Carmel Creek Apartments is a sprawling 36 building complex in north east Houston close to 290 and Hollister Road. As part of the rehabilitation, the entire site was rebranded to showcase the new look. Exterior repairs included heavy carpentry, full paint, roofs, fence welding, dumpster enclosures, chimney cap replacement, brick and mortar work, stair tread replacement, concrete and parking lot striping, landscaping and outdoor kitchen installation. Interior repairs included a complete restoration of the clubhouse with removal of the chimney and installation of a wall of windows as well as a 24 hour residential access fitness center.
Once walls were opened up in the clubhouse, decisions had to be made to proceed. Because structural members were either inadequate for the plans or missing, creativity, along with communication was key in making sure the owners ended up with a beautiful office space. With advice from the designer and input from the ownership, potential pitfalls were quickly resolved.
