El Capitan Apartments

Structural Restoration Project
Edmonds, WA

Designed by Roger Newell, AIA, El Capitan is a 33-unit modern jewel in the heart of downtown Edmonds. A rare load-bearing structural steel building with a stucco finish, the 1977 construction has tired and allowed water intrusion. The steel degraded significantly and the major components of the building were at risk of collapse.

GSG Group, Inc. guided the Association through the emergency repairs, then led the efforts to select designers and contractors. GSG Group established budgets, schedules, the HOA communication process, processes for funding and brought the project to bid, all within a six month timeframe.

GSG Group provided construction management during the re-cladding and improvement phase.
