A CLOSER LOOK AT THE PROJECT
The main goal of the client located in Glen Lake, NY was to demolish an existing dilapidated residence on their lake front property and redevelop the site to be their new home away from home.
The owners recognized that developing a coherent design and a comprehensive construction plan was of paramount importance. They also understood that their project was going to be a labor of love as well as one fraught with restrictions and challenges. So they made the strategic move to put together a design team that would collaborate to help them plan for the renovation of their property. The team was comprised of Geff Redick of Redbud Design LA, Tom Jarrett of Jarrett Engineers, PLLC (a storm water management engineer) and Jonathan Booth, an architect from the client’s home base of New Jersey.
DESIGN COMPONENTS/ RESTRICTIONS
As the targeted construction date was only a few months away Redbud’s role shifted from design to construction. During this shift we worked with the owners to secure final construction permits, finalize construction budgets and define the construction teams. Redbud made up half of the construction team focused on implementing the site work while the house project manager remained responsible for the house. The two distinct entities worked together to define a schedule and pool resources. Construction commenced with the demolition of the existing home a few days after Labor Day.
