7/20 Swimming Pool

posted by Jen

In this heat wave a pool is a wonderful amenity. Why not enclose it for use throughout the year. That is what this community Association in Pennsylvania would like to do. For a design consultation with one of our design professionals contact us at www.jhersheyarchitecture.com.

7/11 Erosion

posted by Jen

There is a right way and a wrong way to control erosion along the shoreline of a pond. We were informed this stonework was done only a year ago (probably at a significant cost) and it is already failing. How many problems can you see with this construction?

7/4 Happy 4th of July

posted by Jen

Happy 4th of July from all of us at J. Hershey Architecture! Did you know that on July 13th JHA staff will be attending CAI Central Florida’s Meet the Managers Event? This sold-out, limited seating event gives business partners a chance to sit down and meet one-on-one with property managers in a “speed dating” format. As a member of multiple CAI Chapters we understand that successful relationships between business partners and management companies helps to ease the daily stress on managers by providing them with a reliable support system.

6/19 Repair Projects

posted by Jen

Construction administration for repairs is a service we regularly provide for multi-family Associations. For each Association shown below, we first performed an initial evaluation of their balconies to determine the extent of renovations needed, then created the repair specifications and assisted with the bid process. Contractors were chosen for the repairs and we are now monitoring the work with weekly site visits followed by a comprehensive report detailing the progress. If your Association is in need of a repair/replacement project contact us today at 847.549.5900 for a proposal!
