IDeA was recommended to Allied Real Estate Partners, LLC as the architect to renovate the property as part of a HUD #223 (f) LIHTC piolet program accusation rehab of the 221 unit property. Nevada Housing funds were included in the deal along with their energy improvements for the property. 5% of the units were brought into accessibility compliance. One of the project challenges was the noncompliance with required Fair Housing project requirements from the original construction. IDeA worked to minimize the extent of renovation to existing bathroom tub surrounds lacking backing by lobbing HUD as to the options available for retrofitting while saving the existing surrounds all in good condition. Careful analysis of the existing hydronic heating system allowed reuse of copper piping infrastructure to create a domestic hot water loop, saving energy and water.
