LOCATION – West Slope, Portland OR | PROJECT – Complex Seismic Deck
We set out to renovate this client’s deck, which turned out to be a mighty feat. The home was tucked away on a private drive with a steep slope, which made the worksite extremely difficult to navigate. We had to come up with a way to move thousands of buckets of dirt up the hill and down the narrow driveway in order to build a new custom multi-tiered IPE deck.
Due to the location, we had to do a massive dig-out on this steep hillside with limited access to the driveway. In order to move all the material, we created an intelligent conveyor system and with tons of labor. Spoils moved up the hillside to be trucked off using the narrow access driveway. There was an unbelievable amount of material to remove.
With the newly engineered footings, substantial concrete columns, the multi-tiered deck takes shape with careful precision. Once again, our special process in the installation of the joisting system is designed for decades of trouble-free performance.
