Supportive Housing Stabilization Initiative
Research project to assess the condition of a group of supportive housing developments in the Twin Cities metro area and to identify physical condition needs of the properties. As a result of the study, areas were identified for improvements that would help ensure the continued success of these supportive housing communities. This led to further investigation into building materials which generated the most problems for residents and maintenance staff. After a life cycle cost analysis of the seven most problematic building materials, recommendations were made to promote the use of quality building materials in future construction and rehab projects in order to reduce maintenance and replacement costs.
