STRATFORD HOUSING AUTHORITY

Location: Stratford, Connecticut
Area: Various
Completion: Ongoing since 1995

DESCRIPTION
The Stratford Housing Authority has been an ‘on-call’ client of Antinozzi Associates for over three decades with numerous projects ranging from small renovation and upgrade projects in the residential units (interior door/frame replacements, new bathrooms, boilers and water heater replacements, stairs, kitchen upgrades) to larger projects (a new administration building, major roof replacement, vinyl sliding replacement, sidewalks, window replacement).

The complexes where this work has taken place include Elm Terrace Apartments, Robert F. Kennedy Apartments, Shiloh Gardens, Hearthstone Apartments, and Baldwin Apartments. In 2008, we completed new bathroom and kitchen renovations, roof and window replacements, and siding for Hearthstone Apartments, with only one change order requested by the owner for $1,576 for a $688,000 contracted amount. We have recently completed kitchen renovations and roof replacement projects at two other residential complexes. In late 2012, we were awarded the design work for the Authority’s Meadowview Manor $5M facility improvements – now complete. The scope of services included numerous exterior/interior renovations such as bathroom and kitchen renovations, and door, window, roofing and siding replacement.

Within our On-Call contract with Stratford Housing Authority, Antinozzi Associates was also awarded the design work for the $3.5M renovations at Shiloh Gardens. The scope of work for this project includes numerous interior and exterior miscellaneous improvements. In 2018, the design work for Shiloh Gardens was submitted to CHFA for funding.

“The Stratford Housing Authority has worked with Antinozzi Associates on many projects. In fact, the Authority has used them virtually exclusively since 1981. Antinozzi Associates has designed a host of projects for us, including the design and construction of two elderly rental developments, major interior and exterior renovations, any minor design work we needed, as well as our current office building.

When the Authority received stimulus money from the federal government and had to make sure the design was expedited and the work completed on a short time schedule, Antinozzi Associates was our natural choice. Antinozzi is also great to work with when you have budget concerns or need work done in a hurry. Their client service is exceptional. As a recent example, the Authority called on Antinozzi to perform a Capital Needs Assessment in conjunction with a State of Connecticut rehab application. We were given a very short deadline and Antinozzi completed the required work very quickly, allowing the Authority to submit its application on time.”
