New Construction




Caswell Court (Eklutna Estates II Senior Housing)

Owner: Cook Inlet Housing Authority

This project consisted of the construction of a new 36,183 SF senior housing facility known as “Caswell Court” located in East Anchorage within CIHA’s Centennial Village campus.  Caswell Court is the newest elder rental property for seniors (age 55 or older) in the Centennial Village community and consists of 34 units with 26 one-bedroom units and 8 two-bedroom units.  Each apartment is fully accessible and features a washer and dryer in the unit, large in-unit storage space and interior entryway space.  The project was designed to be a five star plus energy rated structure.  That required a hybrid building envelope system of vapor barrier, BATT insulation, exterior wall sheathing, rigid insulation and weather barrier.  This system along with the use of spray foam in key locations enabled the building to over achieve on the expected air infiltration.  As a result of our ability to have a third of the air infiltration originally anticipated the project easily achieved a BEES six star rating. 

UNIT was tasked with performing construction in an area densely populated by seniors.  We had to be extremely conscientious of the neighborhood and tenants surrounding us.  There were noise limitations and curfews with regard to when work could be performed.  There was very active pedestrian traffic surrounding our jobsite that affected material deliveries.  The project had minimal site storage so we had to coordinate the material deliveries efficiently and provide traffic control to protect the civilians in the area.
