ORB is passionate about designing attractive, comfortable and affordable housing for our communities. Throughout the past 50 years, ORB has worked closely with public housing authorities, college and university facility management departments, various branches of the military, as well as federal, state and municipal agencies. We have conducted major renovations, upgrades, repairs, new home designs, and modernization projects for more than 100 multi-family and senior housing facilities.
A large number of these new housing designs and renovation projects were for affordable housing communities, designed to either HUD affordable housing standards or HUD public housing modernization standards (Handbook 7485.2). Over the past decade, ORB has specialized in building envelope upgrades that not only modernize the appearance of housing, but improve energy efficiency and upgrade weatherization to add years of life to housing properties.
