CORAL CASINO BEACH & CABANA CLUB – SANTA BARBARA, CA
Coral Casino is a private beach club located on the Pacific Ocean. davisREED constructed new structural and mechanical systems, a new 5-star restaurant, an Olympic-size swimming pool, and extended the existing subterranean basement by approximately 3,000 SF to accommodate a new laundry facility. The construction was separated into two phases. Since the structures had been designated historical landmarks by the City, the development team was held to strict guidelines to preserve the historical charm of the property, which added to the complexity of construction. With respect to logistics, the project was bordered by one access road to the north of the building while the Pacific Ocean bordered the south and west and an exclusive residential property lay to the east. The only alternative for staging, hoisting, shakeout, and work sequence turned out to be the Olympic-sized swimming pool in the center of the horseshoe-shaped project. davisREED designed a shoring and scaffold system to fill the pool (which was completely retrofitted afterwards) to provide a laydown area for the structural steel, timber trusses, and MEP systems.
