Sondermann Enterprises, Inc. - Portside Ventura Harbor Project Wins the Technical Plan Review - Mixed-Use Award at the QB Builder Awards for 2017
Fort Lauderdale, FL (Feb. 08, 2018) – Sondermann Enterprises, Inc. is a California general building contractor that was established by Michael Sondermann in 1992. 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 Portside Ventura Harbor project located in Ventura, CA.
On January 9, 2018, it was announced that Sondermann Enterprises, Inc.’s Portside Ventura Harbor project was the winner of the 2017 QB Technical Plan Review Award for mixed-use construction. This particular project was deserving of this award, as it had the lowest percentage of items that needed correction in comparison to all other multi-family/mixed-use TPRs performed by QB in 2017.
The Portside Ventura Harbor project consists of 300 residential housing units, including 270 apartments and 30 live/work spaces; 21,200 square-feet of commercial and retail space on the ground floor; a new recreational marina with 104 boat slips; a water taxi stop; a two-acre public waterfront park; a 50-foot wide waterfront; a public-access promenade; a public dock for personal watercraft like kayaks and paddle boards; and plenty of parking.
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 are 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.
