New Hope Community/Woodland Terrace Revitalization
As part of the federal HOPE VI housing program, the Pleasantville Housing Authority received a grant to replace aging public housing with new housing.  The New Hope Community comprises 140 wood-framed, one- and two-family homes, with twelve building types derived from four basic layouts.  SGH was the structural engineer of record and was selected in part due to our knowledge of and experience with Optimum Value Engineering (OVE), although ultimately the developer elected to utilize standard wood framing details.
