Client Deep River Housing Authority
Project Type Multi-Family
Location Deep River, CT
Size 26 Unit Addition
Kirtland Commons is an affordable elderly and disabled housing development with 26 existing 1-bedroom units. We aimed to build 18 new units to meet the growing housing needs of the town of Deep River.
We were able to follow local and regional building codes to accurately update the construction documents. We worked closely with the builders and the client, advising on energy efficiency and material specifications throughout the completion of the renovation.
Many features were updated to maximize the energy-efficiency of the complex. We installed new Energy Star rated windows in all units, as well as added extra insulation to the building’s exterior. We replaced the old vinyl siding with a more durable and appealing fiber cement. Finally, we installed a new natural gas heating system to replace the old oil system.
