Carillion Point is a construction defect project on multi-family residential property in Kirkland, WA. Built in 1992, Carillon Point is a 132 unit apartment complex located on the shores of Lake Washington in Kirkland. The complex consists of twelve, four-story buildings. The existing siding suffered from years of wind and water intrusion.
All 12 buildings require substantial repairs to the sheathing and structural framing. Significant deficiencies to the building envelope were discovered as well as extensive dry rot. The units at Carillon Point are occupied while the project progresses and, as such, will require special precautions to be taken at the job-site.
Landmark project management teams are working closely with engineers, architects, city building officials and the owners to ensure the goals of the project are not only met but exceeded. The project scope includes removal of 165,000 SF of cedar lap siding, to be replaced with new James Hardie cement board lap and panel siding featuring a rain-screen system. The rain-screen system is designed to allow better ventilation for the building in wet climates, eliminating trapped moisture which leads to dry rot and water damage. In addition to the new rain-screen siding, windows and sliding glass doors are being removed and re-installed with newer, more energy-efficient products.
After inspection, the decks will be re-sheathed with new ACX plywood flooring, new elastomeric waterproof deck coatings, and metal flashing details. Also, a new aluminum railing system will be installed. All the buildings will be painted and will receive a new gutter and downspout system.
