Fireside Housing

The old Fireside Inn was renovated, and the Fireside Motel demolished to make way for 17 residential duplexes, and 32 senior housing units. Cahill Contractors was the G.C., TWM Architects the designer, and Firma Design Group the civil engineer. The total project area of this site was 1.3 acres, and involved numerous constraints, including: A midden in the middle of the project that required careful routing of all utilities around the sensitive areas Two very different soil composites – bay mud on one side, and hard rock on the other side of the site Striping revision to State Route 1 (fronting the project), along with a new crosswalk, and sidewalk improvements along State Route 1. Firma prepared design review and construction plans for onsite and offsite (CalTrans) improvements, drainage studies, and construction coordination.
