From the Harkins Header – November 2016

Harkins is nearing completion of the Mulberry at Park Apartments project in downtown Baltimore, MD.  Located at 211 West Mulberry Street, Mulberry at Park is a new seven-story metal stud and Hambro® building with 68 units of affordable apartments.

The project’s proximity to a major commuter road and adjacent properties meant very limited access and no staging areas. The building encompasses 100% of the site and is surrounded by Mulberry Street to the north, Tyson Street to the west, Pleasant Street to the south and an existing structure to the east that was only nine inches away. All incoming traffic and deliveries had to be carefully coordinated.

The site team had limited options and could not have a crane, hoist and manlifts all on the job at one time.  It was decided that the concrete subcontractor Chevy Chase would provide a crane to construct the Hambro and concrete structure, and Harkins would coordinate with Chevy Chase to utilize the crane’s downtime to get critical materials into the building. The use of the crane saved time and cost and allowed the masonry, steel stud and structural steel trades to accelerate their operations.
