AUSTIN - Based in Houston, TX with offices in Austin, San Antonio and Washington, DC, Harvey | Harvey-Cleary was founded in 1957 by David Harvey, Sr. Since then, Harvey | Harvey-Cleary has built a national reputation as an industry innovator, having constructed thousands of one-of-a-kind projects.




    With more than 650 employees nationwide and buildings in 26 states, the company’s approach to contracting, which emphasizes full collaboration, leading-edge expertise and an abiding commitment to integrity, is unique among most general contracting firms.
    Harvey | Harvey-Cleary began construction of The Village at The Triangle in Dec. 2016. The new 231,436sf 7-story independent living, assisted living, and memory care facility was completed 21 short months later in Sept. 2018. The new facility cost approximately $52,000,000 to construct.
    The exterior design of the building is composed of four materials – smooth/rough cut limestone, stucco, aluminum panels and Ipe hardwood – all of which help the structure blend with the Triangle’s existing buildings. Most residences feature five panel shaker entry doors, LVT wood flooring, and designer kitchens with shaker style cabinets, granite counters and stainless-steel appliances.
    The prime location in a high-end, mixed used development with close proximity to downtown Austin and other local landmarks make this project special. The club-like Sky Lounge, located on the 7th floor, provides views to the south of downtown and the UT campus. The building’s abundance of resort-style amenities includes an indoor heated saltwater pool, a fitness/aerobics center, a wellness activity spaces, a movie theater, an arts/crafts studio, a town hall, full service salons and a library, in addition to numerous lounges on multiple floors. Several dining options are available such as the Waterside Grille, The Parc, Trios Café, the Sky Lounge, and Waterside Terrace.  Additionally, a chef-curated herb garden is located on the dining terrace.
    As a senior living facility, there were numerous, extensive inspections through the Texas Department of Aging Disability Services (TDADS). The inspection process consisted of five- to eight-hour days with multiple TDADS inspectors checking life safety requirements per their standards, water temperatures, emergency power usage, and fire ratings. This process typically takes multiple inspections to pass, but the Harvey team passed on the first inspection. They utilized their previous experience and lessons learned from prior projects to ensure they met all the requirements prior to the initial inspection.
    The collaboration between Senior Project Manager Gerald McCarty, Project Manager Matt Brinkman, Project Manager Dan Shackleton, Senior Superintendent Sam Buchanan, Superintendent Quin Galloway, architectural firm House + Partners, interior design firm dg+a Interiors and owners W2 Real
Estate Partners and Bridgewood Property Company created a successful and profitable facility. The Harvey | Harvey-Cleary team held many coordination meetings to ensure all parties were on the same page and the same end goal.
    Jim Hepburn, Vice President of Construction, Bridgewood Property Company, applauded the Harvey team.
    “I wish to express the highest level of gratitude and appreciation from Bridgewood and Retirement Center Management,” Hepburn said.  “You guys are awesome and I am personally ecstatic about your team’s accomplishments at The Triangle.”
