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.

For the 804 Congress Avenue project we are building a combined table and planter system to provide the restaurant with a sidewalk cafe setting in the heart of downtown.

The site is located on the northwest corner of Congress Ave and 8th Street (Two blocks from the Capitol building).

The steel rail provides an architectural feature, while at the same time providing a security feature for the restaurant patron in case of accidental car trying to leave the road.

This project is completely modular, and could be removed from the site if necessary. Hence the brackets seen inside of the planter.

This rail serves to designate the dining area from the pedestrian area on the sidewalk.

As part of this job we also designed and built this walk up ordering window.

This job provides a great example of how much we can do, regardless of the size of the space and the constraints of the job site.

Special thanks to Blue & Associates for using us on this job.
