1500 Harbor Blvd is an ambitious luxury apartment project situated in a sought-after neighborhood in Weehawken New Jersey. The site, located on the edge of the Hudson River, boasts a magnificent view of the Manhattan skyline.
This 216, 029 square foot project is comprised of 6 residential floors and was designed by Minno and Wasko architects. The post-tension slabs on the project required a large amount of stud rails- approximately 3500 which were supplied by Peikko USA.
According to Mauricio Aguirre, Roy Rock LLC’s Project Engineer, stud rails provide more than just a slim floor. “In terms of benefits, stud rails are easier to use and more convenient than other solutions in eliminating drop panels”, he says.
Sometimes unexpected challenges arise which may delay the schedule for a project’s completion. Alan Kaplan, Roy Rock LLC’s chief estimator was faced with such a challenge for this project when stud rails needed to be delivered on a very tight deadline:
“Between your Sales rep Ben Bernhard, project manager David Canuel, and facilities manager Stephen Breese, they were able to produce all of the stud rails while our driver was on route to your facility to pick them up. No one on either project believed we could make it happen, but your crew calmly and professionally took care of the situation”, says Alan Kaplan.
Peikko succeeded in meeting the demanding schedule due to what sets us apart from our competition- exceptionally fast and quality service.
