Case Study - Modular Construction

Certified CALGreen Project. Sacramento’s largest modular project to date, initiated by Capital Area Development Authority (CADA).

The prime goal of the development team for the Eviva was delivering a quality product using the safest possible methods of construction. While changing the modular manufacturer the development team implemented some design modifications and structural changes. To give the building a more distinctive appearance the balconies were widened and added a broader color palette. This required substantial coordination between Guerdon and Tricorp. The 200 units that filled the apartment mix were transported over 500 miles from Boise, Idaho to Sacramento.

Case Study - Alternative Materials & Methods Request

Breaking the limits of height with 6 stories of wood-framed Type IIIA over 2 stories of concrete for the first time in the United States using the AMMR (Alternate Means and Methods Request) process.

D & S Development -a prolific developer in the Sacramento, CA market was facing challenges making numbers work in a mixed-use urban infill project using the traditional 5 over 2 configuration which has been permitted in the Seattle Building Code for some time. The small urban infill site required more residential units to make it profitable within Sacramento’s competitive building market. The International Building Code (IBC) traditionally permits light wood-frame buildings up to five stories over a single-level podium. The project team had to provide a solution that would generate more units while eliminating the need for more expensive steel and concrete.
