Hayward, California

W | A Associates, Architectural, Structural Consulting and Construction Administration services
Client: Eden Housing, Inc.

 

Constructed in 1972, Josephine Lum Lodge, Eden Housing's first project, consists of a 150 unit senior residential complex set in 19 single and two story buildings. The Eden Housing Management Group requested that W | A Associates conduct an assessment of the existing conditions of the buildings, including a seismic evaluation.

W | A Associates performed an investigation, identifying water damage, the condition of the building envelopes, structural evaluation, and a recommendation for repairs.

 

W | A Associates also estimated the extent of required work to be performed, which was used as the basis for the repair scope for contract documents. In addition, W | A Associates provided design services for waterproof deck coatings on decks and elevated walkways, and similar repair of the common areas and Community Building.

Then the project's scope increased to include complete interior retrofits, site drainage improvements, complete landscaping, and various ADA upgrades throughout. The $10.8 million project was completed in September of 2007.
