HarenLaughlin Restoration Wins Prestigious National Industry Award for a Condominium Project at Briarcliff
HarenLaughlin Restoration was called upon by a property management firm and their Homeowners Association client in the spring of 2014 to assist in the budgeting of repairs for two four story condominiums in Kansas City, Missouri due to construction defect related damages. Work commenced in June 2015 on this project and it was completed in February 2016. One item that made this project unique was the fact that both structures were fully occupied during the entire project and all crews had to be contentious of daily clean, parking and staging areas, paths of egress for the residents with respect to associated parking structures, as well as general respect for the residents and their property during such an extensive reconstruction. We had a full time superintendent that was dedicated to the oversight of the project and insured that cleanliness and respect for the residents was upheld at all times. All subcontractors and tradesmen were given advance notice as to this expectation prior to commencing work on the project. HarenLaughlin’s attention to details and ingenuity prompted substantial savings for the Homeowner’s Association. While the cost savings that we did provide the project owners on repairs were only a few percentage points, the real savings were on the potential loss of use claim. This was the most critical component of our cost saving creativity and was realized by the home owner’s ability to live in their residence during the entire construction process due to the fact that we planned and staged the project in an effort to access all work areas from the exterior so as to not hinder daily living on the interior of any residence. This project was one of HarenLaughlin Restoration’s most logistically challenging projects to date and through hard work, reconstruction innovation and detailed communication from the outset, we successfully completed the extensive project effectively reducing cost to the HOA while minimizing inconvenience to the individual unit owners.
