WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
“The Big Canyon Townhomes Association selected CBCI Construction, Inc. to complete a major construction program at our development in Newport Beach, CA. We selected CBCI after an extensive interview process involving several other firms. Sean Murray of CBCI was the project manager for this $250,000 program which consisted of numerous small and large projects involving waterproofing of decks, stairs, balconies, and landings; rain gutters, subterranean waterproofing, structural and non-structural wood repairs, and other minor repairs.
CBCI provided our Board with a detailed project plan that included a concise scope of work, schedule, photographs and sketches, communication plan, and other helpful documents. The projects were completed in a timely manner and we were extremely pleased with the quality of CBCI’s work. Any complaints or questions were handled in a very prompt and professional manner and follow up was thorough.”
“CBCI Constrution performed an extensive wood repair and replacement project for our community that was the major portion of a program that spanned three years and had a value of approximately $1.4 million. This was a very complex project that involved 513 residences and several common area buildings. CBCI exceeded our expectations in terms of quality, schedule, and cost. CBCI saved our community a significant amount of money through creative and innovative construction approaches. Further, their efforts to minimize resident inconvenience and responsiveness to our requests were outstanding.
Our City Building Department initially advised us that any structures that were repaired or modified would need to be engineered and brought up to current code. With well over 100 wood balconies that were built to 1960’s code, this would have increased the deck repair cost by two or three fold which would have dramatically increased our budget and seriously impacted reserves. Further, many of the balconies were ‘cantilevered’ structures with joists that extended ten to twenty feet into the individual residences. The replacement of these joists would have involved extensive demotion and repair to the interior of the units along with the associated disruption and inconvenience to the residents.
CBCI worked with the City Building Department to more clearly define the City’s requirements in a way that significantly reduced the number of balconies that needed to be upgraded to current code. Further, they worked with our structural engineers to develop cost-effective designs for those balconies that did require code upgrade, one of which was an innovative design that eliminated the need to replace cantilevered joists. In other instances, they were able to use a special wood restoration product to repair major elements eliminating the need to remove and replace them. While we did not keep a detailed account, we are convinced that CBCI generated significant savings for the HOA through their innovation and creativity.”
