THE GHA RAPID REHAB TEAM
GHA Rapid Rehab Scattered Sites was a complex project requiring coordination between three or four active sites at a time. The WEAVERCOOKE
affordable housing renovation team was considerate of residents while also maintaining an aggressive schedule and implementing Rapid Rehab
techniques on a large scale. The entire GHA team had the drive and adaptability to meet the project’s challenges, all while being considerate of the
fact that they were working every day in people’s homes.
This Greensboro Housing Authority renovation project
involved extensive affordable housing renovations to 645
units at nine different sites across the city of Greensboro.
The interior of each unit was completely redone, and the
exteriors were given new finishes and fixtures. All
ADA/UFAS units were modified to be in compliance with
current codes and requirements.
This project had an aggressive schedule, with the first 495
units required to be completed within nine months of
breaking ground. Utilizing management and scheduling
techniques modeled after the Lean Construction principles,
our team met this ambitious goal.

even years—it can take to rehabilitate an apartment complex using
traditional methods, they often won’t return to the area once the
renovations are complete. By allowing residents to remain in their homes
during the rehabilitation, with minimal off-limit days, we were able to
provide affordable housing renovations without disrupting the existing
The residents served by the Greensboro Housing Authority are now
enjoying a higher standard of living without the need to undergo any
serious disruption of their daily routine.
