The Parc Cristal Condominiums is a (6) unit, high end, condominium complex on the southeast slope of Queen Anne hill in Seattle, WA. Tatley Grund Inc. (TGI) competitively bid this large rehabilitation project to remove and replace of all existing cladding, windows, large sliding glass doors, swing doors, skylights, waterproof membranes, and guardrails at all elevations. The work included extensive deck and building wall framing repairs as well as structural framing upgrades at the decks and soffits to allow for proper installation of the new deck guardrail systems. TGI was not the low bidder, but through the recommendation of the Owner’s consultant, and upon an interview with the Parc Cristal Board, TGI was selected as the General Contractor for this rehabilitation project.
Owner: Parc Cristal Condominium Association
Consultant: Amento Group
Contract Value: $1.8M
Project Duration: 15 Months
In addition, Tatley Grund Inc. (TGI) was awarded additional work to renovate the lobby, and common hallways, including new carpet, lighting, trims, painting, and wood accent wall trims. Access to the work was via fixed frame scaffolding with full weather protection enclosure. After installation of the new fiber cement rain-screen cladding, application of new sealants and painting of the entire building were performed.
The project started in late winter of 2021 and the work continued through the winter and into the spring of 2022. The biggest hurdle during the project was the expansive overhaul of the exterior wood framed decks and repairs to the damaged wall sheathing and framing. Most of the decks were very large and required large scale structural upgrades to repair damaged framing, bring framing up to code compliance, and to add structural blocking/strapping to allow for the new fascia mounted aluminum guardrail systems at the decks. The interior finishes and the expectations of the Owners occupying the units throughout the project required constant communications, schedule sequencing revisions, and notifications to the individual owners to ensure the project could continue to progress, while also accommodating the daily routines of the owners living through the construction work. Overall, the project went very well especially when most of the work was performed during COVID-19 protocols. TGI has received multiple written compliments from the Owner’s Association and all the individual owners were amazed at the new look to their building when the project came to completion.> Back to Multi-Family
