Fairwinds at Brighton Court is a Leisure Care senior living community located in Lynnwood, WA. The building was built in 1989 and an additional wing was added in 1991. Fairwinds is a fully three-story wood framed building with 55,000 sf of living space with both independent and assisted living services within a full service community including dining, social, and recreational activities. In addition to some verified water intrusion issues the 30 year old building was due for a major rehabilitation as part of their long term maintenance program. After assisting the Building Envelope Consultant during a general condition survey of the building, Tatley Grund provided comprehensive pricing based on the Architect’s scope of work. After and in person interview, Tatley Grund was selected to perform the work on under a negotiated contract agreement.
The contracted scope of work included a full removal and replacement of the entire building envelope, including new windows, new sliding glass doors, new fiber cement siding, new building trims, penetration waterproofing details, new interior and exterior sealants, and targeted repairs to the main entry porte cochere. Further the work included replacement of damaged wall and roof sheathing, along with damaged framing, which were discovered after the removal of the existing exterior cladding. In the end the entire building was painted as the final step completing the full exterior building rehabilitation project.

The project started in the summer and the work continued through the fall an winter by using a combination of fixed frame enclosed scaffolding along with pump jack access equipment. Since the building was fully occupied during the entire process, the communications with the Owner and the communication, and scheduling, with the residents was extremely important to mitigate the impacts of the work on the residents and to maintain the project schedule. These impacts included construction noises, removal and replacement of windows and sliding glass doors, interior access to the individual apartment units and their daily routines. Over all the project went very well. The residents were excited when they were able to see the updated look of the building, and the Owner was very complimentary of Tatley Grund regarding our attention to detail and especially in regard to our communication and ability to perform the work on a fully occupied community such as Fairwinds at Brighton Court. The project completed under budget and the project was completed within the contracted duration.> Back to Institutional
