The Plaza Condominiums
Pacific Beach, California
Aging condo complex with building systems reaching the end of their useful life. History of progressing plumbing issues within a copper water system that lacked shut off capability to individual units, floors or plumbing stacks, requiring an intricate phased approach to minimize water service downtime for residents.
Nautilus was brought in based on our successful completion of a previous challenging with one of the Board members. We provided expert advice over the course of four workshops that included Board members and a team of construction professionals. This led to an investigation, analysis and eventual repair concepts and design. Our main task was the complete replacement of the copper potable water lines, but we also upgraded lighting and fiber optics at the same time. We first completed work on one of the five buildings as proof of concept, which led to the approval for Nautilus to reconstruct the remaining four.
