Commercial Construction

Gateway West

Gateway West in Reading, PA was one of the most complex sites we have worked on. The whole jobsite was surrounded by existing rowhomes and narrow streets lined with parked cars.

Work crews meticulously navigated excavation equipment, concrete trucks, drywall trucks, and lumber and truss deliveries through extremely tight alleys to reach the jobsite. In appreciation for the nearby residents who patiently dealt with construction activity, we distributed gift cards to the neighborhood.

The site was home to a former elevator factory and contained hazardous materials that were assessed and closely monitored by an environmental consultant. Contaminants and soils were shipped to special landfills in Michigan and Pennsylvania, and a 24” engineering cap of clean soil was added to prevent contact with any remaining contaminated subsoils.
The $11.7 million project features 11 buildings with 47 housing units. Each unit is approximately 1600 sq. ft. in size with three bedrooms, two baths, and an attached garage.

Gateway West also includes a community building with common laundry space for residents.
