New Ownership Structure Announced!

With the New Year came a notable milestone for all of us at Waverly — January 4, 2017 marked the start of our 25th year in business!  In this landmark year we are looking to the future and embarking on a new and very exciting path that includes adding new Owners to the structure of our business.

As Waverly’s founding partners, we recognized the need for a balanced long-term commitment to our industry and to our community.  As part of this, we have taken … CLICK LINK BELOW TO READ MORE!

Changes Coming to Annapolis City Dock aka “Ego Alley”

Changes Coming to Annapolis City Dock aka “Ego Alley”

Surrounding the waterfront property at 110 Compromise Street, signs read, “No Docking”, “Sidewalk Closed”, and “Danger! Peligro! Construction Area”; But what these signs are actually revealing to this Annapolis community is that new life is being breathed into this long unoccupied building.  Formerly home to Fawcett Boat Supplies, the building has remained vacant since their move many years ago, and has been the subject of much debate by the city and developers as to just what to do with it.  Last spring the property was purchased by 110 Compromise Operator, LLC with the vision of creating a mixed-use facility that would include maritime tenants and a restaurant with waterfront and rooftop seating.

The Owner, working closely with Hammond Wilson Architects and Waverly Construction, has spent many months evaluating, planning, designing and pricing options to renovate this 11,158 sf property and construction is now underway.  Plans for this space include adding a rooftop structure, dining deck and raising the ground floor to mitigate the potentials of flooding. All of this means a substantial upgrade to the structure to support the added loads. Waverly has begun the first phase of construction with layout, demolition and new helical pier foundation.  Once the piers are complete, concrete works and structural steel work can begin.

We are very excited to be working with this very talented team in improving the waterfront of Annapolis City Dock; making it a place that people will want to go, whether by car, foot or by boat!

Conveniently located near the harbor, with easy access to both I-95 and the city center, the project known as 1414 Key Highway, an investment of the Goodier Property Group, and once home to the Mangels-Herold Company, a distributor of corn syrup, is one filled with history and character.  In the Mangels-Herold days, an early rendition of entrepreneurial spirit recognized that the end-product of heating corn syrup was a golden brown thick, sweet result which became known as King Syrup.  King Syrup was made and distributed from this Key Highway location until the building was converted to office, retail and light industrial use.

Revitalizing 1414 Key Highway has been exciting and, with the building being nearly fully occupied:  challenging.    Race Pace Bicycles, a tenant since 2011, was the first to be relocated within this postindustrial building in order to make way for the new headquarters of the buildings latest lessee, Planit, Inc.

Waverly Construction is honored to have been chosen as the General Contractor for Race Pace’s new space as well as the buildings core and shell work and fit-out for another soon to be relocated tenant.

Race Pace, serving Baltimore’s cyclists since 1978, moved into their newly renovated 13,000 sf space at 1414 Key Highway on March 1, 2016.  Designed by Ammon Heisler Sachs Architects, the project start point was to level the floor of this once-upon-a-time industrial facility. With improvements that included  pouring concrete entry stairs (complete with a bike ramp), new wood flooring, glass block windows, storefront, retail fixtures, new mechanical and electrical design, and extensive use of LED lighting; the new space is not only highly functional, but very aesthetically pleasing and modern.

Serving a diverse community of cyclists, The Race Pace team is proud of their line-up, being able to offer their customers over 450 bikes built on the floor and a wide selection of accessories and clothing for the novice and seasoned cyclist alike; as well as housing a knowledgeable service facility.   The people of Race Pace have worked hard to make the store a mainstay and hub of bicycle activity in Baltimore’s burgeoning cycling scene and with healthy living and exercise on the rise, we expect them to be around for a long time.

As you may know, Waverly is active with and committed to the American Diabetes Association.  Most currently, the upcoming Tour-de-Cure bicycling event being held on May 7, 2016 in Cooksville, Maryland.  Waverly’s own Ed Audy will be riding in this event; with his family and many of the Waverly staff participating to raise money and awareness to help combat this menacing disease.

What you may not know is that Race Pace will also be participating in this event providing ride support on event day.  They will have a fully equipped mechanic to help address bike issues for the riders, furnish support vehicles with basic mechanics’ kits, and will be offering weekly flat tire classes at each of their locations.  And, for those that want to ride, but do not have a bike, Race Pace offers bicycle rental!

