Welcome to the neighborhood

AUSTIN - The Allandale neighborhood welcomes Burnet 64 condominiums. This project is a residential multifamily done by Bartlett Cocke General Contractors. With all of Austin’s growth and appreciation for art, the Burnet 64 condos are essential.

 

 

 

 

The owner of the 64 Burnet condos is LD&C. The new construction of a 40-unit condominium and parking garage was supervised by project manager Chris Lewis, superintendent John Dombrowski and Levy Architects. The relationship between each company comes from sharing a construction background. Jason Price, senior project manager, mentions, “It helps when your client comes from a construction background, we were able to brainstorm together to resolve complicated issues in a timely and cost effective matter.” The project was completed in 12 months. 
    Of course, with any project come challenges. The challenge faced was accessibility and logistics. “The only access we had was in the setback off Burnet Road. The rest of footprint was pushed out all the way to the lot lines. We had to come up with a creative way for construction accessibility and logistics,” says Price. Their creativity was a success and access was granted. Burnet Road has a high volume of commuters due to the Allandale commercial areas.
    Taking a look from bottom to top you’ll notice the four-story building with wood framed structure with metal panels. Then the brick and stucco as exterior skin. Price told Construction News, “This was our first wood framed multifamily project for our company.” It’s gratifying when a general contractor fulfills a project by successfully performing an action. The interior materials used were luxury vinyl tile in the bedrooms and living quarters. The bathrooms contain porcelain tile. As for the condo’s countertops, they are quartz and the interior is finished with Whirlpool appliances.
    The exterior of the project is also highlighted with the artist Drib’s birds and beaks. The photo of the brick sidewall mural consists of several birds with beaks. Some colored and the rest black and white. The masterpiece has even found its way inside the building. Some hallways have the famous birds hanging on the walls. 
    Bartlett Cocke in Austin has completed many commercial projects, but this one counts as a memorable one. They not only managed to install wood framing that has this building looking state-of-the-art, but also maintain a positive relationship with each other.
    Bartlett Cocke is a general contractor serving Texas since 1959. –lv
