Construction

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

What do King Syrup and Race Pace Bicycles Have in Common?

2018-01-11T20:57:38+00:00

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

Building for an Aging Population

2018-01-11T20:58:08+00:00

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.

Changes Coming to Annapolis City Dock aka “Ego Alley”

2017-12-17T20:48:29+00:00

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!
