The Haven at Atwater
The Haven at Atwater project consists of the new construction of nine high-end apartment buildings overlooking a scenic quarry in Malvern, Pennsylvania. The Haven at Atwater totals 462,343 SF with 326-units and a number of community features and amenities. These amenities include a sports simulator game room, virtual exercise room, a fitness center, car wash bay, dog wash station, walking trail access, a resort-style heated saline pool, and fireside outdoor lounge area with gas grills and a sundeck. The development also includes a gastropub, cyber café, iMac business center, conference room and available garages. The buildings are supported by conventional shallow concrete foundations and slab-on-grade systems and are predominately timber-framed.

The scope of work included the testing and inspection services of soils/earthwork (mass grading, fill placement, utilities, segmental retaining wall monitoring, and stormwater management), foundations/spread footings, cast-in-place concrete, reinforcing steel, floor flatness, structural steel, light-gauge structural framing, masonry, pavement, and wood framing.
