NYCHA Physical Needs Assessment

Owner: New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA)


Completion Year: 2017

As part of the STV | AECOM PNA Joint Venture team, Macan Deve staff provided Inspectors to assess all buildings within NYCHA Developments throughout NYC. Services included daily inspections of critical Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) Systems (heating plants, domestic hot water heaters, plumbing and electrical components), and Conveyance Systems (elevators) in all NYCHA Developments, including over 17,000 apartments.  Macan Deve participated in the evaluation of all assets to develop cost estimates, prioritize scope and determine ranking of upcoming repairs and modernization. The field investigation data and findings were compiled into an interactive data base and were queried by NYCHA to prioritize, identify, and group projects for modification construction contracts. Macan Deve staff also coordinated apartment entry with NYCHA Residents and attended public outreach Tennant Association Meetings.
