The Porterville Developmental Center includes eight single-family residences, constructed in 1953, and two staff duplexes, constructed in 1958, to provide housing for senior staff members who would be on 24-hour call. This project would rehabilitate seven of the single-family residences and both duplexes to bring them up to current fire life safety and energy codes. One single-family residence will be left as-is. The residences are contributors to the National Register-eligible Porterville State Hospital Historic District, and therefore the project has been designed to meet the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. Work includes, but is not limited to, as required: replacement of hardscape (driveways, walkways, patios, etc.), installation of perimeter drainage, repair of footings where settling has occurred, and replacement of fencing; replacement of interior flooring. walls, ceilings, and trim; replacement of countertops, backsplashes, some cabinetry; fireplaces. mantels. hearths to be restored but new gas fireplace inserts installed; removal of window mounted A/C units, HVAC wall mounted units, and swamp coolers; installation of new condensing units and rooftop A/C units; replacement of windows, repair and/or replacement of exterior and interior doors; abatement and replacement of all asbestos and/or deteriorated siding; repair of chimneys; and replacement of roofing.
