$2.8M Multi-Family Housing Preservation & Revitalization Project Completed
Five Building Rehab Project – End Results – Happy Clients

Dane County Housing Authority (DCHA) hired FGS as the general contractor for a 5 building/54 unit project in three separate cities; Stoughton, Verona and DeForest. This rehabilitation project was vital for the Dane County community to replenish and continue the inventory of much sought-after, up-to-date, low-income housing. 

With the scope of work varying slightly from site to site, depending on the specific needs of each, all 54 units received a complete general makeover.

The building exteriors were updated with new:
  • Roofs
  • Siding
  • Windows (Stoughton only)
  • Asphalt parking lots
  • Gated dumpster enclosures
  • Storage sheds (Verona & Stoughton only)
  • Landscaping
  • Exterior lighting
Interior updates included:
  • Plumbing
  • Electrical
  • Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT)Flooring
  • Kitchen cabinets and bath vanities
  • Laminated and cultured marble countertops
  • Doors and trim
Common Rooms
In Verona and Stoughton, existing community rooms were remodeled as well, adding complete handicap accessibility for the Verona occupants.

Handicap Accessibility
One unit at each site was remodeled to make it handicap accessible, featuring a roll-in shower and a fully accessible kitchen. As part of the goal to make all the properties more handicap accessible, new automatic door openers were added at all three sites.

Solar Energy
The development team turned to solar energy to help offset the electricity usage, a first for subsidized housing in our area. LED Smart Lighting was also incorporated.

Resident Relations
This rehab project proved a challenge from beginning to end for the residents who called it home.  The residents, their belongings, and their lives were temporarily displaced and inconvenienced during the construction process. Resident belongings were carefully packed and stored in secured pods on the premises.  Staff considerately volunteered to take care of house plants at our home office.

Despite the disruption, many residents expressed their gratitude for the efforts of the Housing Authority to improve their living situations.  The interaction between workers and tenants was inevitable, and in some instances proved invaluable.

Congratulations to the team of experts who guided the project through its duration to an on-time delivery and successful completion!
