The Flats East Bank Project is a 20-acre, mixed-use development in Cleveland, Ohio. Phase I of the development included a state-of-the-art office tower with an open-air rooftop deck for tenants.
The initial phase also included a 150-room boutique hotel, a variety of restaurants, entertainment offerings, a 16,000+ sq. ft. health club, an inviting public gathering space including a 1,200-foot riverfront boardwalk, and an urban beach.
Phase II included a 140-unit residential complex along the water, additional restaurant offerings and unique retail/entertainment selections.
Phase I Construction of the Flats East Bank Development was on a tight site in an urban environment with many constraints, including adjacent facilities, limited lay-down areas, and a high volume of vehicular and pedestrian traffic. To manage this complexity, the construction management team developed and implemented site-specific Logistics and Traffic Control Plans. To minimize disruptions to the surrounding area, among other aspects of concrete supply, Tech Ready Mix provided the supply of concrete for a Jersey barrier with a chain link fence around the construction site to aid in coordination with the construction management team, adjacent building managers and local authorities regarding all lane closures and changes to traffic flow.
The Flats East Bank Project is registered to as a LEED-ND (Neighborhood Development); it incorporates sustainable site design practices such as green roofs, permeable pavements, and bio-retention. Permeable paving is a method of paving vehicle and pedestrian pathways that allows for infiltration of fluids. In pavement design the base is the top portion of the roadway that pedestrians or vehicles come into contact with. The media used for the base of permeable paving may be porous, to allow for fluids to flow through it, or nonporous media that are spaced so that fluid may flow in between the gaps. Concrete for the permeable pavements was supplied by TRM.
