Rodan Builders was awarded phase II on the historic retrofit of the Men’s Faculty Club at UC Berkeley. The main goal of this retrofit was to replace the Seaborg deck, repair and replacement of all of the exterior windows and trim, along with minor roof repairs and architectural woodwork. The Men’s Faculty Club was built back in the early 1900’s, and preserving the historical look and feel was extremely important.
This project had many other challenges as the building was occupied during the entire project. There is a full restaurant, conference rooms, and hotel that is a part of the club. So scheduling the work around all of the activities was done daily to avoid work during meetings, weddings, and many other events.
Even with the challenges above we were able to finish the project on scheduled and within the budget, but most importantly a happy client.
