7700 Parmer – Demolition (In Progress…)

The 7700 Parmer project is a 90,000+ sq. ft. selective demolition of high tech office space in North Austin. This job has presented challenges from the beginning as is the nature of selective demo in tech buildings (you never know what’s behind that second ceiling).

Coordinating with hauling to maximize our daily efficiency is the key to success when working with these volumes.

1. For this project we are installing a unique system of green barrier framing designed by Mark Hutchinson which will all but eliminate heat transfer and create an well insulated energy efficient working space.  The building will feature a steel frame mezzanine in the middle of the building.

This is unique wood framing in the interior of the building which our carpenters are installing.

Thanks to Roy for making sure Shane got this one right.

R3 also did the selective demolition of the original building to make way for the new design, see the photos in the gallery below for examples of the demolition.

This is an ongoing project. Look for more information and pictures to come.

As part of the project we shored up this wall and made cutouts according to architectural plans.

This job shows our ability to work in large spaces, and on a big scale. This door is xx feet high, but can be moved by an individual person.

Special thanks to Blue & Associates for using us on this demolition and steel project.

50,000 sqft Demolition 

This is an old Albertons at William Cannon & Westgate. Going to be turned into 2 spaces: A church and a trampoline fun park called ‘Altitude’. Literally tons of material came out of this place. Recycled metal, concrete, and several walk in coolers. Second picture shows a ‘new’ scissor lift we bought…more toys!


Castillian Demolition

Although I personally never had the pleasure of living in the Castillian, I did visit many times. Good to see this building will be receiving a face lift/new look.

We are nearing the end of a 4 week demolition project. Tasked with removing concrete from the soffits/overhangs, tearing out walls, and removing the front facade, we are nearly done.

This is our highest profile job to date.
