Here is what's new.
Part of a major development initiative in Redwood City, Calif., Indigo Apartment Homes opened in 2016 to provide luxury apartment living with world-class amenities. The multi-use structure consists of three residential towers rising seven stories over a three-story base. The building features 463 residential units, 10,000 square feet of retail space, one level of underground parking and two levels of above-grade parking.
Joseph J. Albanese, Inc. performed demolition and grading for the project. By controlling both scopes, we were able to shave time off the project schedule for the client.
The mass-excavation portion of this project included a tight schedule and varying levels of contaminated dirt on a 100,000-square-foot site. This meant that JJA had to work quickly while also ensuring materials from the different excavation areas were transported to the correct dump sites. Coordination of trucking and equipment in a block-long hole can be difficult. Just as challenging was working around existing utilities while providing finish grading for the building pad and offsite sidewalks. But JJA was able to get the job done—and safely!