Building for an Aging Population

Building for an Aging Population

The demographics of aging are somewhat astounding.  Many predict that by 2030, the segment of our populace which is 65 or older will make up 19% of our country’s population.  With this remarkable growth comes an increasing demand for related health care services, including senior living facilities.  This has resulted in intensified design and construction of new living facilities for the aging. There has also been a surge in maintenance and upgrades to the numerous existing facilities within our region, making them more appealing to prospective residents and their families.

Within the Baltimore region, Waverly Construction has been honored to work in a number of senior living facilities as they strive to maintain environments that are not only  wonderful places to live, but in which the residents can maintain their dignity and feel secure.

Having completed a number of projects in The Shelter Group’s Brightview independent living, assisted living and dementia care communities, we know what it takes to help enhance these facilities.  Working in occupied spaces presents a specific set of challenges in itself.  Working in an environment that is home to the aging, sick and disabled takes special care, attention and coordination.  It is not just a construction process, it becomes a relationship with the people that work and live in these communities.

Our most recent projects for Brightview encompassed upgrades and renovations to common and administrative areas of their Mays Chapel, Bel Air and White Marsh complexes.  These upgrades not only created a more pleasing look and feel, but increased efficiency and functionality for the facilities day-to-day operations.

We are excited to expand our senior living client list with the recent contract award for renovations to Ginger Cove-Annapolis’ Physical Therapy Suite.  Alterations will include demolition, new millwork, drywall, acoustical ceilings, new flooring, painting, and MEP modifications.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

Working closely with Arris | a Design Studio, Inc., COPT and the tenant, the Wargaming project in Timonium has been completed!  A 7,688 sf interior fit-out that created quite a challenging but rewarding experience for Waverly and our subcontractors.  The project included nearly 300 lf of curved bulkheads and installed metal panel ceilings with clouds. All of this was fit around 40 aluminum framed Wilson partitions and clearstory windows.  The project looks amazing and the customer is thrilled!

Wargaming Chicago-Baltimore houses the development team responsible for the console edition of Wargaming.net’s flagship title, World of Tanks.  Gamers can check them out at www.wargaming.com

Blue Book Network Showcase 2015

20151022_123858bIt was Waverly’s first tradeshow and what an experience!  The Blue Book put together an incredible event and we were told that participation (both exhibitors and attendees) was over-the-top compared to previous years.

Mary Van Divner and Pam Hundley spent the afternoon scoping out the competition (and gathering their giveaways!), meeting many wonderful people, putting faces to names and catching up with valued associates.

It was an exhausting afternoon, but well worth it!  We are looking forward to next year’s Showcase and seeing you all there!

Across the Ocean

Many people do not realize we have a sister company, EastWave Building Company, in Poland.  If you visit our offices you will see that we not only fly the U.S. Flag, but also Poland’s; as well as displaying project photos from across the ocean.  These are exciting times for EastWave as they provide services on two very interesting projects.

A13The first, POLNA OFFICE BUIDLING, involves EastWave acting as the Project Manager, collaborating on the design process, managing the General Contractor selection and ultimately supervising the successful contractor once construction begins.

EastWave’s involvement during pre-construction was instrumental in the Team achieving a BREEAM EXCELENT CLASSIFICATION for building design.  This qualifies the POLNA OFFICE BUIDLING as the highest BREEAM classification of any project currently on the market in Poland under the 2013 revisions.   Scheduled to begin in September 2015, this 10,000m2 new building and 6,000m2 historical renovation has already achieved great accolades.

BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) is considered by many to be the globe’s foremost environmental assessment method and rating system for buildings.  BREEAM sets the standard for best practice in sustainable building design, construction and operation and has become one of the most comprehensive and widely recognized measures of a building’s environmental performance. It encourages designers, clients and others to think about low carbon and low impact design, minimizing the energy demands created by a building before considering energy efficiency and low carbon technologies.  Often compared to LEED in the U.S., BREEAM is the world’s longest established and most widely used method of environmental assessment.

The second, BUDDHAS HALL WARSZAWA, is a 1,300m2 project, combining both renovation and new construction.  EastWave, acting as the Construction Manager, is overseeing subBuddhas Hall presentation ENG 21contractor work packages to include:  new structural work, mechanical, electrical, site and interior finishes.  This facility, which will be the largest Buddhist Center in Warsaw, is to be used for Education, Meditation, Dining and Sleeping for the Diamond Way Buddhists in Warsaw.  It will function as a meeting point for all Polish and central European Buddhists, with a goal of making Buddhism accessible to the public in Polish, as something understandable rather than exotic.

Diamond Way Buddhism is a network of lay meditation centers within the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, founded by Lama Ole Nydahl and under the spiritual authority of H.H. 17th Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje.
