Project: Foundation House Apartments
Location: Seattle, Washington
Client: Dobler Management Company
Scope: Severe Water Damage Repair
Completed: 2007

A private Senior apartment complex had water penetrating into the building causing visible damage. An in-depth investigation identified the cause and extent of the water penetration and damage.

The units were to remain occupied during the repair work, which required schedule coordination to reduce the impact on residents. Based on a partial destructive investigation, CDA prepared construction documents that established extent and guidelines for determining what needed to be replaced, what could be cleaned up, and what did not require repair work. The existing exterior skin was removed down to the exterior sheathing which required the building to be enclosed in a temporary plastic membrane to prevent further damage to the building from exposure.

All work was completed in 10 months with minimal discomfort to the tenants.
