Built 1973, Marine Environment with a Marina

This property was once a very popular apartment complex before being converted to condos in the late 1980s. Design and construction flaws were chronic throughout. An expansive elevated wooden walkway system connected all floors which were badly deteriorated throughout. The Board of Directors struggled with the maintenance issues and contracted for several engineering reports by others to resolve the issues. All were stifled as the costs were out of reach for the community. The morale in the community was deteriorating as well. Flat roofs had more than 40 sump pumps connected to garden hoses as the only means to drain the ponding roofs. Massive rot was present in structural support beams; leaks through the building envelope had generated substantial mold conditions along with an extensive list of other challenges. The complex nature of the structure made it very difficult for stakeholders to understand and deal with the issues at hand.

Using our 3D modeling and BIM systems, these difficult to understand issues became instantly clear and manageable. Every unit required differing scopes of work and a carefully choreographed sequence which was available to all using our systems and a diligent management process.

Results: A good model (picture) can simplify complex issues. In the end this property was revitalized and made manageable for the benefit of all stakeholders.
