We have a diverse resume of projects, from simple structures to state of the art facilities, in both the private and public sectors.  Below are some of our larger projects.

E.J. Phair Brewery Retrofit & Shell TI's

The E.J. Phair Brewery Structural Retrofit project involved structurally retrofitting an historical 100 year old un-reinforced masonry building that once housed the first Ford dealership established west of the Mississippi River. The retrofit consisted of major concrete reinforcing, including over 2,500 epoxy dowels into the existing un-reinforced masonry, as well as a completely new roof diaphragm with major support members. Extensive hand excavation and ground water removal was required due to the existing basement that was inaccessible to traditional production excavation methods. These major upgrades were required to accommodate a fully operational brewing facility.

The original Breezehouse was manufactured in Oregon, delivered to Menlo Park, and built in Sunset Magazine's parking lot. It was Sunset Magazine's featured project home. Our scope of work included demolition of the existing residence, grading the lot, building the foundation, overseeing the delivery and setting of the modules from Sunset Magazine's parking lot, making all structural attachments between the modules themselves and the foundation, construction of several architectural decks and custom concrete planters, and construction of two detached garages. The Sunset Breezehouse was designed by Michelle Kaufmann Design and Sunset Magazine for green, healthy living.

LTVOR Miscellaneous Building Repairs

The Lake Tahoe Vacation Ownership Resort (LTVOR) Miscellaneous Building Repairs Project was a major renovation project performed at an active timeshare vacation resort on the shore of Lake Tahoe in South Lake Tahoe. This renovation included a full remodel and abatement in 142 of the 182 suites and a full reconstruction of all the exterior systems on the building.

The interior renovation involved demolition and reconstruction of select interior and exterior walls, and remodeling the entire suite with new high-end casework, granite, tile, lighting, plumbing fixtures, carpet and appliances. The end result was an upźdated look and feel that will accommodate the resort's guests for years to come.

On the exterior, all of the existing finishes and waterproofing systems were removed and replaced with new waterproofing membranes, flashings, doors, windows, siding and roofing. The new roofing system was equipped with a Bylin ice melt system, and a stone wainscot was installed around the base of the building to better provide for the harsh climate and snow build-up.

Other areas involved in the renovation were the resort's two cooling towers, mechanical systems, the pool area, and sitework improvements.

A major focus of our construction team was finding ways to renovate the interior and exterior of the building while accommodating the needs of the resort's guests. To do this, the construction project was been split into five stages in order to allow the guests to enjoy their stay while construction moved along in discrete work areas.  This work plan allowed the construction team to meet schedule and production goals, while having a minimal impact on the resort's guests and operations.

The construction team that worked on the LTVOR project, commonly referred to as “The Sierra Division”, is comprised of highly professional individuals specializing in renovating occupied buildings.  This team approach, combined with professional tradesmen and subcontractors, led to a successful project and very satisfied client.
