Our Work in Action
After Hurricane Sandy brought fire and flood to Breezy Point, NY, IBTS provided construction inspection services for the New York City Build it Back (BiB) program. IBTS’s support resulted in hundreds of rehabilitated and elevated homes that are flood- and fire-resistant and compatible with the historical and architectural context of the community. Check out IBTS’s Breezy Point work in this video from a mobile workshop we conducted as part of the 2017 American Planning Association (APA) National Planning Conference.
