Scope of Services
As part of the development team for this HUD Hope VI project, Environmental Design Group prepared ALTA surveys for use by HUD, equity partners and OFHA to fulfill various requirements. During the construction phase, Environmental Design Group provided layout stakes for various contractors during construction, Phase I and Phase II environmental studies and remediation of sensitive soils. Coordination with public utility companies were required to ensure the rerouting of utility lines did not conflict with future improvements.
The design team helped create a $53 million HUD-funded HOPE VI community revitalization project, which included 215 units in four phases. This mixed income project replaced the second oldest public housing development in the city of Akron.
