Project Brief
City of Santa Barbara Housing Authority commissioned the construction of this residential facility.
Elements specific to the project

McGillivray Construction was able to successfully mitigate the challenges of constructing this 3-story facility with podium deck parking. What made this project challenging was that the job site was surrounded on 3 sides by structures within close proximity to the property line and the street, resulting in no space for staging or laydown. This project was a LIHTC project and required construction to be completed within a very aggressive time frame. MCG was not only able to meet the contract completion date but delivered the project one month early.

Project highlights

  • Mitigated the problem of excavation and transportation of contaminated soil of the entire site, and rebuilt the site with clean dirt.
  • Instead of 4 months of delays, we quoted 2 months, yet we required only a 30 day extension to the contract completion date.
  • Built a parking structure on top of 3 story complex with over 125 driven concrete piles – ongoing 5 feet from the popular FM radio station in down town Santa Barbara without excessive noise.
  • Project received several awards for construction and architecture.Combined the production techniques used in large housing developments in a urban setting.
  • Successfully helped the owner to keep the cost of changes of the project to a minimum and well below industry standards.
