Malibu Canyon Village Homeowners Association

Before-and-After-Maliby-Canyon-Village-Design-Build-Associates
Location: Malibu, California
Units: 104
Services Provided: Construction Management

This Association was in very poor shape when they contacted Design Build Associates.  Their buildings leaked from the roofs, the stucco, the balconies, the windows and the sliding glass doors.  They were dealing with mold issues and threatening litigation.  We immediately developed a scope of work for them that would address the entire exterior envelope and stop the water intrusion.  We assisted them in explaining the issues to their homeowners and helping them to pass an assessment and then obtaining a loan so they could afford to move forward with the project.  With new roofs and a clean tight exterior, they no longer have to worry about the Malibu weather and the old problems they experienced when it would rain.  During the Malibu Fires of 2007, the fire threatened the buildings.  They give credit to the recently renovated new exterior finishes that the buildings were spared from the fire.  Their landscaping was destroyed, but the buildings were untouched.


El Escorial Homeowners Association

El-Escorial-Homeowners-Association-Design-Build-Associates
Location: Santa Barbara, California
Units: 261
Services Provided: Construction Management

This project had suffered greatly from an improper condo conversion that allowed water and mold to infiltrate the walls and the interior of the units.  There was a great deal of dry rot and termite damage in the building framing as a direct result of this water intrusion.  Design Build Associates was hired to assist this Association in a complete rehabilitation of the exterior, including the complete removal of the exterior stucco down to the studs and a reconstruction of the exterior waterproofing envelope.  Following the renovation, we worked with the Association to restore their lush landscaping.


Briarcliffe Homeowners Association

Briarcliffe-Homeowners-Association-Design-Build-Association
Location: Reseda, California
Units: 295
Services Provided: Construction Management

This was a complex that sustained damage during the Northridge Earthquake and was severely compromised from deferred maintenance.  This $17 million project began with Design Build assisting the Association in the settlement of their earthquake claim.  We then formulated a complete scope of work that included the interior as well as the exterior of their 39 buildings.   The completed exterior contained all new stucco, doors, windows, roofs, new sidewalks, entry porches, steps, new landscaping and asphalt repairs.  Interiors included all drywall repairs and paint, new kitchens and newly installed floor finishes.


Hidden Canyon Homeowners Association

Hidden-Canyon-Homeowners-Association-Design-Build-Associates
Location: Thousand Oaks, California
Units: 648
Services Provided: Construction Management

This large complex had extensive construction defects which caused water intrusion and related mold.  It also had soils issues, causing problems with their building foundations.  The 1994 Earthquake also contributed to further damage.  Design Build Associates was hired after the Association had already made repeated attempts with several other construction management companies to correct these conditions.  We formulated a system and have individually repaired over 500 units throughout the complex.  Foundation underpinnings have been completed on one “test” building, and several remaining buildings are pending repair.
