Modernization projects in 2017
The BHA oversaw in excess of $1,000,000 of BHA energy-efficiency improvements that ranged from increasing attic insulation and weatherproofing, to exterior and interior lighting, to new boilers and hot water tanks. This work, which was accomplished at no cost to the BHA, greatly added to the comfort and safety of our residents.

Also in 2017, the Authority completed the following projects:

Replacement of elevator at Manning Tower    $ 787,866
Installation of new flooring at Manning Tower, Caffrey Towers and Belair Tower $ 184,881
Engineering services for the replacement of fire alarm systems at Campello High Rise
and Caffrey Towers
$ 95,200
Architect & Engineering services for comprehensive exterior renovations at
Hillside Village
$ 239,500
Replacement of windows and doors at Crosby Gardens & Walnut/Crowell $ 333,104
Engineering services for elevator upgrade at Crosby Gardens    $ 18,800
Engineering services for electrical upgrades at Kennedy Drive and Rainbow Terrace $ 41,750
Structural study at Kennedy Drive and Rainbow Terrace $  9,295
  $ 1,710,396

We continued development work at 932 Main Street in conjunction with the Southeastern Massachusetts Affordable Housing Corporation and the Brockton Redevelopment Authority. The original plan was for an office and two units of housing. Due to some restructuring at the BHA, an office became available and we repurposed the 932 Main Street office space as an accessible apartment. With updated architectural plans and zoning approvals, renovations moved forward.

We also performed large and small preventive maintenance projects that included:
Installing vinyl siding on two 3-family homes at 200-202 Forrest Ave and 65-67 Wyman Street
Replacing less efficient lights with LED lights in residence common areas
Replacing boilers, which qualified for energy rebates
