Summarize the project's program, features, and achievements: Carson Court is a multi-building development located on the Route 33 corridor, within 75 miles from the Port of New York and New Jersey. 51 Carson Court is situated within seven miles of I-78 connectivity and includes 92 dock positions, 4 drive-in bays, and the surrounding expansive auto and trailer parking enable convenient distribution. The high functioning building features 8,265 square feet of 2-story office space at opposite corners and the nearly 400,000 square feet, including 40’ clear ceiling heights within the structure allow a wide array of office layout possibilities. The exterior entrance features stylistic design elements with stripe-textured formliner stamping, embedded steel accents, reveal work, and protruding return walls.
What obstacles were overcome related to the schedule, budget, program, specification, site, etc. on this project? The Carol Concrete field team’s proactive approach to verifying plans saved this project from many potential hardships. One such good catch was an observation by Carol Concrete superintendent detecting a discrepancy between number and location of embeds in one set of plans versus another. Structural, architectural, mechanical, and trade specific plans were checked by the field team before critical portions of the job were executed. This cross-verification, along with our collaboration with ARCO, made for a project with few errors in execution. The devotion to making sure it was done correctly the first time eased the challenges of staying on schedule and within budget – making for a successful project for all. Carol Concrete was responsible for the tilt wall work, exclusively.
Please communicate any engineering complexities or unique features of the panel design for this project. ? The attractive facade elements of the building were created using formliners and reveals. As is always necessary with these accents, great care was taken in the installation of these formliners such that lines of the building were continuous and features remained pleasing to the eye without the need for rework and patching.
