Rare Early HUD Start, Ongoing Collaboration Allows Southeast's Premier Multi-Family Housing Construction Company to Finish a Top-to-Bottom Renovation of 116 Apartment Units and Build a Brand New Community Center on a Highly Accelerated Schedule While Also Maintaining Its Industry-Leading Service and Quality Standard
ROSWELL, GA--(Marketwire - May 1, 2012) - Amid supply chain issues, regulatory red tape, work stoppages and other barriers that have plagued the construction industry at large, one builder has defied the odds by completing an extensive 116-unit apartment complex renovation and new Community Center construction in just 6 months from contract to completion. Taylor Commercial, Inc. (www.TaylorCommercial.com), the leading provider of apartment and multi-family housing renovation and exterior construction solutions in the southeast, today announced it has completed comprehensive renovations of Raleigh Gardens' 16 apartment buildings (116 total units) and finished its newly constructed Community Center within budget and well in advance of the deadline thanks to a uniquely accelerated HUD project start.
"This was a North Carolina Housing Finance Authority LIHTC project with city bonds and HUD funding," said Perry Greene, Taylor Commercial's President. "In a rare opportunity, HUD allowed our firm to start the project before the closing, resulting in an extremely expedited timeline. This was accomplished without any compromise on the quality of the workmanship and the high level of service we are known for. We're appreciative to have had yet another opportunity to work with the property owners, Eddy Benoit and Rusty Snow of The Benoit Group, and secure their vote of confidence in the hiring phase."
In addition to a brand new Community Center facility, Taylor Commercial provided Raleigh Gardens' residents with wholly renovated apartment units. Upgrades and enhancements of the large-scale initiative included mechanical components, cabinets, flooring, fixtures, windows, doors, siding, steel work, concrete, paint, asphalt, stripping, roofing, site drainage, and landscaping. The builder strategically completed the project in three phases allowing residents to move into the completed units and freeing the pending units for the renovation work. By project end the property was 100% fully resident occupied.
"HUD worked hard on this project and had an excellent working relationship with the NCFHA and the Professionals at the City of Raleigh throughout," Greene notes. "Many different organizations and entities worked together to overcome obstacles as they arose, which proved integral in making this entire project a resounding success."
