Racanelli Construction Company, Inc. recently completed an extensive renovation project on behalf of Atria Glen Cove Senior Living Community (Glen Cove, NY). The company, which served as the Construction Manager on the project, was awarded the contract by the Olsl Glen Cove, LLC (Louisville, KY). Racanelli is also serving on another senior living community project for the company, Atria Ossining (Ossining, NY).
For Atria Glen Cove, Racanelli renovated 80 apartments in the five-floor, 80-unit, 65,000 square foot complex. The project entailed the installation of a new drainage system around the building’s exterior and under the first floor slab, and waterproofing of the entire foundation wall and first floor slab. It required the demolition and complete rebuilding of the building’s entire first floor’s existing walls, and the installation of new walls and finishes throughout the first floor. Steel framing with exterior S/R cultured stone were used to update the building.
According to Project Executive Michael Racanelli, the Atria Glen Cove project was unique because of a prior issue the building had with water infiltration which has been remediated through the renovation. In conducting the renovation and in particular, the waterproofing phase of the project, considerable inclement weather presented an obstacle. In addition to Racanelli, other members of the project team included: Project Manager Steve Peragallo, Project Supervisor Ray Riha and Project Administrator Christine Shultz.
As part of its role as Construction Manager, Racanelli assisted the client in securing approvals from the Department of Health.
