rise, with 240 units.

In 2014, various alterations and renovations were also made to Boston Commons Apartments on Boston Avenue. Our on-call contract was recently renewed through 2015.
