Barry Swenson Builders - The Graduate - Honored to be Nominated for the Technical Plan Review - Multi-Family/Mixed-Use Award at the QB Builder Awards for 2017

Fort Lauderdale, FL (Feb. 08, 2018) – Barry Swenson Builders is located in California and has been established for more than 100 years. They take pride in their work and understand that well thought out and comprehensive architectural design plans are crucial to the success of a building structure. That is why they partnered with Quality Built (QB), a national third-party QA inspection company, to perform a Technical Plan ReviewTM (TPR) on their The Graduate project located in San Jose, CA.  The Graduate is a 260-unit off-campus housing structure, complete with a three-story parking deck, exercise center, swimming pool, sports courts and 14,750 square-feet of retail space, located within one block of San Jose State University (SJSU).

On January 9, 2018, it was announced that Barry Swenson Builders’ The Graduate project was nominated for the 2017 QB Technical Plan Review Award for multi-family construction. It is an honor to be nominated for this award, as QB performed TPRs on multi-family/mixed-use structures all across the U.S. in 2017. Of all of the TPRs performed last year, The Graduate project stood out to have some of the lowest percentage of items that needed correction in comparison to all other multi-family/mixed use projects observed.

The Value of a Technical Plan Review

Elimination of construction risk can begin with the plans. A TPR of construction documents for recurring “hot spots”, constructability and performance issues can save a builder from a major disaster. In their TPRs, Quality Built provides their clients with a comprehensive analysis of their project documents; looking for errors, completeness of specifications and conflicting and/or missing details. Although architectural firms can be extremely talented and knowledgeable on what they do, there is always room for improvement, and a peer review can help address items that could be improved upon.
