Franklin Street Apartments
Redwood City, California
This three-story, 225-unit apartment complex was damaged by water infiltration, which resulted in widespread damage to framing, sheathing and structural components. To allow for proper drainage, concrete deck topping and sheathing was removed and reinstalled along with modifications to the slope of decks and walkways. All new courtyard and deck membranes were flood tested prior to pouring new topping slabs. New area drains, scuppers and edge draining was installed. Water damaged framing members were replaced. Apartment doors and frames were removed to install new sheathing, waterproofing membrane and metal flashings, requiring close coordination with the property manager and tenants. Repairs were completed to match the adjacent finish, color and texture. All work took place while the building was occupied with minimal disruption to the tenants.
