Exterior Designs completes renovation of 114-unit Pavilion Condo Complex

February 16, 2012 - Construction Design & Engineering

Pavilion Condominium Complex at 170 Gore Street - Cambridge, MA

Exterior Designs recently completed exterior renovations to the Pavilion Condominium Complex at 170 Gore St. The 114-unit complex was in need of structural and cosmetic redesign due to a host of issues. Exterior Designs, Inc. was contracted to complete many different trades which included: demolition, sheathing, framing, EIFS, windows (including the entry glass curtain wall), sealants, waterproofing, deck coatings, structural supports, flashings and painting. The existing windows were replaced with more energy-efficient units and Exterior Designs performed an EIFS fa├žade renovation to complete the update.
Project manager, Bob Tupper and project superintendent, Aaron Fielder, played key roles in the project. Both worked closely with GRLA Associates, Thayer Associates, and Piper Associates. As with any "fast track" project that is completed while occupied - it presented challenges. At one point during the project EDI had to crane a lift into the courtyard and over the swimming pool in order to access the building. Thanks to our project management having previous experience with renovation projects of this size and difficulty EDI was up to the challenge.
