                  It has been over a year since Superstorm Sandy hit New York City and brought to light a number of vulnerabilities in the city’s housing stock. To address the resilience challenges faced by the city’s multi-family housing stock and develop strategies to facilitate their implementation, the NYU Furman Center has embarked on a project to identify cost-effective retrofit solutions for affordable multifamily buildings. The Furman Center launched the effort Saturday, January 11th, 2014 with its Retrofit Solutions Workshop. The workshop brought together over 60 experts from a variety of disciplines, including architects, engineers, building operators, code experts, cos­­t estimators, city officials, and representatives from FEMA. Workshop participants focused on three specific buildings in Superstorm Sandy’s surge area--selected to be broadly representative of the city's building stock--and will allow the retrofit solutions to be applied to similar buildings across the city. In addition to developing retrofit recommendations, participants also considered the regulatory, cost, and design barriers that could prevent the implementation of the building retrofits. The recommendations from the Retrofit Solutions Workshop will be available later this year in a report by the NYU Furman Center, which will include proposals for the regulatory changes and financing models to help building owners implement the retrofits. The design solutions will also be on display at an exhibit at the AIANY in June 2014. The project is being conducted in partnership with Enterprise Community Partners and the American Institute of Architects NY Chapter (AIANY) and is funded by the NYC Housing and Neighborhood Recovery Donors Collaborative.
