Allana Buick & Bers, Inc. was selected by the Housing Authority of the County of Santa Clara (HACSC) to provide investigation, design and construction phase services to the Deborah Drive Apartment Complex located in Santa Clara California.
Deborah Drive is a four unit apartment complex consisting of one and two bedroom homes that was built in 1998.
Allana Buick & Bers prepared a Capital Needs Assessment (CNA) for the physical condition of the entire complex. The report provided to the HACSC identified ADA requirements, physical needs, remaining useful life of key components, milestones for replacement, deficiencies that affected the property’s use, structural and mechanical integrity and future physical and budgetary needs. The recommendation was to perform a complete renovation of all building components. The $416,000 rehabilitation project included a complete replacement of windows, roofs, all sidings, interior renovation of individual residential units and landscaping.
Allana Buick & Bers’ scope included reconfiguration of unit layouts and furniture/fixture replacements throughout. A new energy-efficient HVAC system was designed and installed along with high efficiency tankless water heaters. The residential units were provided with water conserving plumbing fixtures, electrical upgrades, ADA compliance, landscaping, seismic upgrades, and low voltage upgrades.
