The Key to Successful Affordable Housing Projects: Choosing the Right General Contractor

Affordable housing projects play a critical role in addressing the housing crisis, providing much-needed homes for individuals and families. Whether motivated by a desire to contribute to the community or to take advantage of the various incentives associated with these projects, selecting the right general contractor (GC) is pivotal. At Haycon, we understand the intricacies involved in affordable housing projects, and our experience, partnerships, and expertise make us the ideal choice for developers aiming for success. Here’s why choosing the right GC is crucial and how Haycon stands out in the field.

Strong Relationships with W/MBE Sub-Contractors

One of the key factors in the success of an affordable housing project is the quality of work delivered by subcontractors. At Haycon, we prioritize building strong relationships with subcontractors, particularly those classified as Women-Owned Business Enterprises (WBE) and Minority-Owned Business Enterprises (MBE). These partnerships are not just about meeting regulatory requirements; they are about ensuring high standards of quality and performance. Our proven track record with WBE and MBE subcontractors speaks volumes about our commitment to diversity and excellence. We carefully select and collaborate with these partners to ensure that they meet the specific needs and standards of each project, thus ensuring that every aspect of the construction process is handled with the utmost professionalism and care.

Experience with Boston Residents Jobs Policy (BRJP) Projects

Navigating the compliance requirements of the Boston Residents Jobs Policy (BRJP) can be challenging. This policy monitors the participation of local residents, minorities, and women in private and public construction projects within the city. At Haycon, our project management team is well-versed in the intricacies of BRJP compliance. We hold subcontractors accountable, ensure timely reporting to the BRJP Monitor, and strive to meet all criteria efficiently. Our familiarity with these processes helps streamline project execution, saving time and money while keeping projects in good standing with the city. This expertise ensures that we not only meet but often exceed the expectations set forth by the BRJP, providing our clients with peace of mind and a seamless construction experience.

Familiarity with the Mayor’s Office of Housing (MOH) Requirements

The Mayor’s Office of Housing (MOH) has specific requirements that developers must meet, especially regarding the selection of a general contractor. At Haycon, we are intimately familiar with these requirements. We understand the importance of gathering comprehensive information about the GC’s experience, current and recent projects with the City of Boston/MOH, ongoing construction projects, and evidence of bond capacity. Our extensive portfolio and thorough documentation allow us to provide all necessary information expeditiously, ensuring that our clients’ applications are in good standing from the outset. This familiarity and readiness set us apart, allowing developers to move forward with confidence, knowing that they are working with a GC who understands the MOH’s expectations and can meet them effectively.
