This 19,500 square foot addition and interior renovation increased the num- ber of residential units and community space. After consulting with the client, BCI developed a cost saving alternative to the original plans which required structural fill due to site conditions in order to provide for the single-story ex- pansion. As a value engineering solu- tion BCI developed a cost effective two- story addition eliminating the need for costly structural fill. Precast foundation system in lieu of cast-in-place concrete foundation was used for the lower level which contained the administrative of- fices and community space. Additional cost savings resulted from completion of foundation work in weeks, rather than months. The new, two-story addi- tion met the client’s needs and dead- lines. BCI was sensitive to the needs of the residents, staff, and administration as the building remained fully occupied and operational while construction was underway.
