Allana Buick & Bers, Inc. provided design and construction management services for the repair and renovation of the 48 acre Marina Harbor apartment complex.
The 846 units are built on a one level concrete podium that serves as parking for tenants and guests. The common areas between the units consist of 24 1-acre spaces for recreation, gathering space, swimming pools and spas. Each podium has a twelve-inch (12?) structural slab with a built-up asphalt system above it and a topping slab of two and a half inches (2.5?) poured over the built-up system. In order to make the necessary repairs, the topping slab was demolished. The columns below the podium deck were reinforced with a pre-cast form system and carbon fiber wraps around the columns to provide the code-required strength.
Allana Buick & Bers concurrently construction managed the facade replacement of the building window slides and patio deck repair and renovations. Allana Buick & Bers improved the waterproofing and drainage system design on the podiums, saving the owner over $2.5M through value engineering studies on this $40M renovation project.
