The Courtyards on Orange Grove is a retrofit of an older motel property to affordable housing, located in Sacramento. Housing Tools conducted labor monitoring throughout the project’s construction process for the developer, Mercy Housing California. This included review of the Davis-Bacon Wage Decision and contracts for project setup, review of weekly payroll certifications and conducting on-site interviews during construction, and project close-out to resolve any outstanding issues. The project completed construction in the summer of 2020.
Sunseri Construction is a general contractor with affordable housing making up a significant portion of its workload. Sunseri approached Housing Tools to assist with managing its federal and state labor compliance procedures for its publicly financed projects. To address this need, Housing Tools created a Labor Compliance Guide, which is a comprehensive guide with resource materials and template letters and forms that can be applied to projects with federal and/or state labor requirements. The guide includes bid request documentation, contract labor conditions and forms, a Section 3 and Equal Employment Opportunity compliance guide, and resources such as a Davis-Bacon handbook, State HOME Labor Standards Manual, payroll certification form, and federal labor standards posters.
