Among daily operations and maintenance, Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) are always working to improve or modernize their public housing infrastructure. Whether aiming to maintain the quality of living environments or reduce utility bills, optimizing facilities plays a crucial role in developing affordable, comfortable, efficient and safe homes for current and future residents – but it doesn’t come without its challenges.
