Flats at Springhurst
Flats at Springhurst will include 249 urban-style apartments and a parking garage in the heart of Louisville. Lithko installed the cast in place garage, apartment foundations, slabs, and site wall foundations. Additionally, our scope on the parking garage included items we typically do not self-perform: plumbing and structural steel/miscellaneous metals.
Along with the typical hurdles that come with a tight project site, layout was a significant challenge due to the proximity of the apartments and parking garage. There is only a 2-inch space in between both structures on two of the sides, creating difficulties to ensure the garage is vertically plumb.
The garage portion is design build and Lithko contracted out the Structural Engineering to THP. This took months of upfront planning, working through the needs of the customer, architect, and the integration of the garage and apartments.
Our team utilized our Project Execution Process, to provide the customer with a very detailed schedule and project plan during our Customer Plan Presentation. This included our scheme to execute the garage, which enabled them to sequence the surrounding apartment work. With the use of our Daily Preparation Process we were able to not only maintain the project schedule, but we accelerated it by 10 days and absorbed all weather impacts.
